Awarded "Best War/Tactical Battle Game App" of 2011 by BoardGameGeek!
The epic struggle for domination is now available for the iPad!
Players take the role of a Titan, moving through the constantly changing terrain of the Land with Legions of Ogres, Gargoyles and other monsters of myth and legend. Players move their Legions along specific pathways recruiting creatures to their side and using those Legions to battle their opponents. Battles then take place on separate terrain maps where only the strongest survive!
This classic strategy game supports 2-6 players. The iPad app supports both Local games, with any mix of humans and AI, and Online games against remote opponents.

Outstanding in every way
The developers could not have done a better job with this port of one of the best board games ever created. If you played tabletop Titan, you'll be delighted with this app. If you never played it, there is an exhaustive version of "The Law of Titan" included, and it's well worth the effort to learn the game. The online play works flawlessly and lets you smoothly fit several simultaneous games to your schedule, you'll play with a friendly community of user names that will soon become familiar, and the Elo rating system is way cool. Customer support was great, too, the one time that I had a glitch. They nailed this app in every way possible, and the long-term enjoyment is worth several times what they're charging for it.
Remarkably accurate port of a wonderful game, but the weak AI and questionable dice rolls make it very frustrating. The enemy titans are very aggressive and will often attack with little regard for future strategy. They will also lead the charge even when they have an obvious advantage, leading to cheap victories that aren't very satisfying. This is offset by dice rolls that are obviously weighted in the AI's favor (three Gorgons attack an Angel and get 0 hits; really?) I could forgive the enemy advantage if it happened less often, but when they are constantly attacking at every opportunity and hitting far more often than chance should allow, it's hard to ignore. I have yet to try multiplayer, but if you're hoping for a good single-player challenge you might want to hold off.
This is My Titan
This is the game that I played and enjoyed for years but got away from, now on my iPad! Great graphics and interface, I took away one star because there is no online component.
UPDATE: Now after adding the online play and working out the bugs, the game plays well. I don't understand the online scoring but that's probably on me. I have run some analysis of the dice rolls during battle and the algorithm used shows some issues.
2017 Update: This app just continues to get better, the tweaking of the details rocks!
