Pocket Titans Review
- Moving the board instead of the characters is inspired.
- Access to multiple Titans encourages experimentation.
- Nice chunky art style.
- Constantly having to tap though dialogue mid-battle gets tedious.
Pocket Titans is easy to pick-up and play, but its clever movement system and upgradeable classes give you a good incentive to stick around.

Pocket Titans is a turn based strategy title that's easy for anyone to pick up and play, and utilizes a unique control system.
In most turn based strategy games, you use movement and action points to put your character in the most advantageous position possible, allowing you attack your enemy while avoiding repercussions.
This priciple still applies to Pocket Titans, but instead of moving players, you move the landscape. Each stage takes place on a five by five square grid. Each row and column can be shifted horizontally and vertically in order to move titans, enemies, and any villagers or obstacles scattered around the map.
Each titan specialises in either ranged or close combat attack, with the option to unleash a weaker secondary attack if the enemy is still within range.
The game becomes a geographic tug-of-war between you and your enemy, each vying for the best position in order to inflict the most damage. You also have to factor in you opponent's next move. However, given the slgihtly daffy enemy AI, this is more of a concern in multiplayer.
Any combination of of the eight titans have the power to get you though the game. Naturally, as they level up and gain new weapons and armour, you will start to favour some over others. Even though you can grind out experience by replaying levels, or use gold to purchase better equipment, it's not essential, and refusing to do so won't ruin your enjoyment.
Pocket Titans is aiming for a casual market; players who aren't well-versed in the turn-based strategy genre. And as an introduction to turn-based gaming, it succeeds admirably. Even those who love their strategy games should find some novelty in winning wars by literally moving the earth..
