1912: Titanic Mystery
If you were looking for a hidden object game that features being on board the Titanic ship during the dreadful voyage, look no further than 1912: Titanic Mystery.
You'll be set out to search for clues and discover the solution to puzzles in order to find out the hidden details behind the sinking of the ship. Set in the year 1912 just before the famous collision with the iceberg, you're set off to explore the ship and interact with people to obtain information in order to solve the mystery.
If you're a fan of hidden object games or are looking to learn more about the history of this ship's truth, you'll want to check out 1912: Titanic Mystery.
Revenge Of The Titanic
Developed by the indie studio Ape Studios, this mobile game features the Titanic in a fashion you may not be used to. Instead of being hit by the iceberg, you're set out to destroy all of them in this arcade shooter.
Revenge Of The Titanic doesn't take itself too seriously and is a marvel to pick up and play. We enjoyed seeing the icebergs just explode after taking them out with the bullets fired from the main ship.
If you're looking for a light video game that's easy to spend a couple of minutes when you're short on time like playing on the bus, check out Revenge Of The Titanic.
Hidden Expedition: Titanic
Another hidden object adventure game made our list of games about the Titanic and this time we have the wonderful team at Big Fish Games to thank for Hidden Expedition: Titanic.
You'll play as a member of the Hidden Expedition team, sent out to search out the sinking of the Titanic ship. Along the way you'll search for clues and solve puzzles to uncover the mystery that lead to the disaster causing the ship to sink.
Filled with elements of adventure and hidden objects, it almost feels like one of those scavenger hunt games while looking through the different areas of the ship.
Originally available for PC and Mac OS, it's also been brought over to the Nintendo 3DS which was an odd choice for a handheld game about the Titanic.
Titanic: Der Tauchfahrt-Simulator
When talking about simulator based PC games, one you might want to consider as the English speaking audience might know it as Dive to the Titanic. Putting you in the perspective where you'll use a submarine to explore the interior areas of the famous Titanic ship.
As you make your way taking photos and submersing yourself into the realism the gameplay provides. It's designed to be more of an educational game giving you a realistic experience for those who are interested in understanding the Titanic's history.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
When it comes to games about the Titanic, we'd bet that first person shooter Call of Duty wouldn't be the first game that came to mind.
What's better than the premise set off in the famous RMS ship where a zombie invasion plagues the ship and you have to fight off hordes of enemy zombies throughout the level.
That's exactly what the map called "Voyage of Despair" has to offer. Although only a small section of the zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has you walking through the ship, it was still nice to see the Titanic being paid homage in a Call of Duty game.
Duke Nukem: Zero Hour
Lace up your boots, your favorite R rated time travelling hero is back in Duke Nukem: Zero Hour. This time, Duke will time travel his way along a variety of locations on the earth throughout the past and present.
One of those locations as an unlockable feature is the Titanic where you and your trusty Uzis are taking out bad guys along side the corridors of the famous ship.
You'll have to bring out your Nintendo 64 for this one and hopefully you have your expansion pack handy in order to get better graphics on Duke's journey.
Titanic: Adventure Out of Time
This classic point-and-click adventure released in 1996 for PC and Mac is set on the British passenger liner ship that sank in 1912.
You make your way as a secret agent set out to prevent the series of events from taking place by solving puzzles and interacting with the members aboard the ship.
The voice acting in the FMV videos is downright funny at times with how poorly it has aged. At this point, you'll have to have to put things into perspective that a lot of time has passed since it's release.
Based on the decisions that you make, the gameplay does provide alternative endings and storylines that you'll be able to discover while playing.
Search for the Titanic
Back in 1989, some DOS games were rather primitive. Search for the Titanic was one of those DOS titles that was actually ported to the C64 later on.
In this naval simulation game where you're set off to explore the massive earth's ocean, buying different ships in search for the famous Titanic shipwreck.
Ironically enough, this game came out just years after Robert Ballard famously discovered the lost RMS Titanic wreck in 1985 so we think this might have something to do with the popularity of the game at this time.
Titanic: Honor and Glory
This independent video game project is based on the Unreal Engine 4 and does a wonderful job in recreating this great ship.
Although still under development, the goal is to give you all of the famous areas of the ship, from the crew quarters to all of the public rooms that you would have explored if you were originally on the ship.

Titanic: Fall Of A Legend
In a game where you'll go through the last possible events leading up to the famous ocean liner before it sank into oblivion comes to you on PC.
The gameplay will provide quite the atmospheric experience as you hear the waves wash away while strolling through the deck at the hull of the ship.
As you make your way into one of the rescue boats you'll be able to see one of the most iconic sinking moments in gaming's history. You can also grab a friend and experience this in an online co-op gameplay mode.
Hidden Mysteries: Titanic
Taking you all the way back to the Wii is this point and click adventure game where you're taken back from buying a ticket to board the RMS Titanic and navigating your way through the British passenger liner.
We found ourselves laughing at some of the characters here. The voice acting is worthy of a playthrough if you're looking for something to poke fun at.
The puzzles is where Hidden Mysteries shines. They're difficult to make it through if you don't have a guide handy. After completing the game you'll unlock a bonus level which is quite the added touch.
Hidden Mysteries: Titanic offers great replay value considering the choices you make determine the outcome of the storyline with the branching paths it features.
Since it's release on the Wii, there is also a PC release you can pick up and play.
