What is Titan Attacks! about?
As the last surviving tank commander on Earth, single-handedly turn back the evil invading alien army, drive back the Titans across the Solar System, and defeat them on their homeworld... Titan Attacks has the same easy-to-learn and addictive gameplay of the classic arcade shoot em up, but is packed full of extras - new features, new strategies, and stylish neo-retro visuals.
Titan Attacks is a small indie game reminiscent of the classic u201eSpace Invadersu201c. But is there more to it than just a copy of a classic? The classic was enriched with many own ideas. After each level you can use the earned money or points to buy new upgrades or items that make your tank even stronger or make it more durable. You get money for every alien spaceship you shoot down, sometimes the aliens fly with a parachute from the crashing ships, you catch such an alien you get extra points. Money and points are very important because the game will be very difficult in the later levels, so hard that many players will surely throw the game quickly back into the corner, here was definitely potential assigned, with a difficulty level control one could have solved this better. The upgrades include special bombs that destroy all alien spaceships on the screen, additional cannons, stronger shots, faster shots and a thicker armor, there are many upgrades and you have to think very carefully in which direction you want to go, otherwise you will quickly become too weak for your opponents. The graphics are simple, but offer great effects, small details and simply look good and fitting. Such a stylized graphic will still look good in many years and will age only very slowly. The opponents are also well designed, there are many different types of opponents and all react differently and you always have to use different tactics to defeat the types of opponents. That's fun and brings variety even when there are opponent types that really annoy you as soon as they appear. The bosses are also great animated and look really powerful, even these need certain tactics again. The feeling of success after a defeated boss opponent comes across really well because the boss opponents are partly really difficult to defeat.
