A great little game, full of cartoonish violence and great physic-based puzzles.

Mugsters is a game for people who enjoy puzzle games without much flair or fanfare about them. The emphasis is clearly on the puzzles themselves and, despite a few stumbles, Mugsters proves to be an entertaining game that's easy to come back to and somewhat difficult to put down; and with a decent amount of levels, with multiple objectives in each, you'll be spending quite some time getting lost.
Mugsters is a game that contains a good amount of entertainment, and the short length allows for some quick, explosion-based enjoyment.
Mugsters may not hit all the notes of a fast frenetic party game, and it may not have the deepest story to suck you in and keep you playing for months and months. However, the endless variety and sense of curiosity we felt playing, exploring, and blowing stuff up was enough to keep us very, very busy. This is a game with no definite end in sight, and absolutely no boredom to be had.
Mugsters is a decent action puzzle game that will no doubt prove to be satisfying to a certain kind of audience. Goofy, physics-based puzzles, fun multiplayer, and a solid amount of content are definite positives, though these are hamstrung by the poor camera and grindy repetition of the gameplay. We'd give this one a light recommendation, as there's plenty of enjoyment to be found, but this is by no means a must-play.
Mugsters may seem like a very unorthodox mix at first but the truth is, this puzzler set in an open world with elements of platformer and which uses vehicles works better than any of its descriptions would make it seem. While the game has some fluidity problems and there could be more attention to detail on some elements, it has some interesting features and an original level design which will make players satisfied during short gaming sessions.

Despite clear identity issues, Mugsters is an enjoyable puzzle game that lets the player take the reins to complete each level how they like. Its distinct visual style and adept sound design also deserve recognition, despite jarring with the gameplay.
Small games from smaller studious continue to amaze me with their effortless charm and unbound creativity, and Mugsters is easily one of those games.
In the end, it took some patience, but Mugsters turned out to be an overall enjoyable experience that leads to many laughs, frustration, and sighs of relief that will be enjoyed by one and all.
Reinkout Games have created a pretty fun and unique experience with Mugsters. The concept and objectives are simple, yet challenging at times as you'll have to test out every way you can to get to your objectives. It's one of those games that you start playing without any expectations, but end up spending hours on it because it's incredibly fun and addictive. I'm happy that Team17 helped to publish this game on PS4 since it's a blast!
