Mutant Mudds is a retro platform video game. It's unusual because it is unforgiving and hard to play so presents a substantial challenge. Also, playing to the 3D feature of the Nintendo 3DS console, the game allows you to jump into the background of the level so your character is tiny. This plays into other more puzzle-based aspects of the game to create a unique and challenging experience.

At the start of every level, you have unlimited ammunition and three lives. The character will lose one life every time he runs into an enemy or any obstacle meant to cause him harm. Some obstacles, however, like spikes and lava, will instantly kill him. This, along with the time limit on the 3DS version makes it a substantial challenge.

Rated PEGI 3 for occasional, very mild violence in a pixelated context. Players can shoot fantasy enemies that flicker when hit and disappear when defeated.

Skill Rating

9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. This is a tough game requiring good timing skills. You need to be willing to fail and try again. Losing progress is part of the process, which means redoing levels with the hope of succeeding is also unavoidable.
