You may have played the Galcon-like Mushroom Wars a couple of years ago. Though it was a very popular strategy game, it also threw a few people off after its conversion from premium to F2P. Now, Mushroom Wars 2 is out on iOS but is it F2P like its previous title?

Mushroom Wars 2 is a real-time strategy game in which you and your band of orange mushrooms have to divide and conquer tribes of green mushrooms (offensive) and purple mushrooms (neutral) to take control of the battlefield. There are four campaign episodes to sink your teeth into, one for each of the Mushroom folk: Shrooms, Proteus, Shii'Moris, and Grims, with 50 missions in each episode.

There's single player and competitive multiplayer with up to four players but on the App Store page you'll notice that below the description we've got a bit of text that says: "The app includes auto-renewing subscription Unlimited War Spirits. The subscription has a 7-day free trial and costs $2.49 per month after the trial period. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase."

I admit I'm not entirely sure where that comes into play as booting up the game, playing through the tutorial, and doing a couple of missions didn’t show any evidence of Unlimited War Spirits, so just be mindful of whatever you're clicking.

Grab Mushroom Wars 2 here on the App Store free-to-play.
