Fungal Towers are native life forms that act as a localized nervous system for fungus patches. These Towers are massive, jumbled tangles of Mind Worms, fungus, and other strange native life forms. Although the Towers cannot move or attack, they block movement through their terrain and exert a zone of control that can impede units in the area.

When attacked, Fungal Towers receive a 50% bonus due to their ability to co-ordinate and direct native life forms in the area. The size and power of Fungal Towers depends on the amount of fungus adjacent to the Tower. Towers can also generate fungus in nearby empty squares.
