As reported in XBLA Fans’ review of Funk of Titans, which was released today on the Xbox One, the price of this title was believed to be $8.99. If you went to purchase the title today, though, you may be surprised to find it priced at $12.49. While this created some confusion for gamers, and even some other gaming websites, XBLA Fans contacted A Crowd of Monsters public relations representative for clarification.
Funk of Titans was developed and published on Xbox One by A Crowd of Monsters. It was released on January 9, 2015 for $12.49. A copy was provided by A Crowd of Monsters for review purposes.
It’s motivational speaking at its finest, and it comes from main character Perseus, to whom Zeus has assigned the task of defeating the Music Titans. The player is sent to clear three different worlds of music consisting of Pop, Rap and Rock. At first glance of screenshots and trailers of the game, I assumed this was another traditional platformer in which the player runs and jumps and attacks on command. Nope. Funk of Titans is actually a runner-type game in which the character automatically runs, and the player commands the jumping and combat. This revelation completely changed my outlook on the game. Let’s dig into the finer details of how it did so.
Time to boogie down.
Funk of Titans celebrates that funk is the music of the Gods. Zeus created funk and the people love it. However, the power balance is being shifted as the Pagan Titans are trying to takeover by using other types of music to brainwash the people. All hope isn’t lost though as Zeus sends Perseus in the name of funk to defeat all the Music Titans.
Featured in this game are more than 40 stages of side-scrolling platforming in three different worlds of music: Pop, Rap, and Rock. Perseus will use his Funk-Fu to show the Music Titans whose boss. Funk of Titans arrives on Xbox One on January 9.
If you’re lucky, you might even see a rocket stick with a horse head.
