Lovely game, like an unofficial sequel to Populous.
Plenty of levels and different powers to try out with a pleasing chiptune soundtrack.
Only complaints are that terraforming the land can be a bit fiddly sometimes and the graphics are a bit too simple meaning that it's not always quite clear what's going on.
Great game! I missed Populous (2) when it was first around -- I had a C64 at the time. So thanks for the opportunity, now I can make up for it. :)
However, I can't seem to notice that the game is bit too easy. The enemies are very passive -- it's as if they didn't have anything better to do than wait for the player to clobber them on the head. Maybe I am mistaken, but I feel as if the enemies were more aggressive in the flash version?
If you have ever played Populous as a kid, the gameplay of Reprisal will immediately bring back memories.
Stunning and artistic combination of old-school 8-bit graphics and modern effects. Amazing 8-bit soundtracks (there could be more tracks though).
The game will entertain you for a good 15-20 hours if you want to clear every stage and challenge and play a few skirmish games.
The gameplay is simple and easy to uderstand, yet addicting.
The AI could have some improvements, I never really managed to lose throughout the entire game. But maybe I'm just good.
Reccomended to anyone who loves old-school RTS games. I enjoyed every minute of this and completed everything I could.
Based on my experience with the webdemo... not bad. But it feels sometimes like the AI could do with some improvements (one time I tried to direct them one way but they insisted on trying to attack an island they couldn't reach).
