Creator Matt Thorson has achieved a ludicrous standard of gameplay in Towerfall Ascension, one that seduces you instantly and jettisons all thoughts of million-poly character models and full-performance capture from your gaming consciousness.
One of the best - if not the best - competitive couch playstation games I know. It is great to play against friends and for us never gets stale as there are so many stages and modifications to select. You can basically change everything and gameplay has a lot of customisation options. Overall a great game I am very happy with! Only an "no headjump stump"-modificator would be really nice!
Like an arrow, local multiplayer cannot reach people further than the neighborhood, but that doesn't make it inefficient, particularly through close combat. Hence Towerfall Ascension proves how powerful archery can be, provided that it relies on a masterful execution and a sizeable army. With such a large choice of weapons and a clever use of terrain, the most desperate situations can be overcome, even alone. Thanks to warlord Matt Thorson - the creator of this amazing battle alchemy - here's a great reason to renew local rivalries and appreciate all kinds of human relations, friendly or not.
For those who want to play alone Towerfall Ascension is a smart, fun
and challenging puzzle game that sadly won’t last too long. On the
contrary it becomes a nearly magical experience together with three
friends. When it comes to deep party games that are easy to pick up
this is one of the best ones.
TowerFall: Ascension is a small and shiny gem. This indie game offers lots of fun both with single player and multiplayer modes due to its fast paced gameplay and its simple but smart mechanics. If you're looking for a clever, fun and entertaining offline multiplayer experience, you can't miss this one.
This is perhaps one of the greatest multiplayer games ever created. Before discovering Towerfall, Bomberman 2 was my favorite multiplayer couch co-op type game. But towerfall has definitely replaced that game as my new all time favorite. This game is a masterpiece. I have absolutely zero complaints, because I truly think the game is perfect. The controls are wonderful. The characters, weapons, customizations, etc. everything about this game is well thought out and crafted so well. Truly a king among multiplayer games!
I love local multiplayer game. I prefer to play against my friends on my couch than online where mr nobody is your opponent. Maybe i'm coming from an old generation, but Towerfall is clearly a game in my chord. I don't like the aesthetic, but the gameplay is solid and funny.
Compared to other local multiplayer is a little bit repetitive, but it's an overall good game.
Conclusion: If you want to have some fun with your friends for some nights it's the title for you, but it will become boring after a while.
Towerfall Ascencion is good **** is a deception because there is no online multiplayer. Buy additional controllers is expensive..
My overall score is 4
SummaryTowerFall is an archery combat platformer for up to 4 players. It's a local party game centering around hilarious, intense versus matches. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but combat is fast and fierce. It's best played competitively with friends, cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other.
