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).

About This Game

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!

Decent little shooter, with surprisingly fun and occasionaly tense gameplay. Well worth the price of admission.

I had a lot of fun playing this with various friends, and finally caved and bought it myself. This game is the kind of completely context-free run/gun/fun that is surprisingly hard to find outside of actual arcades.

It's entertaining and often pretty challenging. If you like shooters but are sick of the cringeworthy storytelling you often find in them, this is for you. I didn't find myself lacking context - quite the contrary, I find that it works as an antidote to all the tasteless, bloodsoaked moral myopia of the modern FPS genre.

If shooters are at all your thing, definitely give this a try.

This game is absolutely brilliant. It features huge replayability, trying all the guns and perks combinations and finding all the weapons in game, getting to the top of the tower, finding all the secrets, beating the game on nightmare, getting all the caketown bonuses and of course dice roll.

A definite for anyone.

WARNING: If you don't have a good computer, the sheer amount of bullets and frames will overload your brain.

This game is fantastic, it's full of new things to find even after running through it over and over again. The game starts off really slow but will pick up quickly.

This isn't really a review of the game (which I very much liked) but of the developer.

I had a small issue with installing the game after a patch. Specifically, my virus protection read some file as a threat. It had never done that before, so I panicked and posted something angry because I am a hotheaded jerk on the internet. Well, the developer was on top of it in a flash...literally. My post was up for about 5 minutes before s/he calmly informed me of the obvious, which is that it was a false positive, evident by the fact that I was the only one reporting it. (I run a tight ship on my PC, but I do use a weird virus program...never had a problem before now.) S/he walked me through some steps, even sending me a replacement for the single file causing the trouble.

Anyway, the game is great. But in our days of kickstarters and early access, it is a common sight to see developers and the communities at each others throats. I gotta support a team or individual who realizes that today, maybe unfortunately, game development includes a service aspect. And I was the irrate and unreasonable customer.

10/10 Would buy from again.

A roguelite fps designed to be hard as nails, but completable in less than 3 minutes- not to mention endless runs that can span hours of explosive and exciting gameplay. The game was designed to be playable by multiple audiences, speedrunners, casuals, etc can all find enjoyment out of the game. It's designed to be a game you play while on a lunch break or between other playthroughs, and it really, truly is (which is fairly uncommon in my opinion). Great game. Stop reading. Buy it.

I could write a review of this game and encourage people to buy a game the developer actually supports

I could write a review of this game and say that I have enjoyed every hour I put into the game

I instead played Tower of Guns. Whoops.

If you enjoy The Binding of Isaac and First Person Shooters which echo Unreal Tournament, then pick this up! It's proper good.
