Mutant Mudds Demo Coming This Week

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Try before you buy

While Mutant Mudds has been a solid hit on Nintendo's eShop, there are likely still some who are holding out for a demo. Well, your prayers have been answered as Renegade Kid has just announced that a demo version of the game is set to hit the North American 3DS eShop this Thursday.

You can check out the official press release below and if you haven't already, be sure you read our Mutant Mudds review to find out what we thought of the game.

Today, Renegade Kid announced that the demo for Mutant Mudds, the critically acclaimed 12-bit platformer, will be available on March 29, 2012 through the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS™.

Our hero, Max, may be just a 2D sprite, but he can leap into the third dimension by jetting between the background and the foreground playfields with his trusty jetpack in this unique dimensionally-woven experience.

Armed with a heavy-duty water cannon, Max has what he needs to vanquish his long-term nemesis: the Mutant Mudds. Max must blast and hover his way across the soiled landscape to seek out mysterious Water Sprites. Legend says collecting all of the mysterious Water Sprites will wash the filthy Mutant Mudds away for good!

“The Mutant Mudds Demo allows players to see what the game is all about by offering five levels from the full game, including one secret level that is inspired by the Virtual Boy™,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Director at Renegade Kid. “The reception for Mutant Mudds has been incredible from the players and the press. We couldn’t be more excited for new players to experience the Mutant Mudds Demo for themselves.”

Nice, I'm on the fence about this game so a demo would be helpful! Cool how even eShop games get demos now.

(Hates that the Dead or Alive Dimensions demo isn't out in America yet).

Mutant Mudds is a great game,if you don't already have it then i hope the demo makes you buy it i still need to get the last upgrade >.>



Knuckles said:

@Kholdstare The menu doesnt get 120 spaces UNTIL you download soooo many games. I might have had 40 out of the original 60 filled up when my menu extended.



SLiM said:

Looking forward to trying this demo. Could be the deciding factor in finally purchasing this game.



I-U said:

I hope this demo convinces many people to go and buy this golden diamond, something that should've already been done.

I've just finished Mutant Muds at 100% yesterday!
At first I wasn't convinced, I thought it didn't worth it's price, but I was wrong, I enjoyed it so much! I just was confident of the good scores and reviews it has. I agree this demo should have been out from day one or before, but maybe some others who aren't convinced yet will buy it after trying it



motang said:

I bought this game last week, it's awesome! If you are on the fence, download the demo try it out and you will know that it is a fun game!



Alienfish said:

This game is AWESOME!!! Skip the demo and just get it. The music alone is justification enough.



IAmNotWill said:

This would've been helpful last month. You know, before I wasted my money on this game. >_>



Tasuki said:

@Shock_Tart: Not really there are some people like me who wont buy this game until I played a demo. I have been stuck with games that I have bought from the eShop that I wish I played a demo before buying it and wasted my money. I mean think how many sales now the game will get because people will be able to try a demo and from there be comfortable to buy the full version now.

...just bought the game yesterday and i could of played the demo tommorow,wow
still like the game even if im at a hard part



sinalefa said:

This is news I like. All demos are welcome and this game gets raving reviews, so I want to try it. Something like Crush3d was interesting but not enough to take the plunge, so I am glad I could try it out first.

In fact eshop games should be the ones where demos were mandatory, as it is much harder to try the game unless you have a friend who bought it. With that I mean that it is easier to try out retail games at a store. Now where is our Mighty Switch Force demo?



HappyHappy said:

Cool, I've been holding back on buying this game for sometime. Now with the demo at hand I'll know if this is worth buying.



Undead_terror said:

forgot,hope they release dillions wild rolling western demo soon because im not spending big on something i might not like



Popyman said:

Nice, I've wanted to try that game but never felt a standard looking platformer was worth the nine bucks.



I-U said:

Do you own Super Mario 3D Land? If so, you already likely spent more than 9 bucks on a "standard looking" platformer.



Undead_terror said:

i hope future platformers on the eshop will have a level maker and people can share it by wifi or qr codes or even both



Kitsune_Rei said:

Since there are so few demos still, hopefully this will get some more people into the game

If you don't play a game because it's hard, you are NOT FULLY ENJOYING LIFE. Did you know that during the days of the original NES, every game was incredibly hard? But everyone who was a kid during those times looks back on those games fondly, even though they probably never beat them. Because the main point of a game isn't to beat it. The point is to have fun. And games like Mutant Mudds are amazingly fun. A lot of my favorite games of all-time, I've never been able to beat!! But I keep coming back to them year after year. NOTHING adds replay value like difficulty. It should be the #1 thing people look for in a game. Even if you can only beat the 1st level of a good game, it's fun! Enjoy it. Play it over and over.

You know, right before this game came out I had already purchased a 7.99 game and a full cartridge game $30.. So I did not purchase Mutant Mudds even though it's got a huge retro feel (seemingly) and I normally would have downloaded it, I guess I was just looking for a reason NOT to shell out more money. LOL. But upon hearing everything here, and downloading the demo the other day for this (my first Demo download) I have to admit it has grown on me and I will be purchasing it soon! Thanks for all the reviews and impressions, guys.
