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).

ToG 1.3 Released!

Hey folks! I know it's been a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time, and for the most part I've moved on to new projects, but I did want to post another update of ToG for all you guys! Unfortunately, this update is Windows Only.

This update includes:

  • A lot of small bugfixes (collision fixes, some art fixes, etc)
  • Fixed an issue with MamaSpinbot going...bonkers..forever..
  • Fixed an issue with the player getting trapped in the Tog-o-Drome forever and being forced to live out their lives in a digital prison of sadness. Let us raise a glass in honor of those lost souls still trapped there now, who are beyond the help of this patch.
  • Tuned drop rates some of old guns, but the change was done months ago and I forgot to notate exactly what in my notes because I'm pro.
  • Added some new game modes for you all!
  • Added a few new guns (mostly accessible from game modes, but also some of them are in the normal drop lists as well)
Thanks so much for your continued support, folks! I hope you like the update! :-)

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!

Guns. Guns everywhere. This game is a first person bullet hell, which is a difficult combination to find nowadays. It also incorporates some rouge-like elements, allowing you to collect and purchase loot in the form of upgrades and stat boosts. This in itself is fun, but one of the more enjoyable features of this game is the literal ton of secrets that can be found. Every room has a secret or two to unlock, and because of the randomized nature of the game i'm constantly finding new things on every playthrough. But whats all this mean without the gunplay. Shooting in tower of guns is chaotic and exaggerated. It doesn't take long for your screen to be swamped with bullets, missiles, and bombs. The downside to this is that your first five or so runs are mostly likely going to end in a quick death, as the game doesn't start you with very good weapons. Unlocking new guns should be your first priority, as progression past the first boss is almost impossible without it. The game lets you choose between dashing past enemies to the exit, or fighting it out in the search for power ups and loot. These sort of decisions become very important later in a run, as arming yourself is key to preparing for the next boss fight.
Overall this game has a special charm to it. Being hand crafted as a co-op project between two brothers, you can see the love that has been pored into it. If you are a fan of bullet hell shooters, or simply want to try something different and don't mind a challenge, then you should defiantly check this game out.

This is a great little game. It's a great game to just chill with a controller and run n gun through hundreds of crazy enemies and defenses, die, fight crazy huge and scary bosses, die, unlock crazy new weapons, die, find loads of secrets, then win after a more deaths. This is all made by one guy, and is great regardless of that fact and rather impressive. I can't wait to see what else this guy comes out with, this game is a blast.

Pros:

- Fun as hell

- Lots of unique enemies, traps, towers, and defenses

- Pretty visuals

- Lots of level variation

- Interesting and fun to use weapons and perks

- Price

There really aren't a lot of cons, and the ones that are there aren't really significant.

Cons:

- Not a lot of weapons

- Difficult at first, but worth it

- Can be overwhelming with enemies/action at times

- The weapons are odd, as they all shoot relatively slow projectiles

A love child of PVE Quake III and 3D platformer. Not bad at that.

I went on a murderous rampage as a granny who wants to recycle,

I put a rapid-fire mod on a minigun, killing bosses instantly,

I got 52 jumps and flew onto the top of the Tower of Guns, where the developer called me out for breaking the game,

Finished off the final boss, but I wasn't done. No, I NEEDED to recycle my cans, so I went one step further and killed the heart of the tower.

But luckily, I brought my jet pack along, so I flew out the tower before it made its low-budget explosion, and won the game.

cans/10 Would recycle while killing a Tower of Rapid-Fire Miniguns again.
