Avid readers of Pocket Gamer will be aware that we've had more than our fair share of tower defence titles. The genre is so over-saturated that it's genuinely hard to summon any enthusiasm for new additions.
Thankfully, Royal Revolt! manages to sidestep this problem by offering something relatively fresh and new. Like the brilliant Anomaly games, it's actually the opposite of tower defence - it belongs to the small but growing sub-genre of tower offence.
Instead of securing yourself behind robust castle walls, and building a plethora of defences around your fortress, in Royal Revolt! you assume the role of the besieger.
The opposite of tower defence, Royal Revolt! puts you in the boots of the attacker. And thanks to some great visuals and exciting gameplay, it manages to delight and entertain on almost every level
