Development

Last stand against a Titan

Revenge of the Titans was developed by indie British studio Puppy games and was released as a playable beta download on May 24, 2010. Players who pre-ordered the game had the chance to play the beta version of the game as updates were constantly being released. During the time of the second Humble Bundle, the game was in its beta stage and later gave purchasers access to the full Steam game. It received notable publicity for its involvement in the Second Humble Bundle, featuring alongside Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, and Cortex Command. The game's visual style is largely rooted in the developer's retro arcade sensibilities, which has become popular among developers of late.

Gameplay

R&D Screen

Gameplay is centered around constructing and commanding ground forces in increasingly massive battles across the solar system, and is high paced. Players can invest in R&D to discover new technologies, such as blaster turrets, rocket launchers, laser cannons, explosives, barricades, shield generators, refineries and reactors. Enemies start off by following a strict path, but later on, will attack from all directions and will take any path needed to get to your base.

Mission Select

Resources by setting up refineries around crystals. You can also collect various power ups as they pop up on the screen, with various effects such as temporary increase in the turrets fire power, or freezing the Titans for a few seconds.

The final stages of the game pivot around invading the Titan alien invaders' own home moon, Titan, and defeating them once and for all.

The gameplay depends on your ability to optimize your tower, support tower, upgrade choices.
