What is it?
Mushroom Wars takes place in the once peaceful Mushroom Kingdom where neighbors are now fighting each other. Take command of an army and lead your troops to victory as you defeat enemy forces and bring peace to the land.
How does it work?
Mushroom Wars is a real-time strategy game with three buildings: villages make mushroom troops, towers barrage enemy troops, and forges improve the attack and defense of your troops. To attack the enemy, drag from one or more of your buildings with troops to an enemy building. If you have more troops than they do, you win and take over the building. You can pick how many troops you send out at once (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) and can attack multiple buildings at the same time from as many buildings as you have.
One of the things I don’t like about Mushroom Wars is that it’s hard to recover once you’re at a numerical disadvantage. You can’t build more buildings, and while you can convert them from one type to another, doing so uses up some of your troops. Upgrading buildings produces troops faster or fires missiles faster, but doing so uses up some of your troops. It’s possible to make a come-back, but doing so relies more on the enemy not steamrolling you than by using clever tactics.
Is it contagious?
Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced strategy game without the complexity that can get in the way of attacking your enemies and defending your base. The controls are easy to use and the campaign teaches you how to play while increasing the difficulty. With the promise of challenge and multiplayer modes in the future, Mushroom Wars is a fun game you should look into.
