Fury of the Gods Review
- Easy to pick up and play; jab and drag powers and powerful mythical creatures to crush the uppity humans.
- Multiple gods to choose from; gives the player a limited sense of variety.
- Depth in gameplay exhausted early on; tactics never really change, making the game feel dull and repetitive.
Fury of the Gods may be heavy on the wrath, but it quickly settles in to a seething rage, followed by a feeling of empty anger as you crush, zap, and summon over and over without a need to adapt to the challenge presented to you.

Smashing small, angry humans in to a fine red paste (or an even finer black powder) with the powers of a god is something we've had fun with before in games like Babel Rising. So it only makes sense that Spectral Games would seek to exploit the mythos rich Greek pantheon for their take on the almost literal 'tower defense' genre in Fury of the Gods.
You're given control of one of three different gods (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) and tasked with protecting their temple from the angry humans rebelling against them. Tapping provides you with a basic, visceral crushing attack, while other powers unique to each god unlock as you progress, giving you the ability to zap and flay the uppity mortals with ease.
Not content with the magical firepower of a god? Each one can also unlock a selection of mythical creatures that can be hired and placed along the many pathways leading up to your temple; the positions are limited, but this isn't a concern as they're considerably expensive, so you'll only use a handful at a time anyway.
Unfortunately what should be a fairly simple and mindlessly enjoyable romp ends up feeling tired and repetitive early on. Stab a few humans; throw a few spells at them; drop some monsters on their heads; they'll get a bit stronger with each new stage (somehow managing to create near god-proof armor), but the player is never really asked to change their tactics - you simply need to out-scale, not out-play your enemies.
While easy on the eyes, Fury of the Gods doesn't add enough depth and variety in its gameplay to keep the player engaged. However, if all you're after is a game with mindless explosions and plenty of humans to jab in to oblivion, this may still work for you.
