    Titan Attacks is a seriously addictive spin on a classic video game formula that’ll keep you playing beyond your first run through its one hundred stages.

    It's a basic game in design and premise with just enough there to keep things interesting, and while it's not even remotely going out on a ledge with new design philosophies, beautiful graphics, or a lengthy campaign, its hook resides in its quaintness. It's unapologetically old-school.

    Almost as simple as a shooter can get, Puppygames’ space blaster owes its success to our inability to be satisfied by a personal best. The premise and genre make more sense on the Vita than the PS4 (though options are always nice to have), but Titan Attacks is charmingly simple and hugely playable on any format.

    Titan Attacks is a fan service to space-invading brethren of old, but strip away the charm and flattery and you are left with an antiquated, short-lived experience that facilitates just a tinge of classic fun.

But it adds in layers of modernity through the use of weapon and ship upgrades, and an increasingly difficult balancing act of available upgrades and tactics to complete the 100 levels of the game. New Game+ and leaderboards features also gives it added replayability. Expand

The levels are fun and challenging, and I keep finding myself coming back for just one more attempt to topple the next boss. That is my one complaint with Titan Attacks though, every boss fight past the first one feels cheap. The game starts to boil down to how much cash you can put towards your shield upgrades in a battle of attrition with the mother ship. Outside of that I find myself coming back to this game multiple times a week for some bite sized space shooter fun. Expand

    Skip this and fire up "Space Invaders" instead.

    Puppy games is a studio notorious for having extremely unforgiving money systems in their games. Both of the Titan games are good examples. If you don't purchase upgrades ~just right~ you're screwed.

    Combine that with no saving between levels so you're forced to completely restart, and no idea what you're buying / fighting against until you trial & error it, and you've got a game that maybe you'll play a couple times but quickly get put off by the BS.

    If you like keeping progress in games, stay FAR away.

    You have to practically milk your money to beat the bosses as you'll be so underpowered it's beyond stupid.
    Gets kind of boring after awhile too.. stick with the classics like Asteroids.

    these games aren't very good, and they have been available for a long time.
    chances are this game would run on any laptop...
