Strike down super high-velocity swooping insects
Strike down super high-velocity swooping insects. Fixed shooter in the good old days, 'Titanion'.
Titanion is an abstract shooter game. While we fire with one button, the other one acts as a tractor ray to attract the enemies and take them to the combat line.
The game in itself is quite simple, but with such graphics and playability that it's a great experience to play.
These command-line options are available:
Set the brightness of the screen. (n = 0 - 100, default = 100)
-res x y
Set the screen resolution to (x, y). (default = 640, 480)
Stop the sound.
Set the volume of the background music. (n = 0 - 128, default = 100)
Set the volume of the sound effects. (n = 0 - 128, default = 100)
Run in windowed mode.
Run in full-screen mode.
Exchange the shot button and the beam button.
Add a trail effect to enemies.
Stop an intentional slowdown.
Attack patterns of enemies randomly change with each play.

You can capture enemies with the capture beam. To fire the capture beam, a capture beam energy (displayed in the left panel) should be full. The capture beam energy increased when you destroy an enemy. Captured enemies are lined up beside the player and counterattack to other enemies. Your ship is invincible when you are firing the capture beam.

You can use the capture beam anytime, but your ship isn't invincible while firing.
+ MODERN mode - Provocation beam
The provocation beam forces an enemy to fire more bullets and you can earn more bullet multiplier bonus. You have to release the shot button to fire the provocation beam.
