Mushroom Wars is a game about tiny, Smurf-like creatures who just want to retake their home from other tiny, Smurf-like creatures (who very obviously took Darth Vader as a style inspiration) who took over their land. Perhaps this civil war could have been solved by some peaceful diplomacy. However, we will never know how that would have played out because war has been declared.
The gameplay is similar to that of Tentacle Wars, where both you and the enemy start out with a few outposts inhabited by a certain number of soldiers. The aim is to strategize in such a manner that your soldiers take over the enemy mushrooms by majority. There are new types of buildings and more layers added to the game as you progress through the levels. While Tentacle Wars had a macabre feel, Mushroom Wars Space is a much happier game. The villages are vast and crowded with tiny mushrooms and Smurf people. The level maps are beautifully designed and complete the polished look of this brilliant little game.
The game has one of the best soundtracks in the history of mobile games ever. Going with the space theme, the soundtrack has elements of quiet electronica mixed with simpler beats and eerie voices speaking about civilizations and other indiscernible things. There is also the hint of a tabla. There is also the multiplayer option where you can battle with players from around the globe. Currently, there are three levels with new ones promised soon. There is no unnecessary complication in the form of in-app purchases. The only thing you can buy are acorns in order to unlock the other planets if you want to skip the minimum requirements. There are no ads whatsoever. That is yet another reason why Mushroom Wars: Space! should be on your phone or tablet. Don’t do drugs, do shrooms (just the ones in this game, mind).
