Originally starting it’s life as one of the must own exclusive games for the Android console Ouya, Towerfall Ascension has made its way to the PS4 and PC. This is a game that very much feels like it was designed for the Android platform, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Towerfall has 100% of its focus on gameplay, there is very little story to speak of
and the real bread and butter of this game is multiplayer whilst story has zero relevance.
Towerfall started its life as an Android based game. Instead of trying to max out the platform it was designed for, Matt Thorson has decided to go for an 8 bit 2D retro look. While the visuals are simplistic upon first glance they are rarely ever boring. Each character has a distinct look and the enemies all look imposing and threatening.
