Play OverviewPlay Overview

Muck (2021) is a survival adventure game where you are trapped on an island and must survive as many days as possible by using the resources you find. Played alone, or with friends, you work hard to have the defences you need before night falls.

Play involves exploring the island to collect resources and craft tools, weapons, clothing and armor. As you kill enemies that drop coins that are used to open chests with rare and character-changing fun items. But once night falls, mysterious enemies appear from the shadows. Using the resources and items you've crafted during the day, you must try and make it through the night.

As you progress you steadily get more upgrades and equipment. This means you are stronger in attacks and defence and take on some of the larger enemies and boss encounters with creatures like Big Chunk.

The result is a game a little like Minecraft, but with a greater focus on fantasy adventure like Zelda Breath of the Wild.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Muck 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 2 years ago.
