Solar Eclipse is an arcade shooter in which the action is presented from behind a combat ship rushing deep into the screen. The task of the players is to eliminate all obstacles and enemies, such as watchtowers and various flying vehicles. At the same time, they must avoid projectiles being fired at their side, e.g. at the right time using the rotational speed assigned to both trigger points. Some levels have several branches, where it is possible to choose further route. Traditionally, at the end of each board there is a more dangerous boss, usually much bigger than ordinary opponents.
Solar Eclipse is a three-dimensional production, which is distinguished by FMV inserts with the participation of actors. They appear not only during history interviews, but also during missions, sharing comments, informing about dangers and engaging in background dialogues. Outside Europe the game was released under the title Titan Wars.
