Over dit spel

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

This game is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ delight. It's got fast paced multiplayer that feels easy to learn but difficult to master, and the single player challenges are well designed and have perfect difficulty scaling.

This game is fantastic. The co-op adventure mode is a lot of fun, and the VS. mode is a blast - especially with 3 or 4 people. No online gameplay is a letdown, but this game shines with some friends & a couch.

Best party game since Smash Bros. Maybe even better for parties than Smash because it's easier to pick up and play competitively.

Just an awesome game for casual and other players ! You always find a cool way to dodge or attack your opponents, even if you played a lot of matches on the same maps.

Simple, precise, and open to a wide and vast room of skills, playstyles and A LOT of fun.

This game has everything right for what it was supossed to be, really easy mechanics, but a lot of techniques to master in battle, which make itboth good for casual and competitive fast placed play, and despite having relatively few content, its trials, quest modes and a high number of variants for versus fill the necesary for this to make you play a lot of time.

Not much to say, the perfect couch game. 10/10

Old school addicting and though (at times frustrating) game if you play the quest alone or with a friend.
Amazingly funny when you play versus with some friends in local co-op. I recommend this as a party game.

Pros:
Amazingly fun local co-op.
Modifiers and different game modes add lots of variety / replayability and the ability to level playing field between new and experienced players.
Solo campaign is a fun and challenging experience.
Animations, art, and sound are really polished, further enhancing the awesomeness.
Slow motion replays of that unbelivable last round.
Amazingly fun local co-op.

Cons:
Matt Thorson hasn't made another game yet.
I can't get enough of this game.

Tips:
You can play with the keyboard, but you really should use controllers if you can.
Hook up your PC to the TV and play on the couch with three friends for maximum enjoyment.

If you are going to let yourself miss out on a game as good as Towerfall simply because of your hatred of feminism then congratulations, you've succeeded in ruining gaming for yourself!

Wish there was a way to play online even for a few matches daily or something along those lines, but i love this game. the combination of archery trick shots and monsters . The art style is amazing for my taste .Playing head to head to head to head is so much fun with extra goodies on even better.

First off, the elephant in the room: This game is local multiplayer or single player only and essentially requires controllers to play. That being said, if you're interested and that's not a problem - it's worth it.

It's well designed to cater to both those who prefer casual play and those who want to master it. While new players will certainly feel less skilled, after getting a hang of the controls even they can get a few good shots in. Everyone I've played it with has enjoyed it after only a few rounds.

This is the quintessential fun video game. It is best with local multiplayer but the single player quest is also entertaining.

This is one of the greatest local multi-player experiences I've ever enjoyed, and boy have I played a lot of them. Simple controls that are easy to learn, but many layers of strategy and maneuvering that are difficult to master, even after hundreds of hours, but it's the psychological meta-game between players that keeps me coming back.

We had a group of ~10 people at work playing this at lunch since the launch on ouya, and the competition is intense. The skills on display in an average match at this point would have blown our minds a year ago. The game really does have that kind of longevity, but you need to have a competitive group of players to really bring it out.

It is seriously a crime that more people haven't played this game. For couch multiplayer, it does not get better than this. I've played hours of the single player campaign, the co-op campaign, and the vs. mode with 2-4 players, and I can assure you they are all a blast. Concerned about the price, maybe? In today's age of indie PC gaming and weekly dollar bundles, $15 may seem a tad salty. Trust me though when I say it is not. This is gourmet, not bundle-bin software.

Although completely unrelated in genre, I can't help but to think back to Goldeneye 64 when I play this game. Towerfall has that same spirit that made me and the random group of neighborhood kids/siblings/relatives who were around keep coming back over and over, for hours on end, laughing histerically - but at the same time, passionately engaged and focused. And with the addition of the superlatives handed at the end of each round, I think I can safely say that this is Matt Thorson's love letter to that game, and that era of gaming. A more simple time, where gaming was about friends and togetherness, enjoying a good time in the presence of one another. Matt, thank you for this.
