Mushroom Men - The Spore Wars [Wii]


Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars is a miniature 3D action/adventure platformer. I say miniature as it is played out from a 3-inch high perspective with some really original characters and themes that make for good eye candy throughout the game. The whole...

Fantastic Visuals and themes ; Excellent overall concept ; Great soundtrack ; Good weapon creation system

Empty combat ; Too simple ; Poor camera implimentation ; Not much replay value

let me say that love using the d-pad to control the camera. if mushroom men was a first person game ( which may have been cooler ) then using the d-pad would be awful. but since it's third person i think that in would be clumsy to use the pointer. it...

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


Trying to invent a new franchise is difficult in any medium. Ambition can be a terrible bedfellow, and drag your work down. In video games that thought has led to more abortive endings, and halfhearted installments all in the name of telling us a...

Excellent level design ; Great music

Pointless minigames ; Repetitive Combat ; Throw away story

With music by Les Claypool, this game really gets its atmosphere right. Crawling around the detritus of a ruined garage, or the intricate machines of the mushroom tribes, I was consistently engrossed by the scenery. With levels full of jumping and...

Solving it

A good platformer will have you run, jump fight and solve puzzles to get through each of its levels. Mushroom Men is no different. The puzzles are fresh and innovative and there is often more than one way to solve them. In one of the earlier levels for...

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars Review


TVG travels to dark damp places to cross examine The Mushroom Men...

Fun building weapons ; Responsive control scheme ; Interesting artwork

No consequence of dying ; Short gameplay time ; Negligible replay value

The satisfying 3D platforming gameplay is crucially let down by some glaring flaws. Mushroom Men has some fantastic ideas in it and lots of genuine character, but the short game length and lack of replay value mean that this game is best suited to...

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


Created by Red Fly, "Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars" for the Nintendo Wii is quickly developing unexpected fame on a global scale and for good reason, too.

Amazing and fresh art design ; Technically impressive graphics for the Nintendo Wii ; Music and sound effects create the perfect atmosphere in combination with the visuals ; Very innovative and fresh concept ; Levels feel very cool once you realize...

Could be a bit longer ; Co-op could have been cool if it were a bit deeper ; Price seems a bit high for such a short game

I recommend that everyone who owns a Nintendo Wii rents this game. If you like it, support Red Fly and buy the game to encourage them to create a sequel or ten. I'd love to see more of this game!

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


While not flawless, Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars is one of the best 3D platformers on the Wii.

Clever sense of humor ; Fantastic music ; Creepy art direction ; Exploring levels is fun and rewarding

Hard-to-control camera ; Short main quest

Meh, I lost all interest after Barbaros' resurrection, the game just turned into an action game instead of a puzzle then...

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


It's not quite a fine truffle, but this fungus isn't half bad.

Cool environments to explore; building new weapons is enjoyable

Bland combat; the camera is difficult to work with

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


In Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars, players set out to save a uniquely weird world, from the point of view of a three-inch-tall walking mushroom. Players guide their fungus hero through nearly a dozen levels of classically styled 3D platforming, with plenty

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars


The humble platformer has become somewhat rare on home consoles in recent years, so it's refreshing to see that one is getting a chance in Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars on Wii. Red Fly Studio's debut, not happy to shine a little light on 3D platformers...

For a first effort on Wii, Red Fly Studio have put forward a great little title. It has a number of things that could be improved upon - camera, combat controls and extended continuance, if you want three Cs - which we'd like to see addressed in future...

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars [Wii] Review


An ichorous green meteorite plummets through the Earth's atmosphere, fracturing and showering the Earth with mysterious green space dust.

Concept of the game; The choice of weapons you can build; A few reasons to play after completion

Un-lockables feel a bit “samey”; Very frustrating on a couple of occasions; Fairly short game


Product Specifications

Time has passed since the 'Rise of the Fungi' and indeed the Amanita and Lepiota societies have brought war to the peaceful Bolete and Morel mushroom tribes. Some among the Mushroom Men believe that the secret to winning the Spore Wars lies in uncovering the facts about the Mushroom's origins. As the Myth states, the mushroom who discovers the truth of their origins is promised the power to change the entire course of evolution, putting the mushroom species at the top of the evolutionary ladder. The tribe that claims this prize can reshape the world any way they see fit. The Amanitas and the Leopiota see the myth as a chance to not only defeat other nations, but also to wipe out all their enemies and put their tribes at the forefront of terrestrial evolution. Even while the Spore War rages, a great quest among all four tribes begins: a race to uncover the truth and reshape the evolutionary course of Earth. Pax, people's Bolete hero, must take on this journey himself. Who will be the first to discover the origin of the Mushroom race? Will the war finally end? As for the humans, they continue to bumble their way through the world completely unaware of the diminutive forces rising against them.
