    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!

    This game is pretty cool. The 'commentary track' and the design of tower is the most attractive part.
    Although I am not a fan of old fashion
    This game is pretty cool. The 'commentary track' and the design of tower is the most attractive part.
    Although I am not a fan of old fashion sci-fi, the gameplay is still full of fun and sometimes amazing.
    On the other hand, the combat design is poor and the melee weapons don't show much of difference.

    So you’re basically a hero that is climbing a massive tower to “save the day” doing a bit a platforming and killing a lot of monsters with your weapons. Gameplay wise, this game is nothing new, it is just a top down action game, with a kind of slow paced action if you compare it to for example dead nation or alienation. There is a decent selection of weapons both melee and ranged, and they feel different enough. Graphically speaking, it is not anything out of the ordinary but it is good enough. Although I must say I was quite amazed by the fact that you can look down anytime while climbing the tower and it is amazing how you can still see stuff that are a long way down. Just climbing the tower and just stop to take a look down almost made the game worth playing by itself. In terms of story, you’ll find a very basic one, hero want to save the day by defeating the evil guy with an unexpected curious twist towards the end. I must say tough that the story is structured in a very original way. So the game is supposed to be an actual movie and the director is recording the comments of the DVD, so as you move forward in the game you’ll hear the director and an audio technician speaking a lot, plus what’s happening inside the movie itself. This is an awesome and innovative idea for the narrative, but I felt the dialogue between the director and the technician, which is meant to be funny, was sometimes is a bit tedious. At least that’s what I thought for the first 1-2 hours, then I got used and I thought it was all right, so be ready to maybe get annoyed a bit if you’re not prepared for some cheap humour. Also worth mentioning is that there is a huge variety of different enemies, which helps each level of the tower feel less repetitive, they actually made a decent job at avoiding the repetitive feel.

    Summarising, you want a top down action game that feels a bit different with a funny setting, give this one a try you’ll probably enjoy it, otherwise put your money somewhere else.
