Such an honor!


You've finally landed an invitation to visit the world of the mythical Shroo.

Even better, their Mayor has asked for your assistance as a surveyor!

Will you be able to help?

They want to open their world to tourists.
But before they do, they need some info.
That's where you come in.

MushWhom? - a critical thinking game

They have some questions . . . will you have answers?





You will have the latest technology to observe the shroo from a distance without disturbing them.

You will be able to rotate their world to help observe them as they go about their shroo lives. You will also be able to speed up, go back, or pause time to make more precise observations.

And you will have a handy journal to write down your observations. The journal will be very useful to you in solving the puzzles to help the Mayor.





This once-in-a-lifetime chance will allow you to see the Shroo up-close and in their natural habitat. It sounds like there will be a lot of observation and deduction involved.


This could be challenging.
Good thing you're always keen for a challenge!

Wonderfully clever & tougher than expected!

The journal was a big help. It's worth mentioning that the journal notes carry forth through all levels, as do the Shroo names. 

Looking forward to the upcoming edition. Hopefully there will be more levels???
