Mutant Mudds is a retro-style platform game, with wonderfully pixelated visuals being given an up-to-date twist with the 3D visual effect of the 3DS. It's a striking mix of the old and new and promises a great collection of characters and fun.
The hero can move between the background and the foreground through use of his backpack and has a hefty water cannon to fight off enemies, across 60 different levels. The game is filled with references to past classic games and a players can compare their skills with online leader-boards.
By reputation, Mutant Mudds is a pretty difficult game, in line with the recent trend for games offering a harder challenge, the way people remember games being difficult in "the old days". All in all, Mutant Mudds promises a step back into gaming memories presented on a sweetened bed of new technology.
Recently, Mutant Mudds has received an update of FREE downloadable content, with 20 additional levels. These levels require the use of the un-lockable "Granny" character and has a visual style inspired by the old CGA graphics style (think stylish blue, white and purple graphics!).
Mutant Mudds and the free DLC are now available on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS.
