So, I thought I'd put this out there to Revenge of the Titans fans:

The Puppygames Patreon

A surprisingly large number of players have asked us about a multiplayer version of Revenge of the Titans. The problem is that when you start solving the individual problems in multiplayer with the game design, you gradually end up, bit by bit, inventing a completely different game.

Battledroid is that game.

We've already spent over a year on Battledroid but we don't have the funds to finish it - it's going to take us another year. If you'd like to help us out making Battledroid, please spare a buck or two for us every month.

Battledroid is a free game and will always be totally free.

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

This game looked like it would be fun, but the decision to make this a click-fest has ruined the fun for me. Some people may enjoy a game where you are frantically jumping around the map, but to me tower defense is about planning defenses, not lighting reflexes.

The single biggest problem is that you can't build while paused and only have a few seconds at the beginning of the mission to build your refineries and set up your defenses before the enemies start coming, ready or not. The enemies don't follow consistent paths and can easily destroy your towers, which means that in the mad rush to get towers down they won't be placed optimally and will probably be destroyed, wasting money that comes all too slowly from refineries.

This snowballs with the fact that your finances carry between missions, so if you spent all your money and barely passed a difficult mission, you'll be broke at the beginning of the next mission. This punishes the player for not playing perfectly and makes some of the later missions basically impossible because you didn't play the early game just right. The difficulty also scales with your finances so you have to be in the sweet spot of enough money to build enough towers but not too much money that your get overwhelmed before you know what is going on.

At least the game isn't as clicky and punishing as it used to be, in earlier versions you had to manually click on refineries to harvest them and turrets to reload them and the tech tree used to be yet another source of punishment to inexperienced players so there might be some hope for this game, but at this point I still don't recommend it unless you like a rather punishing, frantic click-fest.

Very interesting game-play, keeps you thinking about not just the approaching enemies but also your resource supply and income which you need this to build. The game gets challenging but you are also rewarded unlockable tower weapons, defence buildings and also repair units to make life a bit easier. That also depends on how one uses these properly by placing them in the most effective areas to get the maximum efficiency. The enemies also do not follow a fixed path and adapt to the situation. Regrettably, the game is flawed in quite a few ways. Mainly, lack of variation. All enemies look pretty much the same, and behave identically. Overall this game is worth a shot but it might not interest some players.

At first, the game looks like your regular TD, with towers and upgrades and such, but as you progress through the game, you realize that there is alot of ♥♥♥♥ you need to research that you didn't, which can create some pretty hectic battles. There are a few rules that are always constant, but there are major gamechangers as you move from planet to planet. If a map is too hard on campaign mode, you can generate a different map in less than a second. The game promises an intense, blitzkrieg set of battles that will keep you sweating, and many different ways of dispatching the hordes of titans. Like manually zapping you enemies? buy capacitors. Want your buildings to do the work? Buy defenses. Feel like taking the fight to them? Droid and tank factories. In short:
Unique gameplay
Brutaly fast and decisive combat
Varying degrees of difficulty.
666/10

It's more like a rts with no mobile units in your arsenal rather than a tower defense with actual planning phase. Game gives you little to no time to prepare and expects you to be constantly on the lookout up to eigh sides of the map after randomly creating your base on an open spot. The problem is, map control is bad so you have to scroll to all sides placing stuff and repeat it hundred times so it gets boring quickly. And although repick option before every level on your tech tree is nice, it gets almost mandatory to repick and redesign everything half game. Won't really recommend for that price.

Fantastic tower defense game. Currently available for £6.99, which is an absolute steal for the amount of gameplay you will get from this great game. With a lovely retro feel to the graphics and audio but with clever games design throughout you won't be disappointed. With many ways to play through the campaign by following different tech trees this game will offer you 20+ hours of gameplay.

Check it out :)

Tower defense game with the nice mechanic of being able to put the towers anywhere. Cool artwork, music, and upgrade system. Like most tower defense games, there is alot of content here. My only freakin' problem is that I hit a hard wall and got stuck; I cannot get past the level I am on. I am not new to tower defense games (I own and have finished all the big ones).

Difficulty just ramped up too quickly and ruined my experience. Unfortunatley I would not recommend.

Why are there paths if they walk nearly directly from the spawn to your base and kill you?
Why does every level feel the same?
Why do half my turrets feel the same?

Why did I pay money for this...

Revenge of the titans is a beautifully simplistic game. It brings everything you could ask for from a "Tower defence" type game, it doesn't try to pack itself full of unnecessary crap! This inide game is a joy to play quickly great buy for the price!

Not really the tower defence I was looking for, great artwork nonetheless.

Simply too difficult too soon.

The art style is FANTASTIC. That is the only positive game element to be had here. Save your money and stay away, regardless of the pandering reviews from what I can only assume are people who have never played tower defense games before. I mean hell, if it wasn't for the art style this thing wouldn't even survive on Miniclip.

The game feels like a continuing list of bad design choices, a case study in what not to do in a tower defense time. When I complain I feel like a lecturer in basic game design: "encourage strategic play", "present consistent rules for your game world", or maybe "release without game crippling bugs and advancement locks". It's bad enough now, but be greatful you weren't playing when the campaign tech tree was locked and you'd be forced to menu-delete a game when an armored enemy type showed up an you had no units capable of damaging it.

Almost every mistake (as I'm coming to call them, because I honestly don't think any of them were actually thought through properly), is at once trivially annoying and long term game breaking. Manually resetting and time consumingly repicking your tech tree to deal with new enemy types every level may seem simply irritating, but gradually emerges into an overall expectation that you pick the "right" tech tree that enables victory, and all others will fail by default. Having to painfully micromanage your reloads is grating, and eventually ensures that every strategy will be limited to your clicktimes and not your strategy, dooming any kind of open-world defense. And the rediculous armor and repulsion systems vex you piece by piece as your weapons and equipment become obsolete, before finally running the final, game destroying flaw: you will not lose when your defenses are overwhelmed, you will lose when the charming little boxlike enemies have countered every possible defense and your entire list of defensive options have become obsolete.

It's like the equiptment they give you is just a taunt of what your strategy could have been: oh hey, here's a rapid fire turret. Too bad it does no damage to enemies after level 4, when they all have armor. Hey, check out these repulsion buildings to herd the enemy into chokepoints. Sucks that every other enemy after level 6 has become "intelligent" and will simply run up and eat them. Laser weapons? Armor reflects them - useless. Slowing razor field units? Can't be used with the anti-armor explosive guns, which destroy all your own buildings, including your own defenses, because apparently future scientists drink too much coffee to understand friend-foe ID. Similarly, saving up money in the campaign feels rewarding until you find out that the game raises the difficulty with your cash level and thus it's advantagous to avoid any kind of strategic spending. RotT plays like a cod game, where every interesting idea gets thrown out within ten minutes because it happens to be too fun and interesting to keep using.

I like playing tower defense games because of the evolution of your goals and the resource management involved. I'm not sure I like playing them when resource management is a menial clusterf*** and the evolution of methods is only happening in the enemy forces. I've never had a tower defense game where I've felt so much like *I* was the computer, and the enemy forces were actually the human, getting to play adaptively against me with all the strategy and choice-making I was missing. Playing like a bot isn't a good feeling. I do not recommend playing like a bot. I do not recommend this game.

It's a neat little tower defense game. I just worry that it may not have enough to it to keep you interested for very long. It didn't for me, at least.
I would recommend Revenge of the Titans, but ONLY if you really enjoy the genre.

A great arcade-style game that is very addicting. Even though I usually don't like RTS or tower defense, I liked the simplicity and good design of the game. It is difficult to master without being difficult to learn, with a stylized style reminiscent of an ultra-modern Advance Wars.

Nice casual game. Has some humor, lots of funny stuff and well, has a certain charm found typically in the mid 70's arcade games. Not too fancy, just enough to get the point accross.

To me, the most interesting part of this game is it's written in Java and runs so smoothly and vividly. I wasn't even aware of it until I checked the program folder.
