    Review from August 6, 2010

    I've been going through and actually playing some of the games I've purchased, and just finished Mushroom Age.

    I originally demoed this about six months ago. All this time I've been misremembering it as a FROG! This game is actually more of a... *genki thinks how to describe it *... very linear adventure game than anything else. There are no hidden object scenes, per se, though there are times when you need to find items by outline, and once by written list. Mostly you are trying to find needed objects by looking around, behind and under things -
    sometimes behind AND under, etc. Initial objects are very easy to find, but those last few needed items can be HARD to find! Good thing there's a HINT button to help you along!

    There are a lot of mini-games, and they are NON-skippable. None of the minis require fast reflexes - in fact, nothing in the game is timed. The minis ARE solvable if you take the time to puzzle them out, and hints are available. And, if all else fails, there are walkthroughs with the solutions that you can easily find by doing a search

    This game is filled with wit, and you'll find humor in unexpected places. You MUST have the voices turned on, if nothing else You can skip conversations either by clicking through them, or going to the options screen and selecting "Skip Dialogue". I don't recommend passing by the spoken parts since they add so much to the snarky humor of the game, but that's personal choice, of course

    Be forewarned that the writing of the game is irreverent and may be offensive to some, but I found the game to be very funny. You can find a thread on these plot points elsewhere in this part of the forum, so if you're worried, do check.

    Your game is saved at the end of every level - if you leave the game in the middle, you'll have to start that level over again. The nice thing is that once you finish a level, you can go back and replay it at any time! This is a long game, much longer than I expected it to be.

    If you've never tried Mushroom Age, do give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised! Absolutely happy I bought this game
