Mutant Mudds Review

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.
