A love letter to the 80's arcade classics, such as Space Invaders and Galaga.

As a fan of classic arcade games, I want to like Titan Attacks. Its polished visuals and basic core gameplay are well executed. However, control and pacing issues outweigh these positives.

To achieve fast movement, you must play with a mouse. And yet, the game does not lock your cursor to its window, nor does it lock in fullscreen mode with multiple monitors. If your mouse leaves the game, your movement is dropped. Players with multi-monitor setups have to disable all but one monitor to reliably play Titan Attacks, which is absurd.

So the mouse controls want you to play in fullscreen, which is cumbersome but manageable. But at least on Linux (haven't tested on Windows), minimizing while in fullscreen mode effectively crashes the game. I lost a couple hour-long sessions to this minimization crash, which is the biggest reason for my non-recommendation.

After each level, you are placed in a shop menu for purchasing tank upgrades. Given the brevity of levels, this menu seriously disrupts the flow. You can max out your ship quite quickly, rendering the shop nothing more than a health/bomb restore option, or more frequently, a "continue" button you must click before proceeding. I like the shop system, but wish it were integrated in a non-invasive manner.

Titan Attacks has clean, basic, and enjoyable gameplay. I just find it difficult to appreciate that action against these issues.

This game is a nice throwback to Space Invaders in a few areas, but overall I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone at its price for the following reasons.

- Smart Bombs keep rising in price throughout the game. This wouldn’t be an issue if it weren’t for...

- ...The fact that Smart Bombs are hard to come by in the rounds, and a good deal of rounds are along the lines of “burn smart bombs or die” kind, making this worse!

- Carpel tunnel is going to be an issue. Weapons do not fire rapidly unless you continue to tap the button, and secondary weapons do not proc unless you tap. It gets annoy fast.

- Capturing Titans...this is annoying, especially with the first point. If you shot them, nothing happens. If you capture them you get money. Fail to do so, and you lose cash equal to what you would have earned. You could easily find yourself in a bind where you’ll end up debating if losing the cash is worth it, or if you should risk having lives eaten into trying to save a bit more cash for smart bombs.

- Barely any mercy invincibility is the worse offender. All too easily you can lose a full stock of shields in under five seconds, ESPECIALLY in later levels.

Overall, I’d say skip it unless its in a bundle or on sale for no less than 50%. Otherwise keep away. Keep FAR away.

Also I bet it in 115 minutes, a bit under two hours. So if that’s too short for 100 waves, that’s another reason to wait for a sale.

Who get the kill? Titans or you?

Titan Attacks is an retro 2D game about Titans attacking earth. The title is based on the convention of the old game "Space Invaders" from 1978. Your quest is to destroy incoming race by moving the cannon to the left-right while shooting. Easy? Not really. The enemies want to destroy your cannon by shooting and getting closer to you. You need to be really fast and precise to finish every wave without a scratch. The game brings a lot of fun and give you the possibility to work on some abilities like reflex, focus and patience.

So who wins? You and your cannon or the whole Titan race?

Besides the main goal to destroy incoming enemies you also have many things to do in the game. With the next waves aliens becomes stronger and stronger so you have to upgrade your cannon by increasing rate, power or adding special weapons. On every planet the last wave is the boss level so you need to destroy the mothership to go further. Also there's a challenge stage where you can win special prizes and bonuses.

It's not an easy task to finish the game. I played a lot (^ hours) and right now I haven't completed the last "Titan" level of difficulty at the end - boss is too strong :) But I'm ranked in global Top 30 ^^

+ demanding game based on the idea of Space Invaders
+ has it's individual style
+ nice fun with friends and
+ online statistics and friends comparison
+ good balance for cannon upgrades
+ brings memories of old gaming
+ unlimited game time
+ checkpoints after completing every planet

Small bugs that could be fixed:
- controller is partly supported - there's a lack of Pause and Exit button
