"A single-screen platform brawler that’s about as good as the genre has ever been—in versus or wave-survival mode."

1.1.19 - Balance + Stability Update

I'm experimenting with some new content for TowerFall, but I took a break to put together this quick update. It's mostly about tying up loose ends, on both the design and tech sides of the game :)

We've got one new variant: Regenerating Shields. It should help beef up the 3v1 juggernaut matches that seem to be popular lately. I'm excited to see what else it gets used for.

Balance changes include some tweaks to the Backfire levelset, and an important change to how Bottomless Treasure works that should improve 1v1 tournament play.

For stability I've improved the replay recording to help performance on weaker machines. See below for details!

Thanks for playing, and keep the feedback coming.

-Matt

The full changelog:

Gameplay:

  • New variant: Regenerating Shields
  • Powerups spawned from the bottomless treasure chest will now timeout and despawn after 5 seconds
  • Rebalanced a few Backfire versus mode level layouts
  • Removed Start with Super Bomb Arrows from the random variants pool

Stability:
  • Went back to using XNA on Windows
  • Added option to set replay recording mode: Use GPU, Use CPU, or Off. Use GPU is now the default (was previously done on CPU) and should be faster on most systems
  • Added option to disable controller rumble
  • Added option to disable controller discovery, and removed startup argument that did the same thing. If you were using the startup argument, you'll have to go to the options menu to disable it again
  • Fixed the Matt Makes Games intro being out of sync with the music when vsync is disabled

1.1.18 - Mac and Linux launch + New Variants + Shirts!

We launched TowerFall Ascension on Mac and Linux today! We also added 5 new variants, most based on player suggestions.

Plus Fangamer released official TowerFall shirts and stickers this week!

The new Variants:
Speed Boots - Run 40% faster! Works great with Encumbrance as well
Regenerating Arrows - If you're out of arrows, wait 1.5 seconds and you'll magically gain one
Anti-Gravity Arrows - Arrows never fall, and always seek
Small Quivers - Reduces your max arrow count to 3
Infinite Drills - Drill arrows will drill through every surface they hit, forever

Now we're up to 75 variants :D As always your feedback has been super helpful - have fun!

-Matt

The full changelog:

New Stuff:

  • Mac and Linux support! Thanks to Ethan Lee
  • Added five new variants: Regenerating Arrows, Infinite Drills, Anti-Gravity Arrows, Small Quivers, Speed Boots

Changes:
  • On Windows, switched the game to SDL2 and MonoGame (thanks to Ethan Lee). This should lower the system requirements, improve gamepad support, and help with porting. You can still play the XNA version by switching to the 'xna' game branch

Fixes:
  • Fixed the new variant '!' on the variants menu not drawing with the correct transparency

Análises

“the new gold standard in the local multiplayer renaissance”
9.5 / 10 – Polygon

“I’m loath to christen a new classic before the sheen has worn off, but TowerFall seems for all the world to be headed toward that hallowed ground. It may be straightforward, yes, but it’s also aggressively focused, humbly spectacular, and nearly unimpeachable in its design. To use that most dangerous, most reductive of words, it’s fun.”
10 / 10 – EGM

“TowerFall succeeds at everything it attempts so spectacularly that, we're convinced, it is destined to be remembered as one of the best multiplayer games of all time.”

Sobre este jogo

TowerFall Ascension is the definitive version of the hit archery combat game. Inspired by classics from the golden age of couch multiplayer, it's a 4-player local party game centering around hilarious, intense versus matches. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but hard to master and combat is fierce. Loot treasure chests for game-changing power-ups, master the art of catching arrows out of the air, or descend on your foes and stomp them into submission. TowerFall is best played competitively with friends, cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other.

New in Ascension is the 1- or 2-player co-op Quest mode. Players work together, fighting off a variety of monsters and enemy archers across the land of TowerFall. It's a new adventure to explore when you don't have more friends handy to square off against.

New features in TowerFall Ascension include:
  • Brand new 1- or 2-player co-op Quest mode
  • 50 additional Versus arenas, for a total of 120 unique maps
  • More game-changing power-ups, such as Drill Arrows that burrow through walls
  • 4 new unlockable, playable archers, for a total of 8
  • A huge list of variants to customize your matches - a total of 75 ways to mix things up
  • Plenty of hidden secrets and surprises to discover with your friends

A game that holds it's own even if you're friends stop coming around to play! Get this game!!

Singleplayer has essentially a time-rush and adventure mode, but with several levels and challenges that's fun to come back to, keep your skills from getting rusty.

There's no multiplayer online. But man, is it good when you DO play with up to 3 other ppl. And heck, you can even do adventure mode together; or fight each other with monsters spawning!!

Fun music to match the tone yet also the story, variations of gameplay in options, things to unlock and search for. It's a damn good game 9.5/10.

IF ONLY there were online, it'd be flawless lol

This is an absolutely smashing game. Yes, it's only local multiplayer, but that shouldn't be a problem if you actually have a life and have some friends to play with. ;) That's how it's meant to be played; with people sitting next to you to shout at.

What's really awesome as well is the autobalance feature; even if you absolutely suck (like I do!) the game will still help you get back to even with shields and extra arrows, making the game that much more fun to play.

Last note: it really needs controllers; if you just have mouse and keyboard, this game is not going to be so great for you.

Very fun and challenging, works best with a controller.
Reminds me of Mario 3 Battle mode with more depth.

I'll start with the bad because it's a short list:
* Controls cannot be customized
* No netplay
* Steep difficulty curve
* Surprisingly high system requirements, given that it's a sprite-based one-screen platformer.
* Not much of a story

The good: everything else. To be more specific, the game controls are smooth and intuitive, the game has a lot of content (enemies, items, levels, playable characters), is a BLAST in multiplayer - be it co-op or vs. - has a pleasing visual style, a neat cast of characters and just enough unlockable content to give you a sense of accomplishment when you find it without making your scrounge around for secrets and collectibles. I got it cheap in a Steam sale, but I would have been just as satisfied if I had payed full price.

This is hence down one of the most entertaining local multiplayer games I've ever played. Make sure you have some Xbox 360 controllers and some friends.

Easily the best thing to happen to my living room since Crash Team Racing. If you have at least two friends/enemies at least 9 years old that you can play with at home, then buy this game. Buy this game full price. At $14.99 it is really undervalued.

Muito bom!

Jogabilidade excelente. Gráficos bem feitos (pra quem gosta desse estilo pixelado). Mecânica simples e desafiadora.

Um otimo jogo. Uma grande surpresa o nivel de diversao proporcionado por um jogo que aparentemente eh simples, e que a medida que voce joga percebe que eh justamente o contrario. Muito bem elaborado. E alem de tudo, renasce uma experiencia que os jogos da atualidade nao oferecem mais, a oportunidade de reunir os amigos p jogar 4p

TowerFall é um jogo obrigatório para a sua biblioteca de jogos.
Com uma mecânica simples, o jogo se torna ofensivo, defensivo, desafiador e favorável para o jogador.

O modo singleplayer fica por conta de inimigos que aparecem em ondas numa arena única, assim que completado todas as ondas, você pode prosseguir para a próxima arena. A dificuldade foi trabalhada de um jeito impecável, você sente a tensão que o jogo impõe a cada nível que você avança. Todos querem a sua cabeça.

O modo multiplayer é diversão certa. É com esse modo que o jogo consegue arrancar umas gargalhadas e momentos marcantes. Quanto mais amigos jogando, melhor, claro.

Não existe problema para quem joga sem um controle, mas eu recomendo muito o uso. Além do jogo óbviamente se tornar mais prático para jogar, facilita o multiplayer com vários jogadores.

TowerFall é simples, rápido, divertido e belo. Um jogo que é muito mais do que belos pixelarts.
