You are Dr. Muto, a maniacal and genius mad scientist whose latest experiment has accidentally destroyed his own home planet--all except for his laboratory. The game features a cast of unusual characters including Dr. Muto's sidekick, Janky, and his nemesis, Professor Burnital. By simply sampling some DNA, the doctor can morph into a spider, mouse, gorilla, or whatever creature he sees fit to become. Now he must use his fiendish gadgets and morphing ability to steal organic matter from the neighboring planets in order to rebuild his world. Expand

  1. Fun and funny. [Feb 2003, p.155]
  2. The good doctor turns corners like he's skating around an ice arena. [Feb 2003, p.101]
  3. The game still has quite a few other problems, namely a horrible camera and a general lack of polish.

    While I cannot dismiss its flaws, I can easily ignore it and move on to better examples of this unique form of expression from the early 21st century.
  6. From a stationary position there’s always a very slight pause after you move the stick before he responds, and when he is actually moving there’s a slight level of inertia so you never feel you have full precision of control.

At first it may seem that the game is interesting and funny, but you will soon find out that it is really bland. Overall I would not waste my time with it Expand
