You've crash-landed in Central America. Your girlfriend has been abducted, and angry men are trying to kill you. Welcome to Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death, which is this week's new GeForce NOW release on NVIDIA SHIELD.
This is just the sort of scenario fans of action games—and protagonist Marlow Briggs—relish. Alone, outgunned, outnumbered…no problem! Heck, Marlow’s not even phased by the ancient Mayan Death Mask he’s bound to that won't stop talking.
And that may be because said mask grants him an array of magic abilities that will help him destroy literally hundreds of enemies himself, while delivering a seemingly endless assortment of one-liners meant to poke fun at our favorite action movies and heroes.
The blistering action, pyrotechnics, humor and even musical score are all quite intentionally "over the top". As you progress through the game your weapons get more insanely powerful, your enemies become bigger and tougher, and the explosions continue to multiply.
Your simple quest to rescue your girl and exact revenge on her abductors turns into an all-out war against evil to save the entire planet. Oh, and you'll uncover the ancient, and deadly, secrets of the Mayans along the way.
If you enjoy action games you should give Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death a try—we bet "you’ll be back" for more.
