Top Critic Average
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised with Reptilian Rebellion. It’s a simple, cheap, nostalgia-feeling arcade game that can be very addicting. A little more variety in the visuals and audio would have helped, but as it stands, if you are looking for a cheap and fun game, Reptilian Rebellion will give you a good bang for your buck if you enjoy high-score driven games.
Reptilian Rebellion may feature a funny concept interesting enough for a title of this dimension but the game has nothing else going for it, as its interface and visual appearance are below the acceptable standards and its gameplay quickly becomes way too dull, even for an eShop title at this price. There are several better alternatives in the Wii U's digital catalogue for this style.

There's no denying the fact that this budget-priced Wii U eShop title would be much better suited to mobile platforms, perhaps even as a free-to-play app; the classic challenge of bettering your score by blasting wave after wave of reptiles is Reptilian Rebellion's single allure. So, unless you're desperately seeking a game experience inspired by retro arcade gaming with a modern touch, this might be best left to conspiracy theorists.
