M.O.V.I.E. - Gameplay

Gameplay

The game is an arcade adventure which uses an isometric display to portray the action. Movement is achieved by rotating the main character and moving him forward, similar to that of Knightlore and other early examples of the genre. The player can also access a panel of icons which allow Marlow to carry out certain actions such as dropping and taking items, shooting his firearm, punching, throwing an item or talking. The latter is performed using speech-bubbles in which the player can type out words and phrases using the keyboard. Many consider the 2011 Rockstar game L.A. Noire to be heavily influenced by M.O.V.I.E.
