M.U.L.E. is a game that was originally released way back when on the Atari 800, in the year 1983. It may not seem like that long ago to some, but it was actually 30 years ago that the game launched, so it’s fitting that a total reboot is coming this week, in the form of M.U.L.E. Returns!

M.U.L.E. is an acronym for multiple use labour element, a device you use to harvest food, collect energy, and of course – mine minerals. Gameplay in M.U.L.E. takes place on a grid, combining turn based battles with real time strategy, as you battle others in an attempt to colonize a distant planet.

This remake is poised as a faithful adaptation of the original game’s rules, and the only differences are the HD graphics, online leaderboards, challenges, and the inclusion of three difficulty levels.

M.U.L.E. Returns via iOS devices next week, on November 25th. The game is set to release on Android next year as well.
