Retaliate is my first ever game, ever. I originally created it for Android and then after learning to develop for the Roku brought a simplified version of the game to Roku.
Retaliate was actually mildly inspired by my favorite game of all time, Savage 2. The game embraces the idea of alternating between attacking and blocking.
Although I still really like the core mechanics of the game, Retaliate is my first game and it shows. For this reason Retaliate is actually in the process of getting a full visual overhaul as well as adding additional gameplay. More details coming soon!
