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!
On the iPad, 2-6 players can play this strategic game in a Hotseat scenario or they can play against cunning AI in a Local game.

Avoid if Playing Solo - Consider Otherwise
If you want to play against other humans, by all means try this out. The solo play I have to recommend against.
I can only speak from personal experience and I have been assured by the developers that the AI use the same dice roll generations as the humans players. But after a large numbers of played games, I must attest to some pretty poor battle tactics (especially on the 1 and 2 star settings) and huge amounts of frustration as the computer players win game after game with freaky dice rolls or just enough bad luck on the human’s part and a measure of good luck on the computer player side.
Lucky and unlucky dice rolls are a part of titan but it should even out over time, something I am not seeing anything close to in this game. I have seen strings of 10+ games back to back where a human’s titan is killed off primarily by luck and incredible rolls that should be pretty rare coming up multiple times in several games.
Examples 40 dice from trolls never seeing a 6, and a gorgon striking at titans killing them with 6 hits down a skill factor just to add to the pain of the situation.
Best of luck to those playing, hopefully you won’t see the string of rolls I regularly saw before I quit playing.
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.
If You Love Titan, DON'T Waste Your Money!
As someone who has played Titan for over 30 years, I jumped at the chance to try this. After playing it, I can say that this app has a single purpose- it allows you to play with your friends remotely.
The app should not be advertised as a 1-player game as the AI is reckless and poor on both the strategic and tactical levels. It attempts to correct this by horribly skewing the die rolls thereby removing one of the key elements in the game. It is not an entertaining experience at all.
I deleted it off of my iPad and figured I'd wait until they fixed some of the issues. They haven't, so my opinion stays the same.
