Fast-paced arcade action game

Quality soundtrack, neat animation, decent game play, simple controls
In Tap Titans for Android, you must do one thing: tap, tap, tap and tap away. By tapping on the screen, your character will attack the titan. Each titan will have a certain amount of health, and depleting it's health by tapping on it will reward you with a gold coin.
As you play for longer, you will amass more gold coins, and the titans will have more health. The coins you have earned can be spent on increased damage, better weapons and equipment, or special abilities that do damage automatically without the need to tap. This kind of approach to gameplay is very similar to the popular Cookie Clicker game, but instead of tapping to bake cookies, you are tapping to bring down monstrous enemies, which is certainly more satisfying.
The variety of different monster types keep this game fresh, and finding a new monster to fight is always quite exciting. The game itself is admittedly a little repetitive. At the end of the day, all you are doing is tapping the screen, with little to no opposition or challenge. Occasionally you will come across a boss titan that must be killed within a certain time limit, but aside from that, the game literally has no difficulty to it.
The lack of challenge is okay though, because the game offers a nice, relaxing way to blow off steam at the end of a hard day, and there are constant monetary goals to work towards. The game itself also looks quite neat, thanks to the unique character and monster art design, alongside the easy to use interface. As far as sound goes, the background music is a nice addition, and the in-game sound effects are exactly what you'd expect from a game of this caliber.
Tap Titans is free to download and play, although there are in-app purchases that allow you to acquire better items at a faster rate than usual.
