Magic Mushrooms by Acornsoft

The game Magic Mushrooms by Acornsoft is an absolute classic and a lot of fun to play; easy in parts and punishingly difficult in others!


Built into the game is a level editor so since I had a bit of spare time today and I have been listening to loads of the RGDS podcast lately, I decided to do an RGDS level!


I called the level Andy gets fright!! and had a lot of fun making it. I did all this on my actual Electron, but I have included the level for download here, so that you can bung it into the game in your favourite Electron emulator and have a go...
