What does the "high density" option do?

This is for the pre-release version of Eufloria (a pdf comes with the game and mentions this).

If you have a high density display - a retina display in other words - it adjusts a few things to account for the smaller pixel size.

Also, for Eufloria classic you can find a manual in your installation directory. :-)

I purchased the Mac version as part of the HIB, and I didn't see anything in the package that described this setting.

As per the thread, there isn't a manual for the pre-release but the setting is as described here. On retina displays, i.e. high density ones (retina is an apple term I think), we resize some UI and game elements as otherwise they'd be too small simply due to the pixel density.

Do I have the classic or the HD? I'm still not sure.

HD. Probably both actually.

The classic version is the steam version, or the one bought on pc before the humble bundle. It doesn't even have that option (it's really quite different; give it a go).

You're on a mac so you can only have the HD version.
