“The touchscreen controls work well, and even though the game only offers four levels, there’s a ton of fun here for any fan of the genre.”

Run-and-Gun Shooter Star Titan Now Available on the App Store & Google Play
Take the fight to the Terran Conglomerate for only $1.99
KENT, England – Nov. 14, 2019 – Dark Pyre Interactive’s Star Titan has launched on iOS and Android! A premium, side-scrolling run-and-gun game built from the ground up for touchscreens, Star Titan pays homage to ‘80s and ‘90s mecha anime with impeccable 2.5D graphics, multi-level combat, and four entirely distinct levels featuring atmospheric lighting and particle effects. The game also boasts an energetic original soundtrack by David Rose – and terrifying enemies such as Anubis, the Interceptor, and the massive Lava Boss (a.k.a. “The Beast”)!
In the not so distant future, humanity has charted most of the galaxy with the aid of an alien species known as the Muranians. However, a human military organization – the Terran Conglomerate – seeks to rule over ALL other races, subjugating their former allies and slaughtering millions in its path. Unable to ignore these atrocities, top human scientists and former military personnel smuggle Muranian refugees to a distant planet where they use their skills to build giant war machines to put an end to this injustice and reclaim the galaxy in the name of peace. These majestic machines are known as the Titans.
Choose Your Weapon
Star Titan makes two distinct mechs available to players at launch: The lean-and-mean killing machine, Phoenix – and the sturdy, larger-than-life Behemoth: Phoenix can fly, is light on its feet – and moves FAST. Behemoth, a hulking figure towering above all other Titans, can take and deal damage like nobody’s business!
Perform well, and you’ll earn credits to upgrade your Titan roster with enhanced health and damage output – and unlock several alternate skins. Weapons such as Behemoth’s machine gun, cannon, and laser – and Phoenix’s SMG, homing, and spread shot – are available in every level.
“I grew up playing run-and-gun shooters like Contra and Metal Slug and was surprised to find that the genre wasn’t really a thing on mobile platforms. So I decided to create my own with Star Titan,” says Omid Karimpour, Managing Director & Co-Founder at Dark Pyre Interactive. “Knowing that the mobile market is highly competitive, we spent the time and resources to make Star Titan a high-end, premium mobile game with top-notch 3D models, stunning worlds, and challenging encounters – including an unlockable Hard Mode for the hardcore gamers out there.”
“Like Omid, 16-bit run-and-gun shooters are in my blood. Star Titan was an opportunity to really go all out with poster-worthy concept art, intricate character designs, and even some hefty world-building,” says Andreas Karpasitis, Creative Director & Co-Founder at Dark Pyre Interactive. “The run up to launch has been exciting! I hope mobile gamers take a chance on Star Titan and experience the thrill of futuristic run-and-gun gameplay on their smartphones and tablets.”
