Mushroom Wars

September 1, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Simply put – I love this game. It’s so simple yet satisfying. I would liken it to a very very simplified RTS (real time strategy) game. I remember my first time playing Warcraft and Warcraft 2. I loved those games. You create units and send them off to harvest wood or gold. With these supplies you upgrade your buildings and units. You send your units to defeat the opposing forces. Pretty simple wouldn’t you say? Well Mushroom Wars is even simpler. You start with 1 or multiple mushroom “bases”. Each of these bases generates mushroom units at a steady pace. The speed at which the base generates units depends on the level of the base. In order to upgrade your base you sacrifice your units. So in essence your units are your defense/offense as well as your currency. You can send your units to other bases (either neutral or opponent controlled) and if you are lucky enough to defeat the forces, the base becomes yours. As you send the units to other bases, obviously the units in the base you sent them from dwindle. You can choose 100%, 75%, 50%, or 25% of your units to go from one base to the one of your choosing. You can of course divvy your units across all bases but that’s not always the best solution. With this basic tactic of moving units from base to base, you can play defense as well as offense. Learning where to send units and at what time is key to success. You can also convert your bases into towers or forges but I won’t get into these details. You’ll just have to find out on your own.

Does  this simplicity detract from the overall enjoyment of the game? Absolutely not, it actually makes it quite charming. The fast paced action, colorful and crisp graphics, and catchy beats makes this a must have game from the PSN.

Totally a $9.99/9.99

    Oh my. Mushroom Wars looks like (and sounds like) StarCraft 2 ramming into a truck of skittles. It looks AWESOME. And a really nice introduction into an RTS game!
