       titanion - 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

       The game in  itself  is  quite  simple,  but  with  such  graphics  and
       playability that it’s a great experience to play.
