    TowerFall: Ascension might not be complicated or feature-rich, but the instant pick-up-and-play fun of its local co-op arena battles make this the best game in the PS4’s fledgling library.

    Still, I'd only recommend buying it if you happen to have a second PS4 controller lying around — it's just that designed for local multiplayer. Then again, if you're looking for a game that single-handedly justifies the purchase of a second controller, Towerfall: Ascension is probably it.

    TowerFall Ascension’s blend of competitiveness and customization provides you with endless ways to have an incredible time. Just remember to bring some friends along for the ride.

    TowerFall Ascension is a game in the purest form of the word. Easy to learn, hard to master. Everyone can jump in and everyone can enjoy themselves.

    If you remember when "multiplayer" meant friends and a multitap, Towerfall: Ascension will fill you with glee. With its healhty dose of old-school adversarial local multiplayer, fans of games like Powerstone or Super Smash Bros should already have Towerfall: Ascension in their libraries.

    Someone needs to make the arcade machine version of this.

    The game focuses on the multiplayer options, up to four players at once. If you are not going to play it with someone, it's not worth buying it.

The co-op mode provides a a Mario-like world progression and a challenge that feels like an actual challenge, not a brutal punishment. smart AI and tight spaces make for frantic and enjoyable co-op experiences.

Almost felt asleep while playing it. The graphics look like the game was developed in the last century. Including a character which resembles Anita Sarkesesian in their next dlc addon or whatever they are doing is just a pathetic move to get this game into the media.
