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!

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.

Its an FPS Mixed with a Platformer. Super creative and vary hard!
The "UBER SECRETS" will blow your mind with how well hiddin they are.
Every friend I've showed loved it, plus iv been playing for over a year and i still play this game.
It's one of the best Shooters out there in my oppinion.


P.S. finding the secrects yourself is vary rewarding, because some of them are incredibly well hidden.

Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Bullet hell roguelike first person shooter game.


Interface/Menu/Settings

There are some resolution sizes.
You can play this game in fullscreen mode or windowed mode.
You are able to change the Music volume. There is a volume bar from 0.25 to 2.
You are able to change the Sound Volume. There is a volume bar from 0.25 to 2.
You can change your mouse Sensitivity.
You can change your controls on the keyboard.
The collection is basically meant for "stats", You can see ur deaths/wins and unlockables.
You are able to play with a xbox controller.



About the game.

You start your game by picking a perk and weapons. You can only activate 1 weapon or perk at the time. Killing enemies or finding blue experience items. Will level up your weapon. You will do more damage and shoot faster. However, taking damage will decrease your weapon level experience (including a level down to your weapon. You kill robots and other machine type enemies. You will encounter some mini-bosses, secrets and useable items. You can find "container shops" If you put some money in, you can get some nice items or weapon mods. If you have found a useable item. You will regain charges after killing enemies. Every level has a Boss level. Killing him will give you an item and you can advanced to the next level.

You can unlock weapons and perks.
There is an endless mode and a story mode.
Able to change your gamemode. Random mode or any other effects.
Picking up health even if you are full will waste the health item.
There is fall damage.
Could be Stale/Boring after awhile because everything looks the same.
There are secrets areas and hidden walls.
There are NO options ingame. Only at main menu.
You can not Save or load games.


Other things.

Lava will not instantly kill you but slowly drain your health.
Somehow i sometimes get stuck at "small steps". My character gets blocked from it and i can only pass it if i jump over it.
Robot has emotions? Um.. Something that isn't alive has emotion. Does that mean zombies have those too?

You might want to consider getting a discount on the game. I don't think 15 bucks is a fair price.

-------------------

I Give this game a 7/10

DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

Tower of Guns, developed by Terrible Posture Games, this game is a bullet hell rogue-lite game where all you need to do is shoot as much enemies as you can whilst obtaining new powerups, new guns and upgrades. The game is fun and challenging to play, the graphics are asthetically nice and the music is nice to listen to

Overall, Tower of Guns is a fun game to play and the game takes a twist in which each new game you play, you will receive something that will either make your gameplay better or worse

Tower of Guns is a fun rogue-lite shooter that is best played in short bursts

RECOMMENDED :)

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.
