This game is outrageous in a good way. It's a very precious hidden gem. I'm really sad it isn't as known as other sh*tty unpolished indie games that do not deserve their fame. For that reason, the very talented developer gave up on creating games due to its low income.
I neved played Populous, albeit, I've seen some gameplays and it does look very similar. I can't tell which one is better, but this one is solid, polished, challenging and fun. If you like Populous I'm sure you'll enjoy Reprisal Universe
I find some features in this indie gem that I haven't found in AAA titles, and you can tell that this game was made with love.
+ Solid and polished remake of Populous
+ Long campaign
+ Great GUI - Seriously, probably the best looking GUI I've ever seen, great job here!
+ Relaxing SFX
+ Good looking ambient
- FPS Limiter (30fps)
- Confusing controls, scrolling isn't too handy
- Tutorial may not be enough
One of the best indies I've ever played, I wish all the indies could be this good. That's an example for sure!
