The aliens have already invaded in Team17’s Mugsters and now it falls to you to rescue the survivors while causing absolute mayhem for the invaders!
The latest in a string of games to come from Team17’s “Incubation” initiative, Mugsters is a physics-based, action puzzle game in which you must outsmart the alien pursuers by experimenting with all sorts of environmental, hazards, traps, vehicles and the odd exploding barrel all in the name of rescuing the last survivors of each island and bringing them safely home.
Featuring bright and colourful sandbox levels, Mugsters plays out from a top-down perspective and gives you the tools and an arsenal of over 30 vehicles to tackle each level however you see fit. You’ll be facing off against UFO’s, aliens and even the odd wall on your way to saving all the humans. Just remember, it isn’t all about saving humanity, there are also collectibles and a huge variety of other objectives to complete on the way to saving the world.
The game also includes a couch co-op campaign that sees you and a friend take on the invaders (and probably, accidentally each other) together as well as Time-trials that see you attempting to complete each level as quickly as possible in the name of leaderboard glory.
You can grab it right now on Xbox One from the Xbox Store for just £9.99. It is also available on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Make sure you keep an eye out for our review.
