    Mutant Mudds is a polished and enjoyable platformer, but it's also utterly standard and unoriginal. It surely fits in the Nintendo 3DS digital offer, but it can be too basic for the PC audience.

    With just a little more variety thrown in, Mutant Mudds would have been an easy recommend, but as it stands it just doesn’t do enough to differentiate itself in an increasingly saturated indie platformer market.

    Mutant Mudds is a well-executed that falls short in some crucial areas. Given the relatively low price, Mutant Mudds is worth owning if you're seeking a tough platformer with some twists to it. Unfortunately, some may find its high difficulty more frustrating than fun. The old-school graphics work well, with the bold outlines making the far-off gameplay easier to make out, but the music and depth issues often suck enjoyment out of an otherwise breezy experience.

    At the end of the day, Mutant Mudds is a great tribute to the platformers many of us grew up with. The art style is well done and the difficulty is spot on – it literally feels like it could have been made 20 years ago. The only problem is that games have changed a great deal since then and Mutant Mudds is left feeling stale and boring. If you’re looking to play a platformer the feels harkens back to your childhood, then look no further than Mutant Mudds; otherwise you’re probably better off playing something else.

    The game developed by Renegade Kid is a platform firmly rooted in tradition and on a design that fails to go beyond the affectionate homage to an anachronistic conception of the videogame.

    This 2D platformer looks and feels like it was sold on floppies two decades ago. It's fun, but there's no real thought behind this game. [12/2012, p.89]

    Mutant Mudds manages to be one of the craziest games of the year. Unfortunately it is not very good due to the bad soundtrack, navigation and visuals.

    good retro chiptune stuff, i just love the retro feeling, the love for classic games and the nostalgia that makes me feel.

    Do you remember those platformer games for the NES?

    This is one of those, except made in the 21st century.

    The game has solid level design and a large number of short, reasonably clever levels. You must navigate through the environment with nothing but a slow-firing, short-ranged gun and the ablity to jump + hover (though later on, you can unlock some abilities which you can equip one of at any given time which make you somewhat better at platforming). There are 20 levels in the main game, plus 20 bonus mini-levels hidden in those levels, plus an additional 20 post-game levels and 20 bonus post-game mini-levels. The levels only take a few minutes to beat, generally speaking, but some of the later ones are fairly challenging and might require you to keep trying time and again until you beat them. Every level has a single checkpoint in it, which is mostly adequete for the task, though a couple of late-game levels are long enough that dying right before the checkpoint/end of the level is wasting a minute or two of time.

    That being said, there is literally nothing else there; the graphics are okay but nothing to write home about, and the story is a more bare-bones excuse plot than Super Mario Brothers - it is very vague and uninspiring, and I really had no strong feeling about how what I was doing was actually helping in any way, or even what it was I was purportedly trying to accomplish. Consequently, the game has a real feeling of pointlessness around it.

    Still, the game isn't bad; it just isn't great. If you are interested in doing some random platforming, it isn't a bad choice, but honestly, you can do better, and there's no reason to go out of your way to play this particular game.

    This game has a very cute art style.
    And that's the only thing it has going for it. As another user mentioned on here, this game requires players to practically memorize the moves they will make down to the very last pixel, and that in and of itself does not require any real skill, and thus makes this game extremely boring. The movement mechanics also feel too sluggish for my liking.

    To be clear, I have completed everything there is to do in the game. I did it for the achievements and to feel like this game wasn't a complete waste of my money.
