Observations 22 November 2012 Wall Street Titan lets you be a giant deathbot fighting bankers The 99% has 100% of the massive robots. Sign up for our weekly email * Print HTML Wall Street Titan (iPhone/iPad, 69p) lets you play as a robot stomping the fat cats who caused the global financial crisis and defending Occupy Wall Street. The, er, plot is that the bankers have built a gigantic robot to clear out the occupiers, but then Anonymous hacks the robot and changes its mission. Much crushing and explosions ensue. As for the game itself, it's a fun tube/toilet distraction (yes that is how I categorise games). Tap on the "suits", avoid the protestors, and pick up power-ups like pepper spray and shields. Any suits who escape call cops, and eventually tanks, who show up and start shooting back. As everything piles up, it gets harder and harder to keep the protestors alive, and eventually all you care about is keeping your own giant deathbot from being taken down. All things must end, though, and when you do get blown up, stars are awarded for objectives which you've completed. Then you start all over again. It's got Facebook integration (which doesn't seem to add that much) and three stages in all. Eventually, you end up stomping the White House. Which is probably worth 69p. › Social media in perspective A screenshot from Wall Street Titan. Alex Hern is a technology reporter for the Guardian. He was formerly staff writer at the New Statesman.
