A review of Return Man 2 – Mud BowlReady! Set! Hut! We now have a spin off to Return Man! Coming back as Return Man 2 – Mud Bowl. This time it’s even muddier than ever.

Gameplay.

Imagine this, Return Man 2 – Mud Bowl is on a tie of 21-21 and has then been thrown to overtime. Your opposing team is just about to kick that ball. Your task is to catch the ball within that yellow circle and then run it downfield to the end-zone without receiving a tackle. But you have to watch out for the huge mud puddles. These will slow your pace! Within the play, you will find items that look like lightning bolts or stars. Try collecting these! These lightning bolts will boost your speed briefly while stars will give additional points to the final scores! Obtain high scores to get your name onto the Leaderboards! On those slippery snowfields, when you must try to stop running, ensure you do account for your slipping. Try timing your stopping-times appropriately and hence still stop just within those yellow circle and not too far ahead of the circle or too far. Keep your eyes on the number of times you fail particular levels. Each time you receive a tackle, you will lose possession. If you lose four possessions, you’ll ultimately lose that game and then have to begin the level all over. Do not worry though, the stage progress is saved – so it isn’t a complete loss.

Controls.

Once you complete a certain level in completing future levels and stages.
