    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

    Titan Attacks is a fun little game by a British Indie developer that’s perfect for quick blasts on the go.

    The gameplay will remind you of Space Invaders, you control a tank which can move left and right along the bottom of the screen and above you are attacking aliens who move left and right slowly progressing down the screen towards you, firing shots while they move.

    The idea is simple; destroy them all by firing your tanks weapon before they destroy you. This simple idea leads to some addictive gameplay as you rack up points and earn money to buy upgrades and supplies. As you complete each stage without taking a hit you also earn a multiplier, which keeps increasing with each stage you clear until you take damage, which resets the multiplier.

    Destroying the attacking aliens involves some precise timing as you need to ensure your bullet hits them as they move and you also need to keep an eye there bullets coming towards you so you can move out of the way.

    During the levels ships which drop bonus points and supplies will fly across the top of the map and you need to prioritise shooting them so you can claim there rewards.

    At the end of each stage you can spend the money you’ve earned on more shields, a more powerful gun or new weapons that give you the edge in the next battle.

    The graphics are simple and colourful and the background changes as you progress through the stages. The soundtrack keeps you focused with its retro style beats.

    There’s a leaderboard where you can compare your scores against the world and your friends to see how you stack up.

    Overall this game is great fun and really addictive and for £7.99 you get the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita versions so there’s really no reason not to try it.

The main difference with them isThis game can offer a couple hours of fun with a gameplay that remembers old classics like Space Invaders. The main difference with them is the presence of an upgrading system that needs to be mastered in order to complete the game allowing little room for errors. Gameplay is challenging at first, but its linearity makes it easy to learn in a short time, then the game becomes a bit repetitive. The graphic style is simple yet appealing, with nice effects and explosions but nothing exceptional thinking of the potential of current consoles.

    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.

    Not really sure how this game got past the Q&A-department, because there is some very noticeable and game-breaking lag on the PS4-port. EveryNot really sure how this game got past the Q&A-department, because there is some very noticeable and game-breaking lag on the PS4-port. Every second (presumably, every 60th frame), the game just jitters and makes any kind of skill involved in this game impossible to meter. Even if you are not trying to go for records, this pretty quickly makes the game really annoying and just just want to shut it down. You can turn off shaders and tinker with the graphics-settings, still seems to lag and miss input no matter what you do on PS4. Very bad. Expand
