Genres: Action, Strategy

Taur is an action-strategy sci-fi game. Inspired by a multitude of games in classic genres such as tower defense, shooter, real-time strategy and more, creating a unique type of gameplay. Created by one-person indie studio Echo Entertainment. GAMEPLAY Prime Cannon: Control the powerful Prime Cannon, equipped with a primary and a secondary weapon that can be fired simultaneously. Weapons: Unlock and upgrade different weapons, and bring them to bear at any time on the battlefield. Abilities: Unlock multiple, powerful abilities and use them to turn the tide of battle. Build: Use the resources gained from secured war zones to expand your Taur defenses by building a variety of auto-turrets, droids, aircraft and more. Destruction: Every unit, structure, tree and plant is fully destructible, leading to tactical advantages or disadvantages over the course of a battle as the environment is destroyed. Attacks: Plan your defenses for different types of attacks such as full-scale invasions, air raids, tank sieges and infantry skyfall attacks. Imperion: Defeat the increasingly massive armies of the warmongering galactic droid empire known as the Imperion. CAMPAIGN Control: Prevent the planet of Taurea, home of the Tauron droids, from falling into Imperion hands. Control of the planet will either be gained or lost over time, depending on your success on the battlefield. Should the Imperion gain full control of Taurea, the campaign will be lost. War Zones: The Taur can only be deployed to one war zone per day, forcing you to abandon the remaining ones. Abandoned war zones may incur loss of control, and their resources are lost, so choose carefully. Resources: Obtain resources by successfully securing war zones. Use them to build new structures, reforge weapons and research new tech. Forge: Use the Forge to reshape the quality and damage of your Prime Cannon weapons. Research: Unlock new tech to be used in battle. Overlord: In order to win the war and end the campaign, you must find a way to defeat the extremely powerful Imperion Overlord in battle.

Taur Reviews

As is, Taur has a wonderful central idea – it lets you tear up the place with a ridiculously powerful sci-fi cannon that's a joy to control – but the elements surrounding that core concept aren't as fleshed-out, refined, or engaging. It's the kind of game that leaves you wanting a sequel that can fire on all cylinders.

I’m not sure Taur has enough depth or variety to justify its price tag, but it is good for picking up in half-hour bouts and knowing you can make a decent chunk of progress.

Taur has a few exciting moments and addictive progression elements to get you far into the campaign, but repetitive design, uneven difficulty, and unsatisfying combat eventually wear out its welcome.

If it wasn’t for its repetitive maps and over reliance on RNG for its research tree, Taur would’ve been one of the most innovative and enjoyable last stand / tower defense game I have played in years. As it stands, is still an enjoyable experience, although a bit too grindy.
