You can play other games? if not the problem is your drive, if yes, you may exchange your new disk.

Droped a psp in a mud puddle psp works but the game dont is there anyway how I can clean the game without messing it up worse then what it already is

since the umd is solid plastic, you can run it under water to rinse it off. just be sure it dries completely before putting it back into your system. also, wipe off any spots on the disc with a SOFT cloth, like a microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses. you should be able to slide over the umd cover to get access to the disc surface.

Psp umd

Propably you have to change your laser inside the psp. You can buy parts on youtube and repair it by your self, if you know how (opening the psp woids the warranty). Or you can just give it to a service near you that repair such things.
