They say don't judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn't judge this game based on its movie tie-in; with The Mummy Demastered, WayForward may have reached its apex. It deserves to stand on its own as one of the best recent examples of not only a pixel art aesthetic, but as an excellent combination of run 'n gunning, platforming and exploration. The game benefits from paying homage to multiple 16-bit ancestors rather than strictly sticking to its celluloid source material; The Mummy Demastered is a polished, accomplished and satisfying adventure that will entertain more than just Metroidvania fans.

When I get a WayForward Technologies game in my hands, I usually know I'm in for a treat. Except this time around I was really disappointed with what they had to offer. A generic Metroidvania-styled game, based on the failed Mummy reboot and completely devoid of any enjoyment. The gameplay is boring, the story is uninspiring and for the first time ever, I had to force myself to complete a WayForward title.

The Mummy Demastered is a retro inspired game good enough to both whet the nostalgic urges of people of a certain age whilst fulfilling the needs of newcomers alike.

The Mummy Demastered is the perfect kind of filler game between bigger titles; and one that is damn fun to play despite its few shortcomings.

Aside from the simple fact it exists, the biggest surprise about The Mummy Desmastered is that it's actually quite good.

After 2017's "The Mummy" starring Tom Cruise, a game was needed to complete the joy for the fans and WayForward studios surprised them with a 16-bit action game. It's a really exciting experience after all, there are lots of guns to shoot with and lots of different areas to conquer. Although the death mechanism can become boring after a while, but the whole game is a fun journey.

The Mummy Demastered gives Switch owners a Metroidvania style game, while also delivering an experience that brings in some twists of its own. It has a few small warts that hold it back from the classic status of the video game franchises that inspired it, but the fact that can be said for a licensed game in 2017 is nothing short of remarkable.

Considering how video game movie tie-ins sometimes aren't good – especially nowadays when the most we get is a free mobile game tie-in – The Mummy Demastered could've been a disaster.

Even though it does not provide an innovative experience, The Mummy Demastered demonstrates the right way to redeem a classic formula. It's a fun and formidable adventure/action game, albeit a bit shorter than I'd like.

Even in the face of it's most frustrating elements, The Mummy Demastered isn't a bad game. It's just disappointing, more reminiscent of WayForward's okay past licensed work than any of their more transcendent Shantae games.
