Funk of Titans
Top Critic Average
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.
