About This Game

Thallos - Once a mighty warrior and leader -
is now forgotten and cast aside.
His tribes scattered and his totems lost.

Ananke with her brothers Erebus and Tartarus have risen against him,
jealous of the favour their parents had shown him.

Left for dead in exile, Thallos survived using the land around him.
Although weak he knew his moment to restore his people
and recover his totems would come.
Biding his time, waiting.

And that moment was before him,
that moment was now …


Help Thallos guide and rescue his people. Using special totem powers you can control nature itself unleashing its full fury on anyone that stands in your way. As you explore distant lands you must gather your lost tribes and Amulets. But be warned, other tribes may not take too kindly to your intentions and will put up a fight!

Created in homage to Populous, Reprisal's Universe spans over 34 planets and 184 islands pitting you against 3 other tribes - each with their own aggression traits. Learn to control the 15 totem powers, upgrading them as you explore and harness the 5 Wonder totems for maximum effect. In this Universe you won't be alone, other explorers will be present helping you to uncover items and leaving their own legacies on islands you will explore.

Lightweight, but dangerously absorbing.

The really long tutorial might be a turn-off for some, but past that you'll find a rather neat universe exploration mode that allows you to leave a mark for the next generations of players to discover.

For heaven's sake, if you loved Bullfrog's Populous series throughout the 1990s you absolutely must try this. It's a faithful adaptation of the original; essentially a fan remake for modern PCs.

Give it a whirl, it's on sale at 90% off (until 16th Nov), or try an early version for free online: http://www.reprisaluniverse.com/site/playreprisal/

I am the god of flatness. Both the sea and the mountains are an abomination. My people worship me because they know I will bring prosperity. Fertility in flatness. My people are a people of order. They spread my cities of flatness across every corner of every world and I flatten the way for them. Soon the entire universe will be my shade of blue-grey.

Picked this up because of the parallels to Populous. Looked really fun to play, but the controls are awful compared to any modern RTS, even for an indie game.

-Scroll speed is extremely slow
-Screen size too small/can't zoom out
-Base building is counter-intuitive (you have a choice between building and attacking. That's it.)
-You need to have a flat area to have a base expand, but the terraforming tool is so hard to use when shaping a mountainous region. Just give me something that says "MAKE THIS PART FLAT"
-No hotkeys
-After using a spell/waypoint, the cursor goes back to terrraforming immediately, making you accidentally terraform all the time.

Take Populous god-game design and merge it with the artistic pixel graphics of a Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery. I am very happy I picked up this little gem.

Pros:
Slick modern retro design
Solid gameplay
Tiny game (space wise - takes up less than 200mb)
Nice touch of story
Good sound effects
Fun
