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.

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.

Pros:
+ Solid and polished remake of Populous
+ Challenging
+ Long campaign
+ Fun
+ Great GUI - Seriously, probably the best looking GUI I've ever seen, great job here!
+ Relaxing SFX
+ Good looking ambient

Cons:
- 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!

There's a lot here for $10, though the menus take a little getting used to (the "return to title screen" is in the options menu of all places) and some of the game's concepts aren't explained all that well. Forests, for example, generate mana for you when built next to your settlements (though the game doesn't tell you this). After beating the 5th campaign level, you'll unlock a skirmish mode and "the universe". Again, the universe isn't all that well explained, but my best guess is that it allows you to travel to different systems to play different campaigns. There's also passive multiplayer in the sense that you can see other players' legacies...my best guess is that it's all some sort of leaderboard system. Despite some of the confusing mechanics that aren't explained, I feel like this game offers enough to justify the price tag. Fans of "Populous" should be able to jump right in without a problem, though you may want to consult this guide first:

Came looking for a game that would hold up to my memory of Populous and so far I am not disappointed. The updated UI and slightly more pastel pallette are the only differences I can see, the game is a great burst of nostalgia.

Only an hour in and I can already say I feel like I got my money's worth and then some.

Its the same kind of feel I had with Godus, but much, much more refined. The system and upgrades feel natural and its a simple and easy mechanic to get, rewarding the gameplay well.

A good god-game I could say you'll enjoy despite its simpler graphics, and well worth the cost.
