"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

“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.”

Über dieses Spiel

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

I've brought this game to a lot of my friends, and it has ALWAYS been a hit in 10 minutes or less.

I consider this a must own for anyone who typically plays games with friends in the same room. The cooperative Quest mode is challenging and fun, while the competitive Head Hunter and Death Match modes bring in some fierce action. The secrets and endless combinations of arrows, treasure, and wacky options make for a unique match every time.

Above is my thoughts on the game in video form

Let me first start with, this game is fantastic! It has deceptively simple design that any one can jump into, but once you get into it, you'll see the game presents some very in depth game mechanics. It's very demanding on the player, as your skill level will decide how well you'll do.

The game features single player quest mode, and local multiplayer, but seems to lack online multiplayer which is unfortunate because I feel the game would benefit greatly if it had it.

But nonetheless the game is still enjoyable, even if you are playing it on your lonesome

Pros:
- Mechanics are some of the best designed I've seen
- Incredibly in depth meta
- Skill based
- Fluid controls
- Gorgeous pixel art
- Addictive play

Cons:
- No online >.<

One of the best couch co-op games I've ever played. If you have four controllers and can use your PC in the living room, buying this game is a no brainer. Easily worth $15.

Still wish it had online multiplayer, though.
