    Deadly Tower of Monsters hands you a lot of love in a single package, giving gaming and movie fans plenty of reason for more than one showing.

    It’s not a very long game at all; I’d clocked it in about seven hours, but those are the best, most entertaining seven hours I’ve had with the PlayStation 4 controller in my hands for a very long time.

    This is a great surprise, a game that within its simplicity, manages to be fun and never gets boring. What else can we ask for?

    Despite being short and not too challenging, TDToM is a wonderful tribute to the sci-fi movies of the '50s. The gameplay is a nice mix of hack'n'slash, dual stick shooting and platform, fun and enough varied to keep you entertained.

    Fans of cult sci-fi films and/or Mystery Science Theater 3000 will get quite the kick out of The Deadly Tower of Monsters.

    I commend ACE Team for trying to come up with something that’s authentic and clever. But the developer only got The Deadly Tower of Monsters halfway right. The excellent premise and likeable characters outshine the streamlined gameplay.

    B-movie by name and B-movie by nature, but there’s still enjoyment to be had with the endearingly rubbish enemies and fun but vapid combat.

    First I had purchased this game on Steam. Sometime after, I got it for free on PSN. I must say, it was a positive surprise.
    It´s really funny
    First I had purchased this game on Steam. Sometime after, I got it for free on PSN. I must say, it was a positive surprise.
    It´s really funny game, with nice gameplay and cool graphics. I could not put it away until reaching the ending, and even after I kept playing for the platinum.
    Oh, and the director comments are priceless!

Жалко русского перевода нет, ничего не понятно. А так, для любителей кинематографа это шедевр, да и проходится интересно. Тут даже геймплей не однообразен! Клацая на крестик не пройдёшь, иногда нужно покумекать ( может английский надо было учить...). Expand

    The draw of The Deadly Tower of Monsters is the authentically B-movie level effects, including jerky claymation dinosaurs and bats flying onThe draw of The Deadly Tower of Monsters is the authentically B-movie level effects, including jerky claymation dinosaurs and bats flying on visible strings. The actual game play is standard top down shooter stuff with some minor platforming. Behind the entire games runs an audio track from the "director" of the B-movie. One can imagine a more engrossing experience but this is a budget title with budget expectations. Given that, it's pretty clever stuff, with each death being commented on as a deleted scene made to confuse the press, an obvious mistake, or the unfortunate death of the original lead actor. It reminds me a little of Call of Juarez: Gunglsinger, except that game was a budget title FPS. The addition of a weapon and ability upgrade system in Deadly Tower of Monsters seem entirely unnecessary given the game's length and scope. All in all, it is a brisk arcade experience with some humor and neat ideas. Seeing as it's the November freebie for PS Plus members, I recommend trying it. Expand

It has some nice mechanics to it, and it feels very fun to play, it's kinda like an rpg shooter where you climb a tower and pick up upgrades for your weapons along the way. The game doesn't take itself in a serious way, which makes for some hilarious moments on the way to the top Expand
