Today I played Eufloria HD as part of the Steam Spring Cleaning Event "Blast from the Past": "Play [one of] the first game[s] you added to your Steam account. If you completed this task last year, play the second game on your Steam account."* Looking at a thread detailing the changes from Eufloria to Eufloria HD, I decided to classify Eufloria HD (PC) (2014) under Eufloria (PC) (2009).

Steam Game Time: 41 minutes

*There was a choice of five titles: Iron Grip: Warlord, Eufloria, Doc Clock, VVVVVV, and Eufloria HD.



Thoughts:
Pros:
+ Relaxing music; relaxing gameplay
+ The basics of the game are spread across several levels; easy to digest game mechanics
+ Calming and beautiful art style

Neutral:
~ The game doesn't allow for selecting which plants to send from a planet (when a planet has plants which originated from various planets); the player must take this into account and behave accordingly (when trying to be efficient).

Summary:
This game is surprisingly relaxing considering the primary objective is to colonize other planets.
