*Absolutely not*. It wouldn't be a Space Harvest game without mushrooms!!

The giant mutant mushrooms have got smaller and changed colour.

Compared to the first one, the new game has:

* Vastly better AI - AI players expand their bases, adapt what they're building according to what they can see of your own bases and units. Friendly AI players are no longer a liability.

* Much improved pathing

* Multi-level maps - you can use higher ground to your advantage

* A lot more unit types - the new game has a better balance of different units, each with their own strengths and weaknesses

* You can zoom all the way out to see (almost) the whole map at once, negating the need for a mini-map

* Bigger battles - the game supports up to 5 players (4 AI players, plus one human player) with 100s of units on screen

* Custom game mode - once you finish the campaign, you can play games against AI teams where you control the rules (e.g. what units each team can build, cash they start with, AI difficulty etc)

* Completely new engine built from the ground up for iPad - it supports real-time 3d-lighting effects, even on older devices, and the maps in the game are a lot more graphically complex than the first game. iPad 4 and above support full-resolution retina graphics too.

* Awesome music

* 3 difficulty levels for each campaign mission - a lot of people found the first game too difficult, so you can adjust the difficulty if you get stuck

* Cute robots to help you build things!

There's probably lots more, but that's all I can think of for now.
