For what it is, Xeodrifter can be a perfect starting point for someone to get into the 2-D adventure genre as a beginner. It is polished and well made, but it is also simple and minimalistic. While not pushing the boundaries of the genre in any significant way, Xeodrifter is a well made game which is sometimes all we need.
At the end of the day, Mutant Mudds is a great tribute to the platformers many of us grew up with. The art style is well done and the difficulty is spot on - it literally feels like it could have been made 20 years ago. The only problem is that games have changed a great deal since then and Mutant Mudds is left feeling stale and boring. If you’re looking to play a platformer the feels harkens back to your childhood, then look no further than Mutant Mudds; otherwise you’re probably better off playing something else.
