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

Bu Oyun Hakkında

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 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!

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

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

This game feels like a mix between Super Smash Bros. (particularly Melee) and the 8-bit Kid Icarus as far as gameplay and singleplayer campaign goes. Each part is more noticable depending on whether you're playing multiplayer or campaign. And, let it be known, this was the game that, alongside Bombsquad, led me to purchasing an Ouya.

It's upgraded appearance on the PS4 and on Steam are very much welcomed by me, though I have some qualms for the Steam version.

The PC is, unless you hook it up to the TV, not built for local multiplayer couch parties in mind. Overall, the PC mainly focuses on online multiplayer with the likes of Quake, TF2, and League of Legends. Towerfall does not have online multiplayer, and though arguments have been made supporting its non-support (and I agree with most of them), you essentially have to get things hooked up and working properly to get a decent couch multiplayer experience with Towerfall. Best thing I will say is that the Singleplayer is a bit easier on the PC.

Because, in my opinion, playing Towerfall with friends on the couch is THE best way to play it, I vastly prefer the Ouya and PS4 versions to the PC version. And, aside from these minor qualms, I think that Towerfall is one of the better combat-platformer (combatformer?) games on the market, outside of Super Smash Bros. itself. If you do not have a PS4 and want to play your PS4 game with friends, Towerfall alone is a solid reason to buy one, though at this point it's somewhat difficult to truly recommend it (hard to say with all these games getting delayed), but if you don't have one and do not intend to buy PS4 or Ouya, get it on Steam. If you have an Ouya, you need Towerfall. If you have a PS4, I will instantly recommend Towerfall Ascension. It's that good of a combatformer game.

Pros: VERY Solid gameplay, neat character design (My favorite's the Thief), a unique concept that by all means may be a steep learning curve (1-hit KO on most attacks) but ends up being easy to pick up anyway. Great soundtrack, and interesting take on the pixel art aspect.

Cons: If you're not familiar with the game, you may get steamrolled by other experienced players. The music, while still great, can get repetitive in the campaign. PC version is, by design of PC, hard to get that multiplayer experience without online multiplayer built-in (which is why I recommend the PS4 and Ouya versions over the PC version, at least for now). Ouya version was what got me hooked on Towerfall, but last I checked did not get the Ascension version that PS4 and PC had.

Overall: 9.5/10 for PC and Ouya, 10/10 for PS4.

Wow. This is couch co-op at its best. Sort of remenisant of super smash bros but much more fast-pased.

If you have someone to play this with its a very enjoyable experience, but the single player modes (IMO) do feel a tad lonely.

I had much more fun playing versus mode than anything else but I do commend the developer(s) for including the single player modes regardless.

Perhaps the current price is a tiny bit expensive for such a simplistic game, but you'll be having so much fun in the co-op mode that you'll for get what you payed for it !

Give it a shot!

The following are what you MUST have to get your full enjoyment out of the game:
  • Friends ( Preferably a group of 4 including yoursefl)
  • Enemies ( Preferably of the arch variety that you would love to rub the feeling of euphoria *tip tip* from victory in their face)
  • Controllers ( Dualshock 4 and dualshock 3 work amazingly. I have not tried xbox but it probably yield the same results)
  • A big monitor or access to a television ( It's local co-op only so bring that gaming rig out of the man cave)
  • Razor sharp reflexes!( It's a fast pased, twitch shooting, battle arena extravaganza which will leave you speechless and out of adjectives)
