1.3.1 - New Achievement + Fixes

Hey everyone! Today I uploaded a quick little patch to address a few lingering issues after the Workshop Update.

  • Added a new achievement! Speed of Light - Hyper jump across a level
  • Fixed a crash when placing Mud on a bottom row of a level in the editor
  • Modding in new archers or co-op towers by hand, rather than replacing the already-existing ones, should no longer crash the game

Thanks, and have fun!

À propos de ce jeu

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

TowerFall Ascension is an arena type game. This game was released in March 2014, after initially being released as an Ouya exclusive in 2013 (snarf). It is now on PC, PS4 and Mac/Linux.

TowerFall's arena type gameplay focuses heavily on archery. The game has two modes; firstly the single player - the aim is to kill targets around each stage either by stomping on their heads, or by shooting them with your bow before a timer runs out; this leaves to plenty of replaying of levels in order to better your score and to beat your best time.

Where TowerFall really shines is in the multiplayer mode. Up to four players will fight in a battle royal environment. Your aim is simple, kill or be killed. Each player has a limited amount of arrows to do it in too, so you can't just spam fire and hope you get lucky. You are able to replenish your ammo by picking up rogue arrows shot by yourself and the others though, meaning things can get very frantic. Throughout the stage, there will also be various different power-ups spawn, such as special effects on your arrows or shields - these all add to the extremely fast paced gameplay.

The graphics and art style, yet again have the pixelated theme, but they are still all really well drawn out and it looks very pleasant. Each of the arenas that you are fighting in also look amazing too, some will be set in the jungle, others in a poorly lit cave, they all look gorgeous.

Single player in TowerFall Ascension is easy; you can easily clear the stages in less than an hour. Where the difficulty ramps up like most games is the multiplayer. It will only be as difficult as your opponents are, as they are they only thing that can kill you; you don't need to worry about the environment playing tricks against you. It will take you a few hours to get to a point where you are competent in games; it can be very frustrating though.

I have been playing TowerFall for almost eight hours now; I would say that this is a game to play in small chunks. Bring it out when you have friends over for an hour of almost archery style Super Smash Bro fun, but any more than that, and you may find yourself getting a little bored. This is certainly a game to keep installed due to the replay-ability though.

The game supports resolutions up to 1080P, which I suppose is all you need for a pixel style game like this and it is highly recommended you play this game with a game pad; keyboard controls would be a nightmare.

To conclude, I am going to simply recommend TowerFall Ascension; its a game that not everyone will enjoy, and is almost certainly made with couch multiplayer in mind. If you don't have friends who also own this game, don't get it, the single player is not worth it. If you can find a group to play with, sure its worth the £10,99 because of the fun fast paced gameplay you'll get out of it.


Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
