A 3D mini-games collection based around politics might not seem like the most obvious choice for a new game but that didn’t stop French game developers Frogames.
Titus is an agoraphobic watchmaker who decides to achieve his dream of becoming the president of Wealland. The player must help Titus achieve that goal by participating in the campaign mode and progressing through five mini arcade games. Each mini game might feel familiar to fans of such titles but it’s the backdrop of Titus that looks set to make it stand out from the crowd.
It’s a pretty cynical campaign simulator all in all with an Election mode to boot, promising low blows and corruption throughout. The entire atmosphere of the game is sombre and gloomy with some very dark undertones. It all feels a little like something Tim Burton could have conjured up. Even the music feels suitably eerie. Fun is promised too though and an encyclopedia of game tips and character descriptions keeps things interesting.
Titus offers an intriguing mix of game types and it’s available now as an universal app and currently on sale at $1.99.
