"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

Riguardo questo gioco

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.

Great game, but I bought it for the online multiplayer without realizing it's local multiplayer only.

Made me get friends.

8/10 got me friends but made me realize I'm an idiot.

Understand :
1) this is a controller game; KB controls are fine.. just not practical
2) learn your jumps

I die a little inside for every friend of mine that does not own Towerfall.

Admittedly, you could justify not wanting to buy TF because of getting the most out of the main attraction, Local Multiplayer, requires a mobile comp solution as well as 2+ controllers. But you have to understand that:

a) TF more than accomplishes the role of being the go to "mobile comp; 2+ controllers"-type game.
b) TF: Ascension, introduces Quest-Mode and Trial mode that provide excellent opportunities to single-player train while friends aren't around.
c) Quest Mode is so good a challenge that it could stand on its on. We all came looking for the multiplayer but finishing Quest Mode with all red/gold skulls will make you a master multiplayer competitor master (not a typo)

TF contains many more subtleties that you will come to love and adore. I dare not spoil you.

BEST INDIE GAME SINCE HOTLINE MIAMI AND FTL!

The single player "Quest" mode is so complex and fun that you won't care about there not being any online multiplayer. I would say this game is an 8-bit Smash Brothers, but IT'S BETTER.

Super Simple gameplay with tons of complexity made every round of play an endless variety of chaos that compels you to get better and better. I've put 10 hours in single player, and I'm not even half way through it.

PURE AWESOME! PERFECT GAMEPLAY!

The best 'couch' experience on PC. Easy to pick up with a fairly high skill ceiling, tight controls and tighter design.

Don't consider buying this if you don't have friends to play with and controllers for them to use.


Controls can't be rebound without the use of additional software and some controllers don't play nice.

This is a great game!
It was the Ouya seller for quite a while and finally came to PC.
Grab your friends, get your controllers out and have a blast.

This is a fast-paced multiplayer platformer focused on reacting quickly to the other players and the changing environment. I have yet to play a game without laughing and getting punched.

Con: local multiplayer only
Pro: everything else

A++

Really fun 4 players split-screen game
the game is very easy to get into but requires some strategy and quick thinking to outsmart your opponents and kill them.
your objective is to kill your opponents with your arrows, they usually die with one hit unless they have the shield power-up. there are many arrow types and power-ups to be grabbed, also there are many options and mutators to change like auto balance that will give shield power up to the losing players..etc. highly recommended if you have enough buddies to play with.

A perfect local multiplayer game really, Co-op or VS.
The great thing is they are always adding things and so I'm surprised and amazed nearly everytime I fire the game up with some friends.

Towerfall will probably be in my top 10 alltime games. Great 4-player archery battle with customable rules set. Singleplayer quest is not my cup of tea. Trial levels are frustating yet rewarding. Most of the levels are unlocked at the beginning, but needs some singleplayer gaming to unlock the rest.

The downside for some people is that the game supports no network play. I enjoy playing local, but can't get the gang together as often as I'd like.

+ Full chaos 4-player multiplayer
+ Easy to learn, hard to master
+ Variety with custom rules set
+ Time-trial like puzzle levels
+ Supports a variety of controllers without extra configuration
+ Great music and clear pixelgraphic visuals
- No network play

An extremely polished and well-made game. Everything works perfectly, and every mode is a joy to play. The lack of an online mode is a bit disappointing however. There isn't any LAN either.
