Mushroom Mountain

Support this game on itch.io!

A puzzle game where time moves when you do. Find your way up the twisting trails of the mountain.


Plant, destroy, grow, and spread mushrooms to control trail doors. Discover the unique properties of each type as you progress.


Use multi-purpose items to find a way forward. Use the shovel to clear a path, create fertile ground, defend yourself, and more. Push crates to make barriers, bridges, or a safe path through a patch of deadly, poison mushrooms.

2 Paths, 2 Goals

Choose from 2 paths of unique levels with different goals. Fill all plots with common blue mushrooms on the blue path, or with deadly, poisonous red mushrooms on the red path.

Adventure Awaits

Both paths lead to the peak. Discover and solve new challenges until the very end!


The trails aren't easy, but you are empowered. Quickly undo any number of moves or deaths. You are not timed, or punished for mistakes. Reset or skip any puzzle from the menu. You can always backtrack and solve skipped levels. Freely switch between paths with your progress saved for both.


  • 3+ hours of handmade puzzles
  • 50+ levels spread between 2 paths
  • Adventure at the peak
  • Quality of life features such as undo, and skip puzzle
  • Original soundtrack

I got stuck on the 2nd to last or last level? either way was super fun!!
I had some eye openers (I think lvl24 I really enjoyed) and on the last level I was on I tired to do

Dig a rut on the rune tile snd push a box to get through the northern door
but It didnt work and I cried.

There are six rockets!? I've found silver, red, and green so far, I'm just blown away by how many ways that final summit adventure can be solved.

I came back to this and I got all the way through the red trail which was awesome, but then in the final(?) level I can't figure it out?

To do the right side I need to preserve golden shroom and I need 2 shovels to rotate the log enough, but on the left side I'm 1 shovel short of cutting across to the area that opens the door and leads somewhere else, And I need the shovel to make the door open on the deck and another to make a rut to get the worms to eat each other and open the path but then I need another as said. . .
There's that underground water shortcut? but I'm not sure if that is a factor at all it doesn't seem like it. . .
So ya totally stumped! there's the big void edge rooms but I don't think they matter? unless you have 20 shovels and somehow can rotate to carve the path? I mean it has to be solveable but like I'm baffled :o
Good puzzles though! just ya uhhgg...

@SmellyFishstiks Woo red path complete that's awesome! If you are stuck on finding exits on the east side of the peak here are some tips (spoiler):

Firstly you must enter the east side from the red path as you can't cross the lake with the crate from the west side at all. For both of the east exits, you are right you've got to preserve one of the golden mushrooms and then have 2 shovels. Find both shovels in the cabin by crossing to the west side, but don't use them until you cross back over east. So what about these other exist... the void rooms (overlooks) do have secrets! It's a bit of cheap trick but try digging around those and see what might happen.

Good luck and thanks for engaging - hope you are having fun :)!

Amazing Game! I'm having a blast playing the game and it has awesome replay-ability!

I've found 5 out of six rockets. Blue, Red, Silver, Orange and Gold. Only need Green left.

Edit: Just found the green. :) this game is awesome
