An exhilarating puzzle game chock-full of Funghis!

Funghi, the detective sidekick mushroom, is now a puzzle game on the Nintendo Switch!

The rules are simple: just gather up three Funghi blocks and make them disappear. The blocks you clear make Funghis sprout on the log, and they get harvested when the log is full. Simple and fun!

You can play with either the touch screen or the controller!

Learn everything you need in the tutorial!

The game comes with a tutorial mode for people playing for the first time. Here, you can learn ways to clear blocks that don’t involve just lining up three of them, allowing you to enjoy even more techniques.

By learning techniques such as the Line Harvest, where you clear all blocks in a line, or Area Harvest, where you harvest all of the Funghis around an area, you can aim for higher scores.

Enjoy exciting versus play!

This game can be played by two people with a single Joy-Con controller, allowing you to enjoy an exciting split-screen battle on a single Switch.

During versus mode, you can deal damage to your opponents with chains, and sabotage their harvesting efforts by sending mold at them.

By using the Switch’s tabletop mode, you can enjoy a match with someone wherever you’d like, be it at a party or on a trip.
