Following in the wake of Haven: Call of the King, Midway has produced another bizarre platformer that goes by the name of Doctor Muto. But this troublesome character is no ordinary Doctor and this time he's got himself into a tiny spot of bother.
An obviously mad scientist, Doctor Muto's latest experiment has again backfired, but this time the effects are more adverse than he could ever imagine... he's destroyed his home planet! And in a twist of irony, the only thing to survive was his very own laboratory. Now, assuming control of the hapless genius you must use your gadgets and unique morphing ability to steal organic matter from neighbouring planets in order to rebuild your home world.
Doctor Muto, regardless of all its madness, is a free roaming 3D-platform game. Set in a stylised universe full of fiendish puzzles, mind-bending devices, freakish monstrosities, and twisted comedy, you must use your abilities to progress through each of the environments. By simply sampling DNA, the doctor will be able to morph into a spider, mouse, gorilla or other creature, and use their natural abilities to solve all manner of platform puzzles and defeat myriad nastiness.
Featuring a cast of unusual characters including Doctor Muto's sidekick Janky, and his nemesis Professor Burnital, Midway's latest platform offering certainly has one of the most original concepts we've seen for a long time.
