In MUDS (Mean Ugly Dirty Sport) the player controls a club in one of the dirtiest sports on the continent Ghould. Five combatants from each team try to score as many of the five available Flonks (kind of a fish) by throwing or dunking it into a bin on the enemy side of the field. But beware the channel in front of the bin which is inhabited by a deadly sea creature.
Since the game allows for a lot of fouls and even melees and the referee kills everyone who touches him the participants tend to die quickly. So a fresh stream of "volunteers" has to be "recruited" from the local slave market. Surviving players increase their skills and can become real heroes.
In the management mode the player can bet on his team or bribe other players, the referee or even the Flonk.
