DoraMusbitsYou know, mushrooms are pretty great, but most survival guides would probably caution against eating gooey, strange coloured, cupcake-shaped mushrooms. Then again, I suppose limbless rabbit things can't be choosers. I think Maya Angelou said that. Mushbits is a simple and simply adorable puzzle game about creating paths for rabbits to reach the colour of mushroom that matches them. The catch? They can only cross on platforms that match their colour, and whenever they cross over a normal platform, it changes to the opposite colour beneath them. Click on a rabbit and drag over the floating squares to create a path, then release to watch the rabbit hop merrily along it. You can take as many moves as you like to try to complete each level, though the only way you'll win a gold star will be if you do so within the number of moves in the top-left corner. When locked squares, unchangeable colours, moving platforms, and more are introduced, that's going to be even trickier.

Mushbit is that rare sort of simple, strange, yet gorgeously designed puzzler that can both put a smile on your face and keep you challenged at the same time. Its vibrant style and bouncy soundtrack are great, and the gameplay introduces enough new elements that its straight-forward concept keeps evolving enough to interest you. It's sort of like Sky Garden's crazier, weirdo cousin, though all the extra elements does mean the gameplay isn't quite as streamlined as it could be. There's a lot to be said, however, for a game that isn't afraid to tackle familiar concepts and try to make them seem fresh and different, while at the same time serving it all up in an eye-catching, toe-tapping presentation. Need puzzling to make your day complete? Mushbits will provide with a style and flair all its own.

Interesting game, and the first few levels are quite promising. Just one gripe so far, though: it is absolutely not colourblind-friendly :(
The two distinguished colours look (to me) like blue and... blue? It's great that the incompatible blue colours grey out when you select a bunny, but I feel something more could've been done. Perhaps horizontal and vertical stripes?

Also, is there any kind of visual feedback if a bunny has a puzzle piece? So far it's not much of a problem, but I can imagine things getting trickier.
