Revenge of the Titans is a nearly perfect game. It will annihilate all of your free time for as long as you're consumed by it. It will also make you want to punch your screen at least once. If you missed out on the opportunity to get it in the Humble Bundle, you can get the game on Steam for $14.99, or check the official website for special deals. Either way, it's worth your time, money, and occasional frustration.

A testament to the range of the strategy genre, Revenge of the Titans is a perfect evolution of the tension and tactical gameplay of tower defence alongside the micromanagement and quick thinking RTS trappings. A shining example of indie innovation.

Revenge of the Titans is what you get when you inject some real indie love into a tired genre - style, innovation, experimentation and instant playability. Some may find themselves frustrated with a customization approach that leaves room for epic failures, but most will find the open-ended nature of it all quite refreshing.

Revenge of the Titans ist trotz oder gerade wegen des kniffeligen Schwierigkeitsgrades eine lohnenswerte, launige und motivierende Tower Defense. Vor allem das Forschungssystem, die taktische Tiefe, die leichten Echtzeit-Strategieelemente sowie das außergewöhnliche Retro-Design sorgen dafür, dass die Missionen erstaunlich motivierend und fordernd bleiben. Nichtsdestotrotz hätte angesichts der Trial&Error-Gefahr ein optionaler leichter Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht geschadet und der unübersichtliche Forschungsbildschirm bietet zu wenig Planungs- und Vergleichsmöglichkeiten. Auch eine Bibliothek der Feinde, Waffen und Co. wäre schön gewesen. Doch ein Großteil der Kritikpunkte gehört prinzipiell in die Kategorie "Meckern auf hohem Niveau", denn Revenge of the Titans ist eine gute und fordernde Tower Defense vor stimmiger Retro-Kulisse. Ein kleiner Geheimtipp!

Nachdem der gesamte Bericht schon einer Lobeshymne gleicht, will ich mich bei der Zusammenfassung kurz halten, um nicht den Eindruck der übermäßigen Lobhudelei zu erwecken. Eines ist jedoch gewiss, die zehn Euro, die man über die Steam-Plattform für „Revenge of the Titans“ hinlegen muss, garantieren ein grandioses Arcadegame mit einem enormen Suchtpotenzial. Hier bekommt man für wenig Geld einen Titel, der einem viel Freude machen wird und der mit Sicherheit über lange Zeit beste Unterhaltung verspricht. Nicht nur für Retrofreunde eine wahre Perle. I’m hooked!

Its testament to the strength of Revenge of the Titan’s the I enjoyed it despite having played a lot of tower defence games recently. It has a few original ideas, but it is also so well executed that its well worth the relatively low price point. Building turrets is often fun, but in Revenge of the Titans the sheer scale of the chaos on screen makes it more than just enjoyable, its essential.

Het is die snelheid, samen met de vrijheid van de Titans en de constante zorg om je cashflow die van Revenge of the Titens een erg aantrekkelijke tower defense-game maken. De game test je op verschillende manieren en dat komt de gameplay absoluut ten goede. Revenge of the Titans kan zich zo moeiteloos meten met andere toppers zoals Plants vs. Zombies, vooral omdat het een duidelijke smoel heeft. Al komt dat misschien ook door de geweldige retro-graphics.

While mainstream strategy largely continues to gnaw upon the desiccated husk of Command & Conquer, and so much indie strategy simply slaps new graphics on tower defence mechanics, Revenge of the Titans is, apparently quite effortlessly, doing its own thing.

De TD/RTS combinatie hebben we al beter uitgevoerd gezien, maar Puppy Games levert niettemin een erg knappe game af voorzien van hun gekende en haast onweerstaanbare retrostijl.

It’s simple, well executed and, so long as you’re not bothered by a little trial and error with your research, good fun.

Revenge of the Titans è sicuramente uno dei Tower Defense più riusciti e “tosti” degli ultimi anni, nascosto sotto la dura scorza di un impianto tecnico volutamente datato ma piacevole. Se non spaventano le sfide dure ma stimolanti, il titolo dei Puppy Games è ciò che fa per voi, grazie ad un gameplay riuscitissimo ed alla notevole libertà di approccio e azione. In definitiva è un acquisto caldamente consigliato a tutti quelli che han fame di Tower Defense, appassionati e non.

Revenge of the Titans est un tower defense très sympathique à jouer, mais qui se montre aussi particulièrement retors. Un titre à réserver aux férus du genre.

Indie Game Reviewer
If you’re a fan of tower defense games and like the retro-minimalist art style evident in the screenshots you’ll be in gamer heaven with Revenge of the Titans. The fact that Puppy Games was willing to include RotT in the Humble Indie Bundle #2, and was generous enough to release the source code when enough funds were generated by the project, is enough for me to continue support their efforts.

Revenge of the Titans does a lot of clever stuff within the tower defense genre, emulating the same rules-based gameplay that made the genre popular while adding new complications. But it is also let down by the flaws that plague the genre -- the snowball effect of mistakes, the necessity to plan and build for specialized enemies at the cost of overall effectiveness. The upgrade system also leaves a lot to be desired. Tower defense purists will adore the challenges of perfecting build orders and planning three levels in advance, but the sharp difficulty curve and poor upgrade system prevent it from having mass appeal.
