Mushroom wars is one of the most fantastic and fun loving strategy game for a touch device. The game design and concept makes it look so simple. You are required to use the troops in your buildings to take over buildings of your opponents. All you have to do is drag, and viola your army is up and running to attack the enemy troops. This simplicity and user-friendliness is what I love about the game. Zillion Whales, the company behind the game, has long been advertising about their upcoming game. They even ran a competition to create a hype. But due to some technical issues, they were unable to launch it in Q4 of 2014. However, they have finally managed to roll out the game.
The new version of the game is not called Mushroom Wars 2 as it was advertised in the game and their campaign, it is called Mushroom Wars Space.
Fortunately this time they have provided 3 different worlds for single player campaigns which will allow users to play even when they don’t have access to internet. The best part of the game which I have always liked is its multiplayer. You can combat up to four players in a battle, with different maps requiring you to employ different strategies. Each map also has different victory objectives, varying from capturing all enemy buildings, to capture those with a star or collecting 300 points before others do.
This time instead of a common leader-board, there are leagues through which you progress. You start with iron league, move to bronze and keep on progressing.
In order to spice things up, they have provided with special powers which you can help you win.
- Frost, it freezes your nearby enemy’s units.
- Sacrifice, destroys troops in target friendly point increase your morale for each sacrificed unit.
- Blood Stone, slightly increases your units attack.
- Reserves, drops 50 soldiers into target friendly point.
There are more spells which get unlocked as you play.
Overall, it is a great game and the more you play it the more you fall in love with it.
