There’s something to be said about the bizarre human tendency for mayhem, to break things in bombastic and exciting ways, and Mugsters does a great job of tapping into that chaotic desire. Dropping you onto an island in the midst of an alien invasion, Mugsters is all about creating messes and causing explosions, although it tends to get a little too caught up in the madness for its own good.

Gameplay in Mugsters could be most closely described as a mixture of Grand Theft Auto with puzzle elements. You run around, punch aliens, drive cars into walls, and blow stuff up to progress, which can make for a deliciously chaotic experience.
