Eufloria Classic / HD, a trully original RTS game

Eufloria Classic / HD is odd, not the typical game you are used to play. If you are looking to play something else, this is it. Eufloria is a real time strategy game, but you will not really know it until you will start playing it. The game concept is really unique: your entities are spores, trees, flowers and asteroids. It is a game about exploration and conquest, your ultimate goal is to take over the entire world.

It might sound weird, but what I like most is that the usual scenes of destruction and conquest are well hidden by the spectacular and simple game universe. Your ‘soldiers’ are seedlings, ready to destroy other enemy spores and trees or to colonize asteroids. The whole ambiance is relaxing yet fun and the music plays a special role to create this atmosphere.

The game-play is relatively simple to understand at the beginning, but to really master it can take a lot of time. Another thing that I love about this RTS is the random factor: the size, type and positions of the asteroids is always random, when repeating the missions you will not feel that you played them already.

The game was originally designed for PC, but the creators (who are now only updating Eufloria HD) made it available for a lot of platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, PSN, iOS, Android and BlackBerry PlayBook. Yes, you can even play it on your mobile device (tablet or smart-phone), which is totally great. Unfortunately buying the game for a device will not grant you the license for another type of platform. You will not able to synchronize the progress on other devices either, even if you bought all licenses.

Overall Eufloria is an unique and incredibly addictive RTS, like nothing you have seen before, a game which will not loose its value in time. My belief is that the creators should invest more in marketing (looking at the the web site, I think it should have the same design as the game www.eufloria-game.com). This type of game should be played more, especially by the young generation, as it is developing your imagination, reactions and decision making while being under pressure.
