Attack on Titan is an Android RPG-based game on the popular anime series of the same name. The gacha mechanics, turn-based combat, and daily tasks will look familiar to any mobile gamer. You’ll relive all the best plot points of the series, battling the titans and meeting friends along the way.
Save the world
Anime and manga are the popular source material for games. Titles such as Dragon Ball FighterZ and Code Vein are excellent examples of everything a high-quality narrative can accomplish combined with an exciting set of mechanics.
Attack of Titan is a bit more simple but has the same flair. It lets you immerse yourself in the story alongside Eren, the protagonist, and his companions. You’re tasked to save humanity from the deadly, man-eating titans.
The game uses the Season 2 plot as a base, with 37 playable characters. Apart from the blood-curdling battles, you get to experience a ‘slice of life’ story, strengthening your bonds. The more friends you have, the better your party becomes on the next mission.
Combat is straightforward but engaging. You’ll create a team of six soldiers and power them up to fight the titans. Each character has a unique ability set, requiring some strategic thinking to ensure success on your end.
As you complete missions and perform daily tasks, you’ll also level up. Once you reach level 20, you’ll start gathering Titan Cards, which let you use some of the monsters to your advantage.
While the graphics aren’t perfect, they feel exciting and familiar. There’s a fun mixture of anime-style drawings, for your daily interactions, and three-dimensional monsters during the fight scenes. This makes the game quite enjoyable for long-term watchers.
Everything is logically oriented and easy to control from your touch screen. Newcomers won’t have issues learning how to play.
Overall, Attack on Titan could be better, with more gameplay variety and sophisticated combat mechanics. Still, it’s an engaging game for fans.
