Mushroom 11 is many things: it's original, it's inventive, it frustrating. It borderlines on genius, with a superbly clever concept but it's also frustrating in the extreme and many players are likely to quit before they see just how good it can be. It's a shame that the game is so uneven and is likely to put many off as if you do persevere, there's a lot to enjoy here, but ultimately, quitting is an entirely forgivable action. The game is a puzzler of sorts, where you must mold an amorphous blob of an organism by pruning its cells. As you do so, new cells will grow and which can then be used to traverse the game world by using them in inventive ways to solve the puzzle-like progression. You'll also need to destroy the various enemies you'll face in a similar fashion, but the main focus is on the puzzles, of which there are various types, including physics-based ones and execution or timing based ones. Mushroom 11 is undeniably original and offers much to the truly dedicated gamer. The puzzles are varied and rarely less than clever in their concept, requiring different skills which really test your ability as a gamer. However, they are also brutally tough, requiring perfect timing and with no degree of forgiveness. The visuals are lovely, with wonderfully designed environments and characters while the music is by Future Sound of London and which contributes much to the game's unique atmosphere. The sheer difficulty though is offputting so it is with reservation that most people should approach this. If you're up to the task, there's much fun to be had, but otherwise, you're likely to kill your computer.
