Mutoid Man — Smash TV (Williams, Arcades, 1990)



Mutoid Man is another poster-boy of the retro shooter era. His status as a hard-as-nails adversary is legendary amongst old school gamers, who share tales about the gruelling battle like a gaggle of geriatric war heroes. However, like most wars, the casualties sustained (particularly to our wallets) rendered the victory pointless.

Don’t get us wrong; we love a good challenge as much as the next gamer, but Mutoid Man took things to a ridiculous extreme. The amount of pocket-shrapnel he amassed over the years is enough to rival most countries’ GDPs (there’s probably a ‘Mr. Shrapnel’ joke in there somewhere, but we’ll leave that to the über-dorks). Call us big girls’ blouses if you must, but Mutoid Man was simply too tough for mere mortals to handle.
