When I saw this on Steam, I thought I'd buy this to thank the developer, Juicy Beast, for one of my all time favorite flash games. Only after purchase do I realize this game does not come with mouse support. Why does the FREE version of this game come with mouse support but the PAID version doesn't? Until this changes, I recommend you search out the free version instead as this game is best played with a mouse.

Knightmare Tower, much like Juicy Beast's other titles, is an endless runner with a bunch of upgrades and quests to do.
The game starts out with a knight playing a not-Gameboy, until he recieves a letter. He finds out someone kidnapped 10 princesses and locked them all up in a giant tower, guess 1 princess just doesn't cut it anymore. So Knight Dude grabs his sword, heads to the tower to save the princesses and find out who kidnapped them.
Now for the game itself, it plays out like any standard Juicy Beast game, kill enemies to go faster, spend gold to unlock upgrades and complete quests for more gold. But instead of just going forward, you're constantly ascending.
If you aren't ascending, then you're probably dead, because right below you is lava, quickly rising up as you progress through the tower, but to do that, you need to kill enemies. You kill them by moving directly below them and pressing A, tearing them in half with your glorious sword. And now you pretty much know everything about Knightmare Tower, you kill enemies to progress until you get to the end, while upgrading yourself on a regular basis. Nothing more, nothing less.
If you're looking for a quick game to blast through in a weekend, or you just have a lot of disposable income, I would definately recommend Knightmare Tower, but if you aren't, I'd just recommend going for something else. The price is definately generous, but considering the time this game lasts, I can see a lot of people not liking it because of that reason.
Before you decide to buy this game, (or not) I'd highly recommend playing the free version of this game which you can find with just a quick Google search. It should give you a pretty good idea on how this game plays and whether you'll like it or not.

It was fun.

But the game is quite short.
The game is just for 2~3 hours.
Only worth it when it's on sale i guess...

Very fun & addicting. Reminds me of the nostalgious Icy Town but now with upgrades and flying & slashing instead of just jumping your way up. Great time killer, buy it.

Very fun and very casual game to kill some time or wind down with, that is, if you don't get addicted to it's incredibly simple yet rewarding gameplay elements.

Only con is you can play the flash version for free, although that version isn't full screen nor does it have native controller support (if you want to use one.) The dev team is a talented bunch that haven't made a game that I didn't like, so I bought this in support, aaaaand as an excuse to go through it again.

Great small casual game, can be finished in less than 5 hours but it's really fun and addictive !

Come from a flash game but the port is well done, you get alot of features such as gamepad support and steam achievements.

Totally worth by the price !

It's a port of a flash game that I played years ago on NewGrounds. Don't believe me? See for yourself: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/602131 Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game. Just nobody should have to pay to play it.

Grats to the game company for stumbling on the formula for an addictive game, but I really wish I had listened to the little voice in my head telling me the name sounded familiar.

It really makes me angry that game devs are selling a game on one platform that's FREE on another.

A clever and stupendously addictive action game that has you beating up bad guys by jumping on them whilst breaking through ceilings to reach new heights!

I enjoyed this a lot. I'm not sure I would recommend this game at $3.99 though. I got it for $1.50 (coupon+Steam wallet).
My biggest complaint is that I've played it for less than 3 hours and I'm almost 100% done.

Pros--
Simple and easy to play
Funny
Cute
Still action packed

Cons
Short
No mouse support
Very short
Needs more content because it's so short
Damn is it short.

Knightmare Tower has the distinct honour of being the last free online flash game I played before I was consumed by the behemoth that is Steam. With it now on Steam, I feel like I've practically come full circle.

Juicy Beast Studio primarily develop free flash games, with a few ported to mobile devices. Knightmare Tower represents their first title on Steam. Now, before I continue, let me just link you to a post where Juicy Beast explain the differences between the flash version and the Steam version: here.

Much like the flash version, this one was relatively short to complete. I managed to complete the main game in...I forget...maybe a few hours? It shouldn't take too long to upgrade everything and challenge the boss. Following that, survival mode proved to be a fun, and slightly harder, distraction. Alas, it did feel a bit too short and I finished the main Steam achievements very quickly. I do wish there was more content added to the game.

Oh yes, I forgot to talk about gameplay. Silly me. So, there's this knight that uses rockets to ascend a tower and rescue princesses, in order to defeat the boss beyond the ceiling. As he ascends, enemies come to kill him. The knight basically falls down on these enemies to kill them and increase his speed going upwards. If he goes too slow, the lava consumes him.
You also gain gold to buy upgrades for your knight, rocket, and etc.. It's imperative that you finish all the upgrades before fighting the boss, which has bullet curtain segments that feels oddly out of place. You don't need to, however. What you DO need to finish are quests (3 maximum per tower run - more are unlocked once you die as the completed quests are removed from the queue) in order to get the key to challenge the boss.

The game looked and played exactly how I remembered it from my Kongregate days. Oddly enough, while there's now controller support in this game, there's no more mouse support. I'm not fazed by this, however - I use the keyboard.

Knightmare Tower was very fun and very addicting back in my Kongregate days, and the Steam version made me relive those days all over again.

When to buy: If you're uncertain of whether you want to buy this game, you can try the free flash version here. If you'd like to support Juicy Beast and earn some Steam achievements, this game will probably last you about 5 hours and has been discounted 50% in the past (not on Steam). So...your call.

From the same developer: Check out their Kongregate profile and portfolio here.

You may add me on Kongregate if you wish - click here. No guarantees I'll add you back since I almost never go there anymore.

8.0/10

Very entertaining, well crafted, rather casual flash game with perfect length and fair prices for the upgrades. The final boss kicks ♥♥♥, both the gameplay and the soundtrack are repetitive but still fun (and what do you expect from a "Toss"-flashgame?) and the controls via controller or keyboard work just fine and precise enough.
Juicy beast is an excellent developer for NOT deleting the original, free flash version online so if it goes on sale here, support him by buying this neat little game!

Weird, but I like it!

It's a "Nanaca crash" type game, where you have a run and suck at first, then make money to buy upgrades that let you get farther. It's fairly simple, but fun. Might be a mobile port, but it works fine with a controller or M+K either way.

In some aspects, this game reminds me of Jetpack Joyride in that it's an endless runner. However, I really appreciate that there truly is an end to the main storyline. It's casual and challenging with a fun sense of humor. Definitely worth the super low cost of this game.

This is regarding the Linux port. Don't waste your money; even for a few bucks because of the frustration. It's a buggy little thing. The game is fun but it keeps dumping my save. Also sometimes your controller just won't be there even though it worked fine for many games before. And the full screen is never sized right you have to window it and then go back to full to make it size right. The worst though is working up to the boss and then the forth time you play it everything is gone. Uninstalling in 10..9..8 bye bye.

It's a fun and simple game. Good to waste a few of your hours, but would I say it's worth the money? No, not really. It has a flashgame-feel to it, because it is one. You can play it for free on Kongregate. If you want to support the developer and don't mind paying, go ahead and buy it. But if you're like me and you have limited money to use for games I'd recommend you to play it on Kongregate for free instead.

Played it for free on Kongregate.com, here it does have more content making it more interesting. I gladly recommend because Juicy Beast is a lovely company and I like to support it + the game is awesome try for yourself for free and if you like come over!!!! ^^ 9/10 Would be 10/10 if it was a little bit longer :P
(Support for mouse control would be a very good ad, miss it so bad :C)
