Last week’s Red Stripe Xbox Deal gave us a fine sale on Sonic CD, a game that had never been discounted before. This week’s game has never been a Deal of the Week before, but many of us picked it up during the Black Friday sale last year. That’s right, Mush from Angry Mango will be the new Red Stripe Xbox game starting on Thursday. It’s going on sale for 99 cents, down from $2.99.
Getting mushy with ya feelings
Mush is a bright and original platformer that plays a bit differently from the norm. The titular character gains unique abilities based on his emotions. Draw a smile and becomes so elated that he floats; make him frown and he sinks way down low. By switching between the four emotions as necessary, you’ll help Mush solve puzzles and win a game of hide-and-seek with his friends.
As the description implies, Mush is both innocent and great for kids. But adults will still enjoy the beautiful storybook art style. The characters are all colorful, creative, and endearing. Everything has a flat, paper-textured look. And yet the backgrounds have plenty of depth thanks to excellent use of parallax scrolling. Basically, Mush makes your eyes feel like they’re eating a banana split.
Achievement hunters will want to grab Mush as well, because this is one easy game. You can’t die or lose, just like ilomilo. The only real challenge comes from grabbing all of the collectibles. Most are out in the open, but you’ll probably have to hunt for a few. Check out our full review for more details!
Prepare to turn that frown upside down
Mush is a 24 MB download and runs great on both Windows Phone 7 and 8. It will be on sale for 99 cents for one week only starting Thursday, April 25th. You’ll find it here at the Windows Phone Store. Check back tomorrow when we’ll report on all three Red Stripe Deals!
