Created in homage to Populous, Reprisal lets you take control of a tribe, guiding them, building land and making them grow in number. Using special totem powers you can control nature itself unleashing its full fury on anyone that stands in your way. But be warned, other tribes may not take too kindly to your intentions and will put up a fight! Desktop edition includes: Enhanced full stereo chip tunes to nod along too, Unlock-able challenge islands, Offline local storage and Enhanced full screen display features! It also includes a full standalone PC installer and Mac App version. Includes 'The Making of Reprisal', a 38 page digital book charting the highs and lows of over a years development! ★★ ★★

the aesthetics are good, and the music is wonderful, but i feel the actual gameplay could be further refined, im not saying its bad im just saying the gameplay can and should be better, other than that everything else is lovely

Well the offline is free to play now, but it was always free to play in flash form. I loved it originally when I played it on Armorgames (I think), although I could never finish the last level. The AI was too fast and too aggressive. But nevertheless I still enjoyed it.

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
