Back To The Fore Play: Mutant Mudds

They don't own a single book

Mutant Mudds is available through the eShop on Nintendo’s extra-dimensional DS but on August 30th it’ll also be available on PC, but that doesn’t mean you’ll need to have a third dimension plugged into your screen-socket in order to enjoy the jetpacking and platforming. The game stars (at least this is my interpretation) Commander Keen’s geekier brother, Kenneth Keen, and when the world is invaded by alien blobs, he pops on a jetpack, loads up a ray gun and sets off to save the world. Kill ’em all, Kenneth! There are points at which Kenneth can switch between the fore and rear of levels, jumping into the background, which is not simply decorative. Along with having a jetpack, that’s his thing. It’s apparently quite a delight and our chums at Eurogamer compared it favourably to Thai street food. PC version has 20 new levels and there’s a trailer below.

When I first watched that, I was listening to Geoff Barrow’s Mega-City One album (Spotify link) and for a moment I thought the Dreddliness of it all had suddenly become rather jaunty but, no, I just hadn’t realised that the video was playing in a concealed tab. I reckon the soundtrack to the new Dredd movie should be at least partly like the Mudds’ music though.
