Xenophyte contains rogue-like elements such as random maps, turn based movement, and random real world plants for each seed world. Navigating a gleaner droid is presented like pieces in a board game and involves sneaking around using the environment for cover.
The game does involve real world plants. Real plant attributes are used to identify a plant when enough samples have been gathered. Historic medical uses of these plants also come in useful for aiding a seed world.
Speed runs of a successful game are about 60 minutes. Species data and relics persist between games, find them all.

strange, original, and very interesting ! A mix of sci-fi, discovery, stealth, and environmental care ... It takes a little time to learn its mechanisms, but once mastered, you'll be addicted ! Guaranteed without gems, birds, guns or zombies, but packed with hours of pleasure & a great replayability ... Do i have to add that it is one of my favorite games ??
Fun little hex adventure/gathering game with some aliens and some terrestrial flora. Took me a bit to get the hang of the mechanics, but was interesting enough to keep me hooked while I floundered through it. There's a typo or two, but it still reads far more coherently than most games released nowadays. Have completely drained my battery playing all day!
Fun and unique gameplay. The interface is nicely done and the art is great. The "world" is interesting and the gameplay is much deeper then a simple hex mover. Runs flawlessly on my G4. No complaints. Totally worth the $2.
Your blasted demo was perfectly tantalizing and I had to buy the game. :-P Honestly impressed with the depth, the amount of stuff to balance, and the potential replay. UI could use some minor tweaks and it can be difficult (at first) to remember everything (icon meanings, etc) Back in game I go...
Simple graphics but original.
