Eufloria – The Brief

,

Why..? Why can’t this moment last forever more…

We all love peace. We all love flowers. And we all love a little bit of blood. Eufloria comes with a little bit of each. Based on warring asteroids, players are charged with spreading their seed far and wide. How far can you spread yours?

In an explosion of movement, your pods charge forth into a new world. Landing on the new planet they fire their lasers. They hope to bring down the tree before it can start releasing new defenders. The seeds are too slow. Reinforcements sweep in, forcing your units to flee. Many are lost in the chaos. At least you killed more than you lost.

These are the most violent trees that you will ever see. Depending on the type of planet that they spawn on the fruits of their growth will be variously fast, powerful or tough. Jumping from planet to planet the player aims to wipe out all resistance. Eufloria is a simple game with simple units. But the nature of the planets and the continual nature of unit creation means that the movement of troops and smart target acquisition plays a critical role in a players success.
