Titan is a 2D arcade game / puzzle game hybrid.
For some reason, mad professors of the future tend to invent strange entertainment games in which every participant dies. Professor Hybrys' variant is called Titan and involves a ball, a control unit and 80 labyrinths. Your objective is either to destroy all destructible blocks in each level by hitting them with the sphere, or to pilot it to the exit. The black ball is beyond your control; it will bounce straight or diagonally through the labyrinth with constant speed. You move the control unit, a small box, with you are to position in a way that the ball bounces off it in the desired direction. You can also catch the sphere by quickly moving over it, and then release it in a direction of your choice.
The labyrinths not only contain harmless, destructible blocks, but also increasingly difficult hazards. If the sphere or your control unit hit a skull symbol, one of your nine lives is lost. Teleporters exchange the position of you and the ball, wall pieces can be pushed around or destroyed by your unit, floor tiles will grow into walls when you pass over them too often. The high game speed can be slowed down by holding the space key - a very useful option in tricky situations.
Titan mixes an arcade game foundation (requiring quick reflexes and good nerves) with puzzle game elements (requiring logical thinking to beat the complex levels). The challenge is to control the sphere accurately, yet indirectly.
An early game by Titus, Titan is a fairly unorthodox Arkanoid / Breakout clone that unfortunately doesn't play as well as the concept would lead you to believe.
The best way to describe Titan is to think of Blockout playing field stretched in all four directions, so that it becomes a two-dimensional playing field (with width and height) instead of one-dimensional (with only height). Instead of controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen that bounces the ball up and down, in Titan you control a block that can move in any direction on the screen. Your task is to bounce the ball to knock off all the blocks in the playing field. This is much more frustrating than it sounds, because it is often difficult to determine which way the ball will go once you bump into it. The ball can also get stuck in a corner, in which case it's painfully difficult to knock it out. Overall, an original idea for a Blockout clone that doesn't play very well... unfortunately.
