Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is, for better or worse, more of the same – just a bit harder. If you enjoyed the original Mutant Mudds and don’t mind heavy difficulty right out of the gate (and some frustrating boss battles), Super Challenge is for you. If you didn’t enjoy Mutant Mudds, this won’t change your mind. And if you haven’t played the original, you definitely want to start there instead – seriously, this game is hard. In the end, Super Challenge is a brilliant title that, despite its lack of new additions and frustrating bosses, continues the series’ reputation as a shining example of pitch-perfect platforming mechanics and design. If you feel like dying and loving every minute of it, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is for you.

All told, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a worthy sequel to its popular predecessor; it's everything fans loved about the original and more. That being said, describing this game as easy could not be any more inaccurate. If you struggled with the original game, or aren't very good at platformers to begin with, you will probably find very little to enjoy in this game. We give Mutant Mudds Super Challenge a very strong recommendation – it's an incredibly well designed and challenging game that stands as one of the best things to come out of Renegade Kid – but it is certainly not for everybody. This is for super players only.

If you're interested in a modern classic that's both a loving retro homage and a cleverly design platformer, go ahead and give Mutant Mudds Deluxe a go first to see if it's your thing. If so, picking up Super Challenge wouldn't be a bad idea, because while it doesn't wildly alter the formula, it complements the series in an honorable way.

After playing the game for my Mutant Mudds Super Challenge review I highly recommend the game to skillful players. If you played the previous release in the series, then you’re set to give this one a go. If you haven’t, you really should play Mutant Mudds first to get a feel for what you’ll need to overcome in this sequel.

Despite its sometimes overly-challenging gameplay, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge offers the best levels and content the series has seen yet. If you own a 3DS and love platformers, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is pretty much what its name suggests - a more challenging take on the game Mutant Mudds. It may not introduce new concepts or new mechanics or even a new environment but it offers a significant challenge based on the original game and in the end, when the result is this much fun and addictive, it can be forgiven for not breaking any new grounds.

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.

Despite being incredibly hard and, at times, even frustrating, it's also incredibly fun.

Mutant Mudds Super Challenge knocked me to my knees. Kicked me in the face. Then taunted me over and over to retry until eventually besting a level.

Mutant Mudds: Super Challenge is a fundamentally solid platformer with difficult gameplay that will appeal best to hardcore gamers. The levels and challenges are well-designed, testing players’ skill in a number of ways that makes for a tough, satisfying game. It’s not narratively complex nor particularly pretty, but for a gameplay-first experience, this one won’t steer you wrong.

My feelings echo Zach’s full review above: if you’re someone who adored Mutant Mudds, Super Challenge might be up your alley. That’s really the only use case here, though. Newcomers should go play the original, and after that, if the original was too easy for your liking, check out Super Challenge.

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.

For those who like the original game, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is like the ultra hard mode expansion to that. It's an extremely challenging experience that doesn't really build on its predecessor so much as it takes the difficulty of it up to eleven.

If you don't mind brutally unforgiving games and like playing the same stages over and over, you might enjoy Mutant Mudds.
