Mutant Mudds is an indie platformer with retro graphics. The game features five worlds, eight visual themes, 40 ordinary levels and 20 extra levels where you control Max's grandmother Grannie, intended for players who want a higher degree of challenge.
There are three ways to complete a level. The first is to reach the end of a stage, the second to collect all diamonds in a level, and the third method is to find a secret stage within a level and complete it. The game's protagonist is Max. During the game you can pick up various power-ups, including a jet-pack, rocket jumping and a bazooka to break barriers.
