This is by far the best Mushroom Garden ever!
As previously annouced at Mushroom Garden's first anniversary event, Mushroom Garden Deluxe is finally released. Although we're still eagerly anticipating the final season update of Mushroom Garden Seasons, there is no-one stopping me from trying out this latest smash-hit app. Here we go.
・Basics are still the same
The basics of the game is still consistent with the previous versions. Plant the Funghi sprout and harvest the nameko mushroom by swiping the screen.
Overall UI design and actions have been refreshed and could easily tell that a lot of effort have gone into this version.
The biggest update in this version is that the type of the mushroom depends on the type of the raw wood you choose. In the previous versions the most important thing was to bring up the quality of the mushroom growing facility when planting new mushroom.
There are a few additions as well in this new version. Let's check out some of the key items.
・Listen to the old man, Cromwell
An old man makes many requests during the game.
There will be variety of requests. Some are painful, such as "grow more than 3 exceptionally Rare Funghi on the raw wood". But you will be rewarded for fulfilling his wishes.
Current Library was there just to record the Rare Funghi you harvested. In this new version it will be juiced up by picking up more Funghi.
The medals are given to the good crop of Funghi. Collect more medals to enjoy the new features such as Osawari Library in which you get to enjoy the unlimited harvesting.
Backorder is another new feature in this latest version, which will go live in August.
This is an optional feature but you can't miss this one as you have a chance of getting the new raw wood.
Ok, so far so good. One major downside is the slower response of the app. It sometimes runs sluggish on my htc Desire HD. It may have increased the resource requirement a little due to the new features.
And there was a bug where the saved data got lost in the initial release for Android, but now it is fixed.
Anyways, this is something we all have been waiting for. It is recommended to both the current players of Mushroom Garden series and who is new to the series. Let's start harvesting the Funghi! iOS version can be picked up from here.
