Rural stealth roguelike Basingstoke lurches out

Speaking as someone who comes from a place that made someone literally grimace and turn away when I named it the other day, I'm in two minds about Basingstoke's running gag about running away from Basingstoke. One mind is firmly on the side of any besmirched Basestokians. The other mind reckons the freshly released stealth/action roguelike from Revenge Of The Titans devs Puppygames is only…

Have You Played… Revenge Of The Titans?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I miss the tower defense craze of the late noughties and early tensies, seeing loads of ideas spiral out from the handful of TDs which caught mainstream attention. "Ours is polished and has funny voices!" goes one dev. "Ours has co-op!" says another.…

Better Than Stoke, I Guess: Basingstoke

I feel like instead of picking on an individual place, post-apocalyptic survival roguelike Basingstoke should just be called Your Town. Who doesn't feel like they're beating back invading alien dog-things in a pitch black nightmare when they're walking home? Or maybe that's just a similarity Basingstoke and Glasgow share? I'll admit this won't feel realistic to me without the accents. The horrific wasteland that is…

Puppygames’ Fate Worse Than Closing: Basingstoke

I broadly assume that developers who make games I like are doing well financially, because my taste is impeccable and surely everyone shares it. Puppygames make things like Droid Assault and top tower defence Revenge of the Titans, so how could they possibly be in trouble? Oh but they are, they are. Facing running out of money before they could possibly finish their current game,…

Puppygames Fill The Humble Weekly Bundle

The Humble Puppy Bundle sounds... I really don't know. Puppies are cute, so good. But a bundle of them, all at once? I can't take on that much responsibility! Oh, and dogs are rubbish! Fortunately this is a Humble Weekly Bundle from Puppygames, consisting of the UK developer's entire catalogue. And no actual baby animals. Which means you can pay what you want for Ultratron,…

Rezzed! Puppygames Hi-Score Competition, Space Hulk

Makers of retro arcadian pixels of joy, Puppygames, send word that they are running a hi-score competition at Rezzed 2013. (That's this weekend at the NEC in Birmingham.) If you win, you get a Nexus 7. Nice! They explain: "Under our baleful glare, hapless punters who attempt to creep past our booth unnoticed will be captured and enslaved in front of one of our games…

Feature: Smash Robot Telly-Tron

Impressions: Ultratron

I just noticed that the spotlights are following me and that arrows flash at the side of the arena right before a power-up twinkles into view, hovering across the screen and leaving trails of excitement. Everything leaves glowing tracks or showers of sparks. Sometimes, naturally, the power-up is a score-spewing giant fruit. Ultratron is arena-based, robot dismantling particle heaven.

Revenge Of Revenge of the Titans

It's more than odd to be posting about DLC for a game that came out almost exactly two years ago, but then I think it's more than odd that dogs don't just crap all over their owners' bedroom floors, so you shouldn't take my surprise seriously. Revenge of the Titans was/is an excellent and ferocious tower defence/RTS game from the redoubtable UK indie Caspian 'Puppy…

Revenge Of The Titans Overhauled, Demo

Last summer, when I originally played the beta version of Puppy Games' charming tower defence game, Revenge Of The Titans, I had some thoughts on the game. it wasn't finished, of course, but I had no idea that Puppy Games would go on to address all of my criticisms and then go much further. The latest version of the game (of which there is a…

Revenge Of The Titans: It’s A Demo

Hooray and huzzah, a demo has been released for not-quite-ready-yet tower defence-with-RTS-bits, Revenge Of The Titans. It's super-cute, and eminently playable. Clicking to collect resources in a Plants Vs Zombies way, and manually reloading your towers, means that you have a constant thrum of activities to attend to as the titans approach. The full game isn't available for a few weeks, but the pre-order is…

(Short) Interview: Revenge Of The Titans!

Unlikely-named Puppygames developer Caspian Prince has answered some of our questions about the splendid-looking forthcoming not-actually-a-tower-defence-game, Revenge Of The Titans. It looks proper brilliant, and you need to watch the videos I've posted below, as well as read the words. You need to. If you don't then something will happen to your glands.
