M.U.D.S. – Mean Ugly Dirty Sport is a videogame of a sport similar to rugby played by multiple races in a fantasy scenario. The game was produced by Golden Goblins and published by Rainbow Arts in 1990 for Amiga and DOS platforms. Game match style can be compared to the Speedball (video game) series, even if this game has a manager part in which the player can loan money from a bank to purchase players, move to various towns, or place a bet on a match to make money.

Gameplay[edit]

There are two teams with five field players each. Each player has its own skills and race. The aim of the game is to beat the opponent's team by putting a Flonk (a pterodactyl animal) on a chest located across a moat dug on each side of the field. Fighting skills can be quite useful as fights occur regularly between players, and because the opposing team can not finish if it is decimated.
