Titan Attacks! is a retro, arcade, 2-D shooter where the nameless Commander fends off the Titan invasion with his trusty pixelated tank.

The game commences on Earth then progresses to new zones. Zone progression occurs when its boss is defeated. There are a total of five zones, each containing twenty levels, with their own unique design. Once all five have been defeated, it loops back to Earth, albeit with a slightly higher difficulty.

The game mechanics are fairly straightforward; aim & kill. Fortunately, that doesn’t do Titan Attacks! the justice it deserves. The mechanics conspire in such a way to exude a simple & fun experience. There are a number of boosts & improvements that can be purchased between levels to mitigate your success. For example, there are powerful area-of-effect bombs, weapon add-ons, additional shielding & more. Currency is derived from killing enemies & also capturing them. Capturing enemies adds a unique dimension to some situations, as doing so can be lethally dangerous, but extremely profitable. The Titans have a wide arsenal of ships & weapons that change in function & attitude from zone to zone, which can easily lead to your undoing if not cautious. There are bonus rounds that gauge your accuracy & reward you accordingly so keep nimble. These rounds occur between levels, after every seventh level.

There isn’t really any story, beyond what’s presented visually but that’s really to be expected with an arcade shooter. The sound is also quite typical of the genre, with generally the same music repeated throughout. The graphics while pixelated, are visually appealing, with colors & art that mesh together nicely.

For high score hunters, your high score is saved onto online leaderboards. So you can show off your skills or lack of them to your friends.

Awesome graphic and gameplay! It's like the old school Space Invaders. If you play Space Invaders, play this.
Very nice game, and you can earn and craft awesome looking badges :D

Nostalgia city with this game. A retro arcade 2-D shooter that's super fun and addicting to play. The pixelated aesthetic of the game brings back memories and is a refreshing trip down memory lane you didn't know you wanted until you play it. It's simplistic in every way, but a blast to play none the less. Give it a go! It's a new age space invaders you know you want to try!

It's like space invaders, except with upgrades. Then it's just button mashing.

6/10

Lots of button mashing.

As an avid gamer old enough to have played such classics as Galaga and Astrosmash when they were still relatively new I'll be the first to point out that not all things retro are necessarily positive additions to modern gaming or more specifically the wave of neo-retro titles we've been seeing of late. In consistent Puppy Games fashion Titan Attacks flaunts its retro styling mixed with modern shader effects indicative of an old meets new formula which seeks to be more than the sum of its parts. However like their other titles the decidedly more modern features of Titan Attacks are severely undermined by the cartoonishly exaggerated retro grade difficulty . Upgrades to the player controlled tank which are admittedly cool on paper are immediately rendered underwhelming as the game rapidly devolves into near bullet-hell nonsense. For those who fondly recollect their quarters being crunched as though it were one of the finer aspects of the golden era of arcade gaming maybe you should dig a little deeper and remember that there was more to retro gaming than punishment and frustration. It was the game mechanics that really shined. Some gamers prefer to no-life every game they play until satisfied that they are superior to said games in every conceivable way possible and take an arguably dubious pride in astronomically high scores, full achievements, difficulty levels mastered, etc. Some of us value our time and money just a touch more than that. Therein lies the biggest problem with Titan attacks: With crushing difficulty scaling and no special features conveying any sort of replay value the average player is likely to get little more than a couple hours worth of game play out of this title. So if the hippsterific devs over at Puppy Games are so excruciatingly retro why is this the case? I seem to recall getting loads more play time out of my Intellivision and NES cartridges back in the day. Let's make a 'retro' comparison shall we? Used to be that you'd rent a game for about 3 bucks at your local video rental outlet and proceed to play that game all weekend. Go a bit further back and you may recal spending less than $3 worth of quarters to get several hours of game play from your favorite cabinet at the local arcade. Puppy Games has carved out a comfy little niche for themselves charging around 11 bucks for a few measly hours of so-so game play per title. I'm not one to shout down rehashes and remakes or blindly endorse retro games in their purest original form just to remind people that I played them. I believe that many new games are better simply because they benefit directly from being new and all that it entails. In this case however players really would be better served by dusting off their old games and playing those instead. I can honestly say without any pretensions that you will play them longer and have more fun. In the end (which I promise will come rather quickly if you decide to pick it up anyway) Titan Attacks is a soulless experience that leaves you feeling like your cash has been grabbed. If you absolutely must see for yourself than try to grab it while it's on sale.

I actually enjoy Titan Attacks a lot. There's just not much there to hook you to the game.
I would certainly recommend at least considering Titan Attacks if it seems like something you might like.

Got a 90% discount coupon for this game for crafting a badge so i bought it for just 1 buck. Only played one run so far and ended up getting to wave 34. Really fun game and seems to be well worth the cash i spend for it. Brings back memories from when i was but a kid playing the crap out of my old Atari. This game does well in bringing back good old retro.

Another good thing about it is that it has achievements as well as trading cards. ++

This game is pretty great, very nostalgic if you played any of the old arcade machines. I honestly don't regret spending all the money for it.
