Game release: “Mushroom 11” (PC)

There are many physics-based puzzle games, but none have a fungus-like creature in a post-apocalyptic world like Untame‘s Mushroom 11.

As far as first impressions go, this looks like LocoRoco with touch-based controls (smartphone port, anyone?), but with more realistic, real-life urban graphics and a more sinister theme. Playing as an organism that can be split parts (later gelling together) to overcome obstacles and even bosses, the game requires both lateral thinking to understand the world’s puzzles and quick reflexes to evade its dangers.

To be honest, I haven’t really been watching this title, and even with the release, I’m a bit sceptic about the gameplay. It might have an electronic soundtrack by The Future Sound of London and also some very detailed backgrounds, but I’m still not sold on the concept, as it already makes me think about clicking too many times in order to fight against physics and with controls, something most of these types of games have problems with.

However, the background story with a post-apocalyptic twist is intriguing, while the boss fights look interesting as well. It remains to be seen if there is enough variety and also originality in the puzzle design to make this a dark alternative to my favorite LocoRoco (however different these games might be) or other physics-based titles.
