Do you remember the old days spending your breaks in school and work playing those browser games on game portals? If you remember fondly, one of those was the bizarre concept of Mutilate a Doll 2. This time, it returns as a no flash game - fully playable on your browser and across a host of other devices. Did you miss it?
As strange as the idea is - Mutilate a Doll 2 had a cult following for its general silliness. It does what it says on the tin, being a game where you, well, mutilate a doll. Much to gaming nostalgists excitement, the weird and wonderful sandbox offering is playable once again. So does it hold up with as much fun in the modern age?
These Dolls Were Made for Mutilation
You probably figure by the title that Mutilate a Doll 2 is not your typical sandbox title. All you'll really be doing is finding ways to bash up your ragdoll and compete with yourself on how violent you can tear your doll apart. You could argue it's a game that's made for closet sadists if some of the elements of the game (if you can even call it that) wasn't so comical.
Players are given the option to click on the doll and toss it around the screen, where blood and limbs spread everywhere. Are you done finding ways to traditionally destroy the on-screen character? Well, there are even more options to make the mutilation more dramatic. You can do your job in slow motion, using precision cutting, and inflict bullets wounds.
Oh wait, there's more too! Players are even given a war chest of items like bombs, aerosols, and guns to blow your doll to kingdom come. It's a rollercoaster of excitement until you realize you are enjoying Mutilate a Doll 2 a little too much. Then you start to question its status as a game. Is there really a point to all this?
The answer is no, not really. Yes, the game is a sandbox, but there are no objectives, tasks, or any sort of reward system. Mutilate a Doll 2. Honestly, the game serves as one of those coffee-break games that could pull a few giggles. While it's impressive what a no flash game can do with physics, you'd be surprised if you played this game for more than a few minutes.
All the Tools You'll Need
So there's nothing to gain from Mutilate a Doll 2 - it's a game explosive at the start and wraps up pretty quickly. It's one of those sandboxes where dark humor sits at the centerpiece. It's almost like Carmageddon, where violent, comical deaths sat at the heart of what made the gameplay famous. Except Mutilate a Doll 2 is much more like a simulator than a sandbox - and that thought is kind of disturbing.
Anyway, if you have a few minutes to kill - Mutilate a Doll 2 can be a little fun. At the very least, it's impressive to see what can be done with a browser game these days. It opens up avenues for all sorts of game development - hopefully, something a little more meaningful in the future!
