0 comments by reprisaluniverse on Oct 1st, 2014

Thank you for all your feedback since it's launch just under two weeks ago.

I've addressed issues of the Kindle tool and also AI balancing in this build. There are now options to turn Kindling 'off' for both 1UP and CPU players. You will also have the option to change the 'Flag' speed effecting how fast populants are made in settlements. These options are located in the options panel on the Island Overview page (The Question mark located bottom left of screen)

I also wanted to list some keyboard short cuts that may help:

1 - (When on in the options) switch to Kindle
2 - Switch to terraforming tool and open earth totems
3 - Open Wind totems
4 - Open Fire totems
p - pause

And then here's a cheeky one, if you want to 'grab' the screen to a PNG, press 'c'! (Make sure you save the file with a .png on PC)

Change log - 35.19


  • Mouse edge screen scrolling when in full screen mode
  • Options added to have 'no kindle' option available to 1up and cpu players
  • 'Flag speed' option added for faster games
  • Above two functions available in options when viewing island overview screen
  • Display of how many islands left to unlock the universe
  • Complete Font overhaul :D

Bug Fixes

  • Overall game percentage displays correct values
  • Amulet corrections made. A correct amount of amulets now present in Universe!
  • Players names can now be 2 or more characters
  • Island 2 now made easier
  • Kindle AI balancing
  • Esc key windows game and restores it to fullscreen
  • Correct display of last settled players in Universe
  • Wonder punch bug fixed
  • When paused on 'timed' islands, counter is paused

You can grab Reprisal Universe on Desura, Steam and GOG.

Also, a question:
Would you ever back a Kickstarter to convert Reprisal Universe to tablet devices?
Just canvasing for feedback :D

Just 4 islands (web has the full campaign) Desktop demo has the full screen, right click, full Stereo audio music, alot of recoding of the main engine (much better memory management) etc

Also the full version gives you access to PC, Mac and Linux versions and a full standalone PC installer :D

Why would someone buy this game for 6 $ when you can play it for free on newgrounds or any other flash game website ? I like the game thought why would i spent 6$ for a game i already played for free on a website ?

Does it require Desura or can I download and play it without Desura? I really don't like Desura even though that may be blasphemy here. I just don't like having a couple games on Desura and all the rest of my games on Steam.

Well actually when you have downloaded and installed a game via Desura you can launch it w/o opening Desura. navigate to your desura folder and open the ./common/[gamename] folder. the execuatble should be somewhere in there.

If you didn't enjoy Populous in the first place then you won't be enjoying this either.

-Lot's of green

-Clunky, bad controls
-Hard to see where are you placing things
-You wether like or hate the art style
