Spoof and arcade style sports titles like NBA Jam and Mutant Football League are great ways to get non-sports gamers like myself into the genre. Mutant Football League in particular was a favorite of mine back on the Sega Genesis, and yes I even watched the cartoon (don’t judge). Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, the fine folks at Digital Dreams Entertainment LLC have brought MFL back and it is available now as digital download via the PlayStation Store.
“Thanks to our community and a stellar dev team you can now play MFL on console – where it belongs! This game delivers a new experience of fun, arcade style football action for a new generation of gamers, while retaining the spirit of the original game,” said Michael Mendheim, Creative Director.
Mutant Football League features:
- Mutants, Monsters, and More: Choose from 18 blood-thirsty, wisecracking teams including the Skeletal Deadheads, Armored Bruiserbots, Criminal Aliens, Mutated Humans, and Monstrous Orcs.
- Boom-Shacka-What?: Legendary voice-over actor Tim Kitzrow-best known for being the voice behind NBA Jam-provides the game’s ‘colorful’ commentary.
- Gridiron Carnage: Players inflict maximum carnage on the opposition with brass-knuckle punches, steel-toed kicks, hand grenades, clubs, battle axes, chainsaws, and more. Exploding body parts, comically horrific deaths, and blood splatters fuel the MFL visual experience.
- Down ‘n’ Dirty: Use dirty tricks during gameplay to “Bribe the Ref,” throw bombs, or equip weapons to inflict maximum carnage for real game-changing moments!
- Full Season Mode and More: Dive into Exhibition, Practice, and Playoff games, or try and survive the Full Season grind to reach the ultimate showdown: The Mayhem Bowl!
- Killer Stadiums: The 18 unique playfields are filled with diabolical and dangerous traps and hazards, including explosive landmines, buzz saws, toxic moats, lava flows, and crazed fans cheering on their favorite murderous squad.
The game also offers 2 player online and four-player local multiplayer modes and is available for $19.99.
