  • Summary: Eufloria is an ambient game of space exploration and conquest that employs surprising themes of plant growth and bio mechanical evolution. The game allows the player to explore a beautifully realized universe rendered in a style that is both unique and compelling. Eufloria's aesthetics are reminiscent of children's books like "the little prince" and the gameplay is supported by an original ambient soundtrack by Brian Grainger. Gameplay revolves around conquering asteroids in space and using their resources to literally grow and nurture new semi-organic plants and creatures to do the player's bidding. The player is pitched again several teams of AI opponents that all vie for the same resources and can offer fierce opposition. [Steam] Expand

  1. An elegant and beautifully depicted strategy game that feels logical but fresh. Even if it is a little late to bloom. [Christmas 2009, p.110]
  2. Inventive “green” strategy game with procedural generated graphics helps all those who need relieve of stress and relax. [Issue#187]
  3. Eufloria is significantly more expensive than many games of this type, but it will eat into your life more efficiently than most of them. [Christmas 2009, p.114]
  4. Even if the game is charming and fascinating, talking about the gameplay Eufloria isn't able to appeal the player and, worst, to challenge him.
  5. Curious, patient gamers add 20. [Mar 2010, p.81]
  6. Pleasant enough, but it feels like little more than a glorified iPhone game. [Christmas 2009, p.95]
  7. Eufloria is tough, but not impossible, to love. You may have to fight through (or altogether ignore) the campaign mode to get to the good stuff, and even then you may spend more time waiting and micromanaging than you'd like, but I can't possibly deny the strength of Eufloria's most basic design choices.

    I can't understand why critics had so many mixed opinions. To my mind, this is one of those games which is a complete concept, and nothing is to be added, removed, or altered. It has solid style, simple idea, gameplay with great tactical possibilities, and also it can be very addictive. Absolutely great game, and it is even more amazing that two people created such a polished product. Expand

    10.0 Beautiful, simple, strategic, poetic, intelligent... A very good game. No need of strong hardware... I'd like that game editors take in account about my review :) Expand

    this game is quite fun, there may be times of repetitiveness but extra features such as the lazer mine keeps things mixed up and more unpredictable. overall, it's pretty nice Expand

    Great game if you ask me, I don't see why so many critics didn't like it.

    This game is not for everyone. If you enjoy strategy games, that's a start; but truly the only way to know if this game is for you is to try it. So if you feel compelled to purchase it to fill some void in your life, get the DRM-free version outside of Steam. It is of better quality (the graphics in the Steam version are horrid compared to the DRM-free version) and has infinitely better controls than the Steam version. Expand

    I have absolutely no idea what I have just played, but please officially recognise this as a major anti-recommendation! This is clearly some sort of obscure tower defence and attack game that has been applied to some kind of plant! Needless to say it’s one of the utmost boring video games I have ever played in my life! Not being a fan of strategy tower defence games; I didn't have much in way of expectations but the game feels completely empty… I have no idea if that’s the style of game they were going for with some isolation feel, but it just didn't work and the game was just such an empty unfulfilled experience with repetitive actions and nothing really interesting happening!
