About This Game

At first they came from the skies, and we repelled them with hired spaceships on a shoestring budget! Now they’re back, and they’re sending their ground troops to destroy our bases – thirty-ton monsters with glowing eyes and slavering jaws! And we still don’t have any money!
Quickly assemble a defensive position using blaster turrets, upgrades, tiny battledroids, barricades, mines, tangleweb, whilst obtaining the necessary funds by mining nearby resources as the relentless march of the Titans approaches the base. Research new technology and buildings as you defend the Earth bases throughout the solar system from the Titan onslaught. This is the ultimate mash-up of real-time strategy and tower defense.

Key Features:

  • 50 level campaign mode across Earth, Moon, Mars, Saturn and Titan itself
  • 29 buildings and 40 technologies to research
  • Relaxing Endless game mode
  • Hectic Survival game mode with online hiscores

It's tough to recommend this game unless you really REALLY like tower defense games.

Going through my backlog of games, I started playing Revenge of the Titans which I got from a Humble Bundle years ago. At first, it was kind of neat. The art style was simple and kind of cool, the music was decent (in the end levels in particular, there's this really good ambient track), there was a little bit of humour in the campaign, and it seemed like there would be a lot of variation in enemies and weapons as you level up. But several hours in and the gameplay flaws really began to show.

- There are maybe 3 very distinct enemy types. There are tons of enemies in this game, but they pretty much vary only by things like "oh, this guy moves faster" or "oh, this guy has more armor" etc.
- Level after level, the grind shows itself. Same gameplay, pretty much every single level. (Other than when you need to use the Capacitor, a specific weapon used for a specific enemy type.) There's never any variation, or anything that makes you scratch your head and plan something out. And the art of each level pretty much varies only by colour.
- There's loads of weapons and gadgets to unlock and use, but you'll most likely end up using the same combination of weapons for every single level once available.
- Campaign is started on the hardest setting by default...and it's mind numbingly easy.

Most of my play time was spent grinding for the last few achievements (which was honestly the one thing that kept me going.) So, I'd give it a 4.5/10. It is a decent game for being so cheap (especially from a Humble Bundle) but again, only if you are desparately wanting some sort of RTS/TD game can I give a full recommendation. The developers also seem really nice too, and are active on the discussion forums, which is a plus.

Tower defence, quaint voxel style art, and a whole lot of upgrades that do nothing.

Each level lasts about a minute, depending on if you respecced into the right upgrades or not. There's not really any placement strategy, as the monsters just kinda wander from where they spawn towards your base. There are tons of upgrades that you unlock one at a time, and you can respec before any given level to change up your weaponry. Once you find the right combo of upgrades that actually do anything you basically stick with that for every level after that until the game throws a wildcard at you and you need to respec the entire tree.

That said... Theres nothing particularly bad about this game. Everything works as it should. The design is all there, but theres nothing particularly great about any of it.

I don't dislike it, I just don't reccomend it.

Not very good.

It has a cool vibe but pretty poor execution on what could have been a cult classic.

This game looked cool to me because I like tower defense games. About 2 hours into the game I can't motivate myself to continue. There is no real challenge and the upgrade system seems meaningless. This game is not totally bad but it feels very mediocre to me. With so many more polished and fun tower defense games on Steam, there is no real incentive to play this. Definitely not worth the full price.

The thing that sets this game apart from other tower defense games is the fact that matches last 1-2 mins and take place on open ground. If you've played tower defense games before, you already understand that it's not a very good idea. And, indeed, it doesn't work out, despite a few nice touches here and there.
