Space Flowers is an intra-galactic tradewars game. You start with a basic starship at a friendly starbase. You can buy a variety of different flowers to sell elsewhere and then begin exploring the galaxy looking for other starbases to trade with. Some are friendly and will trade with you immediately. Some are hostile and will attack your ship if you enter their systems. Others are more or less neutral and will react based on your actions. You can also attack hostile starbases and engage in combat with them to gain experience and valuable items in the debris you salvage from their destroyed ships. Destroy enough enemy ships and the system will surrender to you and become one of your allies. You can also peacefully ally with star systems just by trading with them enough. Every transaction you make with them will raise your influence with them until they eventually ally with you.
There are also specialty starbases you can find that will sell parts to upgrade your starship. You can upgrade your engines, weapons, shields, armor and firing control. As you gain experience, you will find out an alien presence is starting to invade and take over starbases in the galaxy. You will need to deal with this threat as well.
The ultimate goal is to ally yourself with every starbase in the galaxy through trade or warfare. Use skill and cunning to find the most profitable trade routes, deliver specialty goods for additional profits, and accumulate funds to upgrade your ship to advance in rank from a lowly bud to the ultimate Star Flower! Whether you advance peacefully or through warfare (or a little of both) is entirely up to you.
