Target Acquired: The Mummy Demastered

The Mummy Demastered, is a metroidvania that is a licensed tie-in to the new Universal film The Mummy. Rather than a 3D game tie-in, the studio opted for a Super Metroid inspired action adventure developed by WayForward, the studio best known for the Shantae series. The game stars an unnamed Prodigium agent who must track down Ahmanet (the mummy) and put a stop to her wicked ways before she lays waste to the earth with her horde monsters. You begin the game equipped with an infinite ammo rifle, but eventually gain access to numerous weapons including a shotgun, flamethrower, and rocket launcher, as well as explosives like grenades and C-4. As you explore each of the themed areas, you earn upgrades, such as faster movement, a higher jump, and the ability to move underwater, which allows you to access new areas in the open world. There are even some hidden weapons and abilities to be found by exploring off the beaten path, as well as health and ammo capacity upgrades. Along the way, you'll fight giant bugs, hordes of undead, and several giant bosses before facing off against Ahmanet herself.

The game is now available for PC via Steam, PS4 via PSN, Xbox One via Microsoft Store, and Switch via eShop. Check our coverage here.
