Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi is a tragedy of colossal proportions. The game has nearly all the elements of a sleeper hit: interesting premise, compelling art design, eclectic sound, an interesting weapon creation system, and some unique gameplay mechanics. Unfortunately, all of that is drowned out by a few critical design mistakes, chief among them being a broken platforming system that leads to far too many senseless deaths. This one design decision robs the game of any fun factor it might otherwise have held, and for that reason cannot be recommended for purchase. It's a lost opportunity for a budding IP.
