FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells Review

Developer: Brookwood Games

Platform: PC

Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG 

Publisher: Joe Sullivan


FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells is an action farming game developed by Brookwood Games and published by Joe Sullivan. FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells is quite similar to other farming games, such as HeartWood Online or Atomicrops, but it has a unique twist. This game is only available for Windows.

FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells is a single-player roguelite where you cultivate your elemental spells and explore to carry out quests. The world has been set ablaze, and machines have taken over, destroying every bit of nature. You, as a wildflower, are tasked with restoring nature in this world by farming spells, gathering resources, and defeating the machines.


The controls for FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells are quite simple. When starting the game, you go through a tutorial that explains the spell mechanics and basics of the game. I do not quite like that both controller and keyboard settings are shown on the screen at the same time, which can sometimes be annoying. The game can be played with both a controller and keyboard, and either works quite well. There are no noticeable delays. Sometimes, using your spells can be a bit finicky, but overall, the game runs smoothly.

The art style of this game is vibrant and aesthetically pleasing. It has a pixelated look with a retro vibe. The visuals are unique, resembling something out of a children’s fantasy book, which fits well with the theme of the game. I love that the UI of the game is all flowery and has nature-like elements that bring the game to life. The warm colours set it apart from the destroyed world. I love the designs of the NPCs because they’re so cartoonish and make the game much more lively. The soundtrack of the game fits really well with the visuals. It consists of tinkling sound effects and music that blends piano and guitar sounds together. The music almost has a forest-like whimsical tone to it, which suits the flower theme. It seems like a flower-power type of thing. I would 100% say that the sound effects match the visuals really well, bringing the game vibe to life.


This game is quite fun and plays differently from other farming games. One of the main aspects of this game is being able to grow your spells and being able to grow them so that they have various levels. I found the farming of spells to be such a fun idea because you can pair like elements with one another to grow them better/quicker and build your farming base like so. Exploration in the game is decent, but I feel it could be much better. I like it in the sense of being able to put your elemental logic to use. For instance, a fire will burn anything wood-like, so this can open up uncharted areas. The world itself was not so big, which kept the exploration to a well-rounded amount. But besides that, when interacting with NPCs or collecting certain items, there is not much more to it than that. It kept me from wanting to explore as it felt like the same cycle was on repeat after a few plays. The progression, too, was decent. To reach the boss areas, you need to collect a certain number of seeds to grow in a selected plot. From this, you can take on a battle which will progress the story. I would say the game lacks its progression value, as most of the game consists of waiting and collecting the same items over and over again.


When talking about combat, it was balanced really well. It was not too hard to defeat enemies, and because of the various spells you can equip, it allows for better defence against enemies. There’s a lot to this game that works really well with one another. I love the mechanic of being able to get back to the base or that every time you rejoin the game, everything is fully replenished. There is also a buying system in the game where you can talk to one of the NPCs to buy certain seeds from them to complete certain tasks. FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells is a fun game to play, and it’s not a roguelite that’s extremely extensive, which can be a bit less promising for some players.


If you’re looking for a farming roguelite game that revolves around the theme of deforestation, then this game might interest you. It follows a wildflower, who has elemental spells that can be grown or used to defeat various enemies. The game has charming visuals and a beautiful soundtrack to keep players immersed. If you’re looking to grow spells and overcome the dread that took over the world, then be sure to check out FloraMancer: Seeds and Spells.

Overall: 6/10
