Steampunk Tower 2

Steampunk Tower 2

Interesting and unique take on the tower defence genre, but a lack of explanation along with a clumsily devised game, confusing campaign and poor gameplay mechanics hamper this game and make it a chore to play as it progresses.


I quite like the concept of a tower with customizeable turrets being dropped in the battlefield. I also like the design of the stick figures operating the turrets while you see a variety of enemy AI on the battlefield.


Customizing your turrets is downright confusing. It consists of mixing an array of scrap you receive at the end of each battle and then choosing the results that arise out of the combination of different scrap materials. Um ok? Some of the parts require for the upgrades are specialized and can only be found in cities that you have conquered. So you’re forced to basically wait as you send out the train with one agent on it until you can upgrade it. And if you don’t own the territory that houses that upgrade part, then forget it. You’re stuck. Either way, customizing and upgrading parts is dependent upon too many options.

Review - Steampunk Tower 2


RATING: 8.0 / 10 - Of Men and Steam-powered Monsters



Steampunk Tower 2 is a strategy / tower defense game hybrid with some twists to the formula. In an alternative, mid-800esque steampunk European continent, a great war is raging between the forces of The Cult and the other free nations, and is not going well for the latter. The cult, using technological superiority and military might, has subdued most of the Free Nations and its total dominance is imminent. Not everything is lost though, as there is still someone fighting: Lord Bertram Bingham, a powerful noble, is on a quest to gather the best scientists, soldiers and tacticians of the Free Nations to mount a counter-offensive against the Cult, using as a trump card the powerful Steampunk Tower, a technologically advanced battlestation deployable anywhere in brief times. And so the war against the Cult begins again.

Damnation is a complete piece of bull-crap and I regret getting it, but it’s now time for a story.

Damnation is set on an alternate version of planet Earth, in the early part of the 20th century after the American Civil War, which had spanned over several decades, where steam engines replace combustion engines.

Both sides of the war fall and aloud Prescott an evil man who sold weapons to both sides. He was able to take over and went away with both the Union and Confederacy and turned the United States of America into a country called the American Empire/or the new America, but there are people still fighting, fighting him.

Damnation is a game that has its charm. But that charm stays in its premise and does not deliver.


Damnation falls really short in everything and the first you immediately see as an example are the graphics.

Even for its time graphics are really bad - everything is kinda blurry and steamy. Steamy not as steampunk steamy because these bad graphics have nothing to do with the game’s style.

It doesn’t matter how big were Codemasters then. Not even their supposedly small budget, as much. There are many other small studios with games even a decade older than this one but with graphics that are way better and moreover - bearable. I don’t have a problem with retro/classic games' visuals but quite the opposite. However, these ones here are pretty bad. And the poor visuals are even more noticeable in the cutscenes.

Naval Warfare

By Jove have I ever seen a pretty game.

Naval Warfare strikes me as a game that tries for a certain balance between both satisfying, in-depth, skill based gameplay and enormous gratuitous explosions. Suffice to say it hits that mark. Despite plenty of checkpoints and fairly generous power ups this game genuinely feels challenging to play - which makes it even more satisfying to watch a ship sink below the waves.

Now, as I said earlier, this game is pretty. Really pretty. (You may wish to glance at the screenshots above at this point) The game is tagged as “Steampunk”, a title I will happily say it earns. Unlike many others, who grab a few gears, brass and a bucket of oil, stick them on an airship, give it to a lady wearing a corset and metal goggles (seriously why would you ever make your goggles out of metal), then proceed to slap the steampunk label on it; this game has clearly thought put into it’s art and design. Everything from an aircraft to enourmous battleships and artillery cannons fit together perfectly.

this game has horrible mouse control and voice acting, alot of the options menu wont even work, the progression system makes no sence, the first boss battle is badly made and the rest of the boss battles are just puzzles with a bit of shooting that still makes no sence outside of blind shooting, at times you cant use some support boats because of the reason of no, the one part of the game that i bought it for that i saw in the show case video was short and poorly made, the story was crap, the cut scenes were out of synk cut out and did not fit the art style, some of the boats are made of pure bull shit (play and you would know), the ending was pointless and had the worst twist, its never explains the back story of why the word is water, you travle from the polls of the world to the equator in no time flat, the AI is as dumb as bricks, the w a s d keys are some how side ways, and it looks like shit.

Red Game Without A Great Name

It’s a nice little “puzzle” game where you have to help a mechanical bird to fly from one point to another on the level and pick some stuff on the way. The twist is in the unique controls which let you teleport a bird into any empty from obstacles place on the screen by dragging it there with a mouse. However, you can’t stop it or directly control flight direction of the bird, so don’t leave it alone for too long since it may crash into spiky objects and… break, I guess. It’s mechanical, so it can’t actually die. The level scrolls on its own too, so if the bird will go off-screen it will “break” too.

  • Unique gameplay mechanics. Essentially you can teleport the bird to any open area on the screen, however the bird is continuously flying on it’s own and the level continues to scroll. You try to avoid running into obstacles or falling off the screen.

  • Great minimalist art style. The mix of the black foreground with the red, orange, and purple colors in the background is very visually pleasing. Every level is also surprisingly detailed and creatively designed

Odd mix of sprites and non-sprite effects

Strange sprite outline issues

Some stuttering at times

-=The Details=-

Steel Empire was a game originally released on the SEGA Genesis back in 1992, when the influx of shmups for the system was dying down. It made a name for itself by being a well made game with a Steampunk setting that differed from a lot of the other shmups coming out at the time, along with a somewhat movie-like presentation. In time, the game was ported to the GameBoy Advance in 2004 and the DS in 2014. And this game is more or less a port of the DS version.

Don’t bother

Lighting and Shadows are bugged causing it to flicker and stretch across the screen and as soon as I try to host a game (since there is no servers so you can only play against bots) all audio goes missing.

When the shadows and lighting was not flickering and stretching across my screen the maps looked alright

Fabula Mortis is an online FPS Arena Shooter. There’s a variety of characters with different weapons and abilities to choose from.

While the graphics are very nice thanks to the Unreal Engine, the gameplay itself is standard, boring Unreal FPS. Furthermore, the game is completely dead. It’s multiplayer only and there’s no servers.

There are many other, better arena shooters (especially with heavyweights like Epic and Blizzard in the market), so it’s understandable this very mediocre entry hasn’t succeeded and is now dead.

This game’s marketing shows multiplayer, I cannot find any way of accessing it if it exists. What is here is an airship that you have to run across on your own repairing, where sometimes your repair progress resets randomly. When you aren’t repairing the airship, you are expected to find one of the six turrets on the airship and use it to shoot down the enemies attacking it. Throughout the campaign you unlock weapons or armor based on your performance that you can take into later campaign levels. There are four weapons, each with an upgraded version, that you can unlock up to six instances of to place in the six turret slots on the airship. There is a gattling gun that does a lot of damage at close range, but little outside of that; a cannon that does significant damage, but is slow firing with a slow projectile; the tesla gun that charges to fire a beam at whatever you are aiming at, but has to reload after every shot and only does two cannon shells of damage; and rockets, which I never chose to unlock before I beat the game. While the game is amusing, it is too simple with some irritating bugs that lead to it not really being worth picking up, but it could be a decent diversion if it came free with something else as a look at what came before in Muse’s development history.

Please add some more advanced options. The lack of motion blur and mouse sensitivity settings make it almost unplayable for me. I can’t comment much on the gameplay as a result, but what i did play wasn’t bad, especially considering it’s free. But until more advanced options are added I have to not recommend.


I was able to make it through the game by turning the overall settings to low. For some reason that turns off motion blur. The game is very short, however I think it’s pretty good for a school project. I think it’s worth playing, and I would recommend if the above settings were added.

I’m not sure if I am missing a large issue with this re-issue of this classic game, but the low metascore and bad reviews are something I just can not relate to or agree with at all. The Chaos Engine is a fantastic game that has a rock solid design, it is also one of the first games I ever played on the Amiga and was thrilled to see a remastered version released on Steam. Playing this again for the first time in about 18 years was the ultimate nostalgia trip. This game was way ahead of it’s time, as was it’s music.

This is more a rant that a review so bear with me…

Chaos Engine year 1993. Reactions “This game is too hard whine whine whine”

Chaos Engine year 2013. Reactions “This game is too hard whine i want this whine i want that what a shame i have been a fan my whole life whine”.

I have not yet read any good points why this truly original HD remake game would suck. this game is rock solid in design. I can’t even name another game that would be like it and have the same level of thought used to design it. And dont even start on the graphics. they are bitmap brothers style graphics. Their trade mark. Whoever wants to mess with that needs to jump into an icy lake.

A slightly broken run and gun game set in the steampunk world, but does it have potential? Yes it does, the game itself is a lot of fun, but infuriating when it doesn’t work like it’s meant to be, sometimes your character just spasms out, and seems to be immortal at others.

The world you’re in is amazing drawn, with high attention to detail and graphics, I love the steampunk theme, it gives it a lovely vibe, the controls freeze at times but mostly they’re smooth and responsive.

I’d advise you to wait on this game a bit till it gets fixed, otherwise this could be a wonderful game.

Wells feels like maybe someone’s first or second commercial game. It aims to run at 60 FPS but drops frames pretty regularly (maybe 58 FPS if you average it out, it can be adjusted to) the voice acting was clearly all done by one person just to have it in the game, and the last cutscene mentions an artifact that we never see before then. All told though? The weapons all have different uses for both combat and progression (and it’s not just pistol/shotgun/rifle either, there are some surprises in there,) the art direction is really nice from start to finish, and some of the boss fights are really quite memorable.
