What I Played: 6+ hours, completed to Platinum
There aren’t enough games that use Sci-fi B-movies as their source material. I think I can count on one hand the games that would qualify. The Deadly Tower of Monsters doesn’t just use them as a source, it IS a Sci-fi B-movie. Well, it’s actually an isometric shooter but the plot is that the game is a movie. At first glance, it would be easy to write the game off as one of the hundred similar games that have come out recently, but that would be a mistake.
gameplay, writing, narrator, concept
The Deadly Tower of Monsters is one of the best indie games I’ve played. I’ve obviously been through too many shooter games in this style, but the concept here is totally unique to my knowledge. On top of that, everything from the gameplay to the writing is consistently great throughout and it manages to never become stale. That being said, it is kind of short so that may not be as big of an accomplishment as I think it is. Length aside, I don’t see any reason that one would not enjoy this game. A very unique experience that I would recommend to anyone.
