19 Games Like Mutant Mudds

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.

Unfortunately Mutant Mudds is not available on Android, Mac, PS5, Xbox One or Xbox Series. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme:

Mutant Mudds is in These Lists

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Mutant Mudds in the following lists:

Attempt The Impossible

How hard a game is considered to be depends on who is playing it. A three-year-old tackling Zelda will struggle. But equally a new-to-games-parents will find Mutant Mudds quickly gets beyond them. The games in this list are known for being difficult. They wear the difficulty as a badge of honour. "None shall pass," except this with the will, time and belligerence to get good enough at this particular activity to beat the high bar the game sets.

This might be grappling with the flying mechanics in Rocket League, getting endlessly lost trying to find the next guardian in Shadow of the Collosus or coming up with the right tactic to get enough money for the ship you need in Elite. Of course, some of these games can be made easier, but to play them at their best is to ramp up the difficulty to max (crushing on The Last Of Us for example) and let them give you all they've got.
 

Reimagined Retro Classics

Growing up playing video games creates a strong sentimental connection to the sounds, sights and feeling those experiences gave you. Returning to these games in adulthood is a un diversion, but often the experience doesn't live up to the memory.

The games in this list have been recreated (sometimes officially and sometimes unofficially) by developers who love and respect the original while also wanting to update it for modern technology and players.
