  • 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 areEufloria 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. An easy-to-play casual RTS. Starts a bit slow but the stylised graphics and immersive sound keep you hooked. [Jan 2010, p.81]
  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.

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

It's based on its look and feel, on its art and its music. A slow and enjoyable experience I'm suggesting to anybody interested in the like. If you are not interested in this elements tough you will probably be disappointed, as this is not trying to be a strategy game with a particular art style, it's about the style first and strategy later.

    This is a decent game for me. While the start got me sucked in with the thought of quick-paced action in a very strategic way. I was however This is a decent game for me. While the start got me sucked in with the thought of quick-paced action in a very strategic way. I was however disappointed as it turned into a 30 second rush to get as many unclaimed rocks, then a 10 minute wait to build up a ludicrous force, then 2 minutes for a nice steamrolling. If you want a good game though, Phage Wars on Armor games will get you the same basics, along with a much faster paced level set. TL;DR VERSION: Decent game, but I have seen flash games with the same or better capabilities. Expand

    I have absolutely no idea what I have just played, but please officially recognise this as a major anti-recommendation! This is clearly someI 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!
