Funk of Titans Reviews
Funk of Titans' silly hats and weapons are fun, but this endless runner is missing its groove.
Chris: I would be okay with never hearing "Daddy-o" ever again. But yeah, there aren't many runners on consoles, and the genre deserved better. They can be special at times and at the very least a fun time waster, but funk this.
Few levels provide much of a challenge, so breezing through the entirety of the game in a short period of time is more than likely, though for sub-15-buck price, it's not much of a lost and can be worth it if you're looking for a quick downloadable fix. But surely this blended concoction has sorely missed the bull's-eye of arcade perfection.
Funk Of Titans isn't a bad game but it doesn't do anything interesting either. It is an incredibly easy game to beat, and the gameplay itself is very, very repetitive. Given that the game's focal theme is about music there simply isn't enough variety in the tracks which is a shame. It looks good and plays fine for what it is, but at the same time it's likely that boredom will quickly set in.
Funk of Titans isn't funky, fresh, or even fun. Unless players really want a short, mobile game like experience then they should avoid this game completely.
Funk of the Titans is a game with its heart in the right place, but repetitively boring gameplay and QTE's keep the charm from winning out in the end.
Funk of Titans is not a game that revolutionizes the platformer genre, and it isn't filled with radical new ideas. The levels eventually begin to feel a bit repetitive in nature, and the boss battles are more-or-less carbon copies of one another that provide no real challenge to the player. However, the game also proved to be a relatively enjoyable time, albeit a short one, with its lighthearted theme, and relaxing, swift and fluid gameplay. For platformer fans, it may be just the thing to start off the new year.
Of course, it's not going to blow anyone's socks off, but it's not a bad game either. If you're looking for a fun distraction for about 4 hours and have nine bucks to spare, give it a shot. You may actually have a fun time like I did.
Funk of Titans wants to draw players in with an outlandish, seemingly arbitrary aesthetic that mixes Greek mythology with funk music. Unfortunately, it fails to go all the way with this theme, and ends up a tedious and surprisingly generic auto-runner.
Funk of Titans brings forth a very simple control system and some elements which if explored better, could make a more interesting experience. Unfortunately, the overall impression is that its mechanics are far too repetitive and its level design is flawed, which alongside an irregular frame rate contribute to make this a frustrating and unappealing work.

Had the game mixed up its gameplay a bit – and taken off its endless running shoes – it certainly would've fared a lot better. As it stands, Funk of Titans is a novelty that can only last so long with an audience – and there's nothing funky about that.
Funk of Titans has its moments, but occasional control issues and a lack of innovation keep it from being anything noteworthy.
Funk of Titans is a game full of missed opportunities and it's really a shame. The game has a solid premise that would be good for some great laughs and varied gameplay, it just never seems to deliver.
It's a fun, if shallow, platformer that's held back by poor design beyond that core hook, a sense of humour that's crass more often than it is funny, and plenty of bugs.
Cut it absolutely no slack, Jack
Those in the mood for a fast-paced experience that won't require a massive investment of time for a play session should give Funk of Titans a shot.
Funk of Titans is a solid performer in all categories. It does everything right in a completely original world, but what Funk of Titans excels at is using its simple controls to make it a simple game to pick up and play and a hard game to master.
A few more levels and a little more challenge wouldn't go amiss, but Funk of Titans is a solid endless runner that is well worth your time.
Funk of Titans is a side-scroller platformer that never seems to get out of first gear no matter how hard the player tries
By no means is Funk of Titans a bad game, but it's not the kind of game that will be remembered for much beyond its absurd story and ridiculous mini-game. Funk of Titans is decidedly average, but it is fun to play in small doses. Completing each level without taking a hit while getting the Pegasus head and collecting the one hundred gold vinyl records in each stage can be a great way to kill small amounts of time here and there, but the repetitive nature of the levels and simplicity of the gameplay preclude longer sessions. The frame rate stuttering causes frustration and death, but it is generally unnoticeable in the main stages, leaving fewer reasons to play the already-tedious mini-game. The nagging desire to "One Hundred Percent" Funk of Titans might persist until the task is accomplished, although not because it is a difficult challenge to be overcome: because it is an absurdly easy one that causes a bit of shame for not being completed.
