"This is a different kind of bullet hell, a first person shooter with an offbeat sense of humor that cheerfully dunks you into wave after wave of guns."

Tower of Guns is a fast paced first-person-shooter for the twitch gamer... with a few randomized elements to keep it fresh with each playthrough. It's a short burst "Lunch Break FPS"... not unlike Binding of Isaac mixed with Doom 2. Tower of Guns was made by a guy named Joe (with his brother Mike composing the music).

Key Features

  • SINGLE SITTING FULL EXPERIENCE: For all of those who have too many games (or too little time) this is a game you can pick up and play again and again, without remembering where you were or what you were up to. If you're gonna win, you're gonna do it within an hour or two. That's a big if though... it won't be easy.
  • ALWAYS A FRESH EXPERIENCE: Random enemies, random powerups, random bosses, tons of unlockable items and weapons...even random-level compositing! You never know what to expect when you sit down in front of Tower of Guns.
  • CRAZY POWERUPS: You've played first person shooters where you can double jump, but have you played any game where you can centuple-jump? You can in Tower of Guns, with the right items.
  • GUN-MODIFYING MADNESS: Do you like rocket launchers? You'll like them more if you're lucky enough to stumble upon a "shotgun" modifier. A rocket-launching shotgun is very satisfying. Mix and match your gun with a dozen different Gun Mods!
  • OLD-SCHOOL TACTICS: For the fans of the faster shooters, it's all back. Circle strafe your way to glory at insane speeds; Tower of Guns is all about moving fast!

Tower of Guns is the best FPS / Procedural Death Labyrinth I've played.

There is no hitscan, every weapon requires you to lead your moving targets, and every projectile can be dodged. You are very mobile, and upgrades you find in the tower will allow you to become even faster and stay airborne longer, if you're really lucky you'll be zipping around and rarely touching the ground.

With each new run you'll chose a weapon and perk to start with. Weapon mods found in the tower will allow you to change how your weapon operates, such as giving it a shotgun spread or causing your projectiles to seek or bounce. These, in addition to the reusable items you'll find and various stat increases like health, speed, or jumps, give each run a unique feel, even when you start with the same build. If you're lucky you may even find new, unique weapons in the tower that operate unlike anything else you can start with.

The tower is partly procedurally generated. Each floor you visit has a theme and you'll fight through a random assortment of rooms in that theme before fighting a boss. While the content of each room is random, the rooms themselves are handmade with a better sense of level design than you get with most procedural games, including secret areas and easter eggs.

If you're like me and scour the levels for hidden items, a successful run will take about 35 minutes. You cannot save in the middle of the game so you'll need to finish it in a single run. Thankfully each run is fairly short and can lead to a very addictive one-more-try game session.

Check this game out if you like old-school fast-paced shooters.

Dumb as all hell, but pretty fun. Good time waster, but it really has no introduction and everything is a bit overwhelming at first.

Take your standard first-person shooter. Combine it with rogue-like elements and bullet-hell elements, and you have Tower of Guns. Randomly-generated levels means that no two playthroughs are alike (even if it does, enemy placement is also randomized). Different challenges to unlock perks and weapons encourage repeated playthroughs, and because the level and enemy placement is randomized, you need to learn to adapt to the environment. You'll find yourself constantly dodging cannons, spike balls and buzzsaws. And being a rogue-like, it gets more difficult the further you progress, and if you die, you're starting over. If you like FPS games, rogue-likes and/or bullet-hell games, check this game out.

Overview: Rogue-Like FPS bullet hell

The Good:

+ Fun, fast, first person shooter focused on avoiding mass amounts of bullets

+ The game features 5 chapters, each chapter features randomized layouts, rooms and bosses. Every run through the tower is unique.

+ The rooms you fight in are massive featuring an impressive amount of turrets and bullets flying everywhere. Shooting ,dodging, jumping and moving are all essential skills that have to be mastered in order to survive.

+ Most rooms have secrets for you to discover encouraging exploration

+ Like most rogue like games, you only start out with only 2 guns and 2 perks. As you play the game and complete objectives more guns and perks become unlocked

+ The game features a lot of passive abilities, i.e. extra jump, jump higher, higher armor etc. as well as weapon mods that you can collect

+ Pick up and play gameplay.


The Average:

This game won't win any awards in the graphics department but considering it was made by a couple of people its adequate enough.

For a rogue like game there doesn't seem to be much incentive to continue playing long after you beat the game. The game features an endless mode that progressively gets harder the farther you go along but you never truly feel rewarded
for doing so.

Good for short burst of play but the game can quickly become repetitive, especially when you've seen all the rooms

Achievements require a lot of luck to get. However the game has a cheat console that can make things easier.

Fairly short game depending on how much you wish to unlock or if you plan going for achievements.


Conclusion:

Whenever a developer mixes different genres together the result is usually bad, this game however turned out great. All the different elements work together to make for a very fun fast and enjoyable game. The fact that it was made by a couple of people is even more impressive.
