Ever wanted to kill a giant Attack On Titan-style? Well now’s your chance. This browser-based fan game, Titan Hunter (巨人の猎手 ), allows you to do just that.
Armed with two swords and a gas-powered grapple-belt you fly through the city, trying to slash at the titans’ weak spot: the back of their necks.
However, if this game accurately presents what it takes to bring down a titan, it seems I would be dead within seconds of the start of my first battle. Over the course of the first half hour I played this game, I managed to kill just two titans -- one small and one mid-size -- while my body count was in the dozens.
This is mainly due to how difficult the grapple belt is to control. At a distance, your two grapple guns shoot at opposing 45-degree angles. This is perfect for when you are flying down a street with buildings on either side -- but not so much when only one has a grapple target building within range.
Then, when you get close enough, your grapple guns suddenly fire straight, allowing you to scale buildings -- or titans -- with relative ease. Of course, if a titan is facing you when you try that, you’ll likely end up as its next meal.
The graphics are rudimentary, to say the least -- with the buildings being grayish-brown blobs and the titans being little more than peach-colored ones -- but as it is still a work-in-progress, that’s more or less forgivable. And while difficult to control, it’s still a fun little game to play around with -- and like anything, it gets easier with practice.
