In reality, mushrooms usually grow above the ground or on its food source. The cap-like-umbrella on top of a stem is the common form of a mushroom though there are different classifications of them. Notice that some of the mushrooms are small in size while some are really huge. They have variety of colors and have wide range of usage.

We people often see mushrooms already processed or mixed in our foods, so basically for most of us mushroom is a type of food that we frequently identify in majority of the meal served in every table. But if we were to make a research of their true nature, we will learn that not all of them are edible, be mindful that there are mushrooms which contain poison.

However, the developer of the game Mushroom War gave life to these gilled fungi. The action packed defense game gave us another story of an empire of mushrooms.

The Battle

Once there was a kingdom of mushrooms that started to breakdown because of the unyielding war. Countless of mushrooms died due to the infectious outbreak that exhausts the whole kingdom. As an effect, there was a devilish contemplation among them influencing new breed of mushrooms. Now, the good ones are fighting the evil and there was a never-ending clash between them.

The main task of the players is to help the good mushrooms defend their kingdom from total destruction because of the bad ones and to bring back the long lost peace taken from their realm. To play, simply send out a troop of mushrooms by tapping the mushroom image box at the bottom right of the screen to attack the enemies and to prevent the evil troop from destroying your own kingdom. Players may unlock other mushroom trooper as they progresses the game because the greater the level the tougher the enemies become. Make sure to save weapon points to avoid shortage of warriors.

Note: There is a tutorial in every stage before you start the game.

The Fateful Combat of Rohan

Personally, I am not fond of playing war games but when I saw the app Mushroom War I suddenly got curious. First I would like to insinuate the graphics and music used in the game; it seriously needs improvement because it is a bit dull making the game boring to play with and it is not powerful enough to sustain the interest of the user. Nevertheless, the idea of the app is brilliant with its simple and easy game controls. I’ve been playing the game for straight 3 days now and for first timers I can say that the game is really addicting but once you spend all the diamond points (start-up) in upgrading and unlocking other mushroom troops that is time where the conflict emanates.

For users who don’t intend to pay out for diamond points progressing the game will deliberately slow down. Players will need to succeed and accomplish every level in each of the stage to earn points (equivalent to 6 diamond points per level). Imagine yourself playing the game over and over again just to collect the amount needed to upgrade and unlock troops. It would be best if users will buy points in the market to advance the game because as long as you have enough diamond points the higher the chance to upgrade and unlock powerful mushroom army.

I am certain that the experience is very challenging, I feel impatient at times while playing the game and there were times where I encounter trouble that made me gave up the level. This is one of the average strategy games that I played because huge numbers of enemies attack you instantly which dare you to give your best gameplay ever. I admit that it is hard to defeat the evil foray using only three mushroom heroes such as Fist, Archer, and Shield that is why I am looking forward to expand my own army to be able to bring the mushroom empire into victory.

To end the fateful combat here is nice war quotation from Agatha Christie:

“One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one”.

I have learned the importance of protecting your own ground and for letting good prevail. With that, I realized the value of not giving up and the essence of war for truth. I will keep my flag standing still up until I finish the game and secure that sweet triumph in the end.
