New Releases!!!

Mutant Mudds (3DS)

Development studio Renegade Kid is most famous for creating Dementium: the Ward, a survival horror game that was technologically very impressive for the Nintendo DS hardware it was running on. It improved on this technology for their other shooter titles Moon and Dementium II, but their newest release has taken the opposite approach. Mutant Mudds is a downloadable 3DS title that uses a retro style and simplified gameplay mechanics, evoking memories of older SNES shooters. Fortunately, Renegade Kid handles the old school as well as the new.

The story’s premise is simple and explained in about thirty seconds. Strange mud-like aliens have come to Earth, attached to a meteor, and are now running amok. You play the role of a young child, aided by his grandmother, who is able to defeat the Mudds with a water cannon and, strangely, a water-powered jetpack that lets him hover. The game is appropriately light on story, suffice it to say that you need to collect all of the Water Sprites that can be found at the end of each level in order to defeat the Mudds.

  1. I must say I like the look of Mutant Mudds. Then again I’m a sucker for platform games so I would say that lol 😉
    May pick this and Pushmo/Pullblox up at some point when I get some Nintendo credit.
