"Cutesy the graphics may be, but with the enemy’s farms in flames and a crater the size of Manhattan now occupying the centre of their village, I couldn't help but chuckle at the sinister undertones... A refreshingly spirited and ultimately enjoyable take on a genre" [- GGSgamer ]
"Idol Hands is trying to revive the god game genre and really seems to have done a fun job of it. This would be a fantastic starting place for someone looking to get into RTS games, with the style and theme making it clear and accessible whilst managing to stay satisfying while you're experimenting with the fire and explosions." [- Playfire ]
Now is the perfect time to get your hands on Idol Hands!
Thanks to the amazing feedback from the community, IDOL HANDS gets its first major update which is now LIVE and includes the following:
The implementation of WASD and arrow keys for moving forward, backward, left and right. You will also still be able to use the left mouse button to drag the landscape if you desire.
The ability to zoom the camera in/out using the mouse wheel or the -/= keys.
The ability to press the right mouse button to rotate camera but now with the added ability to use the more traditional conventions of moving the mouse left/right.
The ability to skip the initial start-up videos by pressing any key.
The ability to skip each of the four tutorials using a Skip button.
The addition of the following extra key mappings for using with the WASD keys (previous key mappings will still also work):
o 1 = Rain
o 2 = Lightning

o 4 = Meteor
o 5 = Volcano
o Z = Lower Land
o X = Flatten Land

Idol Hands is a strategy game where you gradually take over the world by guiding your people and defeating other gods.
You are a god in a time of many gods. Rather than having direct control over your people’s actions, your people will live their own lives; placing buildings, growing crops, and micro managing themselves.
Without you, your people are directionless!
Your powers will provide them with usable land, protect them from attack, and control nature to their benefit.
With your help they can grow and prosper; allowing them to increase the bounty of their harvests, and learn skills to eventually forming an immense fighting force that you can unleash upon your enemy’s population to wipe them out, leaving any other god powerless and defeated.
Play God with a nation of followers ready to respond to your command.
Shape a beautiful and fully-3D land as you see fit, carving out your perfect world.
Feel the power! Unleash massive natural disasters, striking your enemies down before you.
Play the game in the way that you want to. Multiple strategies mean that no two games will ever be the same.
