MOSHIMOSHI is a wonderfully bizarre multi-colored top-down shooter, in which you fend off waves of enemies and are rewarded with ‘helpful’ life advice from the Tomato Butt King – such as “never trust a guy in sandals, unless it’s Ghandi” or “don’t grow fat or you will die”.
As well as offering super silly advice, MOSHIMOSHI delivers some innovative gameplay thanks to the way the alternating backgrounds exactly match the color of objects onscreen, effectively making them invisible for brief periods. In each level you (and power-ups) are one color, enemies are another color and enemy projectiles are another color. This means that as the screen changes color, it alternates between making yourself, enemies and enemy projectiles invisible and you have to keep track of where everything is.
The color-based invisibility makes for a surprisingly tough shooter which starts off fairly easy, but will eventually kick your ass. The Tomato Butt King’s life advice is a great incentive for playing on, but if you die, at least you won’t have to listen to that music again!
