Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a wonderfully difficult game that is so sickeningly wicked, yet I cannot help but play it, regardless of the many deaths my poor little character has endured. The dastardly devious level design demands perfect punctual precision and rewards the skilled with deliciously delirious delight. Okay, I may have gone a little overboard with that last part, but the sense of accomplishment after perfecting a level is extremely satisfying. The game is just that, a very rewarding and challenging platformer for the experienced gamer.

Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a fun game that combines some of the best elements from classic platformers for today's gamer. Every level has been immaculately designed with smart placement of checkpoints to keep the game from becoming repetitive and frustrating--which is very important for a game of this nature. Some of the bosses can be extremely annoying, and the game can become very difficult at times, but overall the game still remains enjoyable in the end. If you are a fan of classic side-scrolling platformers, then you will definitely want to check out Mutant Mudds Super Challenge.

Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is designed specifically for anyone that’s itching for more, and Renegade Kid is successful in providing just that. This isn’t a full on sequel, and that’s okay, but rather a refined and far more difficult Mutant Mudds challenge. New bosses and 20 unlockable characters from popular indie games just serve to make Super Challenge that much more enticing.
Darkstation (Aug 24, 2016)
Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a welcome return to Max’s sprite-based world of tight controls and inventive hover-based platforming. With 40 levels and 100 required collectible coins in each, the amount of playtime depends largely on players’ skills. Intentionally tough but fair, the level design tests even the most hardcore players, and cruel bosses may impede progress indefinitely. Regardless, the challenge is very fulfilling and will leave you wanting more after the credits roll. Beginners beware: play Mutant Mudds first to learn the ropes. Once you’ve mastered that, take on the Super Challenge if you dare.
High-Def Digest (Jul 26, 2016)
While 'Mutant Mudds Super Challenge' loses some of its charm without the stereoscopic 3D ofthe 3DS predecessor, the fantastic platforming is still fully intact on PlayStation 4. It's a highly difficult affair, sometimes tip-toeing into tedium with how many game over screens I looked at, but its still some of the most rewarding platforming available. The Nintendo 3DS version of Renegade Kid's latest love letter to 2D gaming is still king, but this is a fine port even if it lacks some of the added bells and whistles that could've been added.

Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a tough recommendation for those new to the series or the more casual of platforming fans. But for the most hardcore of hardcore retro inspired fans longing for a true challenge, you may have a new favorite on your hands. It doesn’t bring much new to the table but what’s here is so well crafted it’s hard not to appreciate it. Even if you need to buy a new controller afterwards.
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Aug 07, 2016)
At its best, Super Challenge is a commendable and well-sought (if not fully diverse) expansion to Mutant Mudds’ already satisfying take on the less-is-more approach to game design. While the content (both visuals and all-round design) may wind up being mechanically more of the same, it’s the accessibility in its gameplay and enticement to conquer each set of life-ending hazards in each of the four-to-five minute levels that will leave many satisfied. Not just with the success of triumph, but so too with the manner at which the game carves out many of these temporary failures from the player’s side. Whatever platform you prefer, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is at the very least a worthy pick for those who thrive on short-term adrenaline.

For those gamers who loved the old platformers of the SNES era, Mutant Mudds is a great nostalgia trip. But for everyone else it will probably be a waste of time and money, even if it’s only $10.

If you don't mind brutally unforgiving games and like playing the same stages over and over, you might enjoy Mutant Mudds. Personally, that kind of gameplay bores the heck out of me and I can only tolerate it in short bursts.
