Titan Attacks! has no Eren or Armin, but delicious retro goodness


10:30 AM on 05.08.2014



Indie developer Puppygames' Titan Attacks! was released yesterday for PS4, PS3, and Vita, and it's a peppy throwback shooter that you should pay attention to. Incorporating a smart retro aesthetic with addictive combos and tight mechanics, it reminds me a bit of Arkedo's Big Bang Mini, only a lot less ornate.

It's more than it appears to be, with high scores awarded to players to rack up combos and make more skillful shots over those who prefer to simply wing it and shoot everything that moves. Gameplay is skewed toward individuals customizing their own experiences, but that doesn't mean you can't just unload a fresh batch of bullets and copious amounts of lasers on the competition.

Titan Attacks! is available now for $11.99, though it might end up costing you a lot more time than money in the end, given its addictive nature. It's also been available on Steam for quite some time, so check it out there if that's more your thing.

I played a bunch of bizarre first-person shooters so you don't have to

You remember Superhot, don't you? It's a first-person shooter in which time progresses at a normal speed only when you move. Or how about Receiver? It had somewhat realistic gun handling that made for a rewarding experience. ...more

The Blue Flamingo is a ridiculously adorable shmup

Swedish game studio Might and Delight really knows how to make games that stand out visually. Its attractive-looking paper art style on the Shelter series is, in my mind, unmistakable. I can recognize the stud...more
