[THIS GAME IS VR ONLY! YOU MUST HAVE VR TO PLAY THIS GAME.] Mirabella is a magical girl who can harness magical energy to grow giant mushrooms that she can jump on. She can also grow tiny mushrooms.
Which genres from categories A and B did you choose?
This game is a tower-defense platformer rhythm game.
How does your game mash those genres?
It is non-violent and feel-good, so the tower defense and platforming are not stereotypical. She grows mushrooms strategically using a limited amount of magic to keep her other mushrooms from being eaten by deceptively cute caterpillars. She plants the mushrooms to act as a wall to slow down the advance of the caterpillars to buy her time to do the rhythm aspect of the game. She grows mushrooms at strategic locations to jump on to catch the magical orbs which drift along in beat with the music. Tower defense to make it easier for her to receive the musical orbs, which may be higher than ground level. She's essentially building her own platformer through the mushroom towers she grows. She gains extra points and magic when she catches a magical orb at its designated position in the music.
