I've been playing games for about thirty-two years now, and Towerfall has NONE of the charm that I remember from the old days. It tries to be a classic copy, but ultimately fails on every level except one. The singleplayer experience is where the game is really awful. The only skills you need to tackle it are patience, memorization, and a long attention span. There are literally NO rewards to playing this game in single, so I suggest you don't bother. The only upside to this terrible game is seen only if you have 4 controllers AND a lot of friends to play with. (because many of them are going to get angry and stop playing 10 minutes in) The multiplayer with a rarely adequate group can be a riot of fun, but arranging such a thing without online capability is nearly impossible. As much as I want to like this game because of its style, I have to warn users away from it due to its near-worthlessness. <<1/10>>

This game is a blast to play with friends. The single player mode isnt bad either but towerfall is at its best with 2 or more people playing. Its a fast paced dash to "get them before they get you". Just dont run out of arrows. If you have friends over for party games then towerfall is a must. An easy game to learn but with different powerups and arrow types it can take a bit to master. If your just looking for a fun single player experience its still worth a look but maybe if it goes on sale. Though there are a bunch of secrets and unlockables in single player. The graphics may turn some people off but for myself the graphics and sound were a fantastic throw back to my 16 bit days. All I have heard about was this game has no online multiplayer boo hoo. *waves his cane and strokes his beard* back in my day there was no newfangled internet to play games on. You either had friends pile on your couch and play with *gasp* a wired controller, or you stuck to single player games. Im GLAD this game doesnt have online play to slow down the action with lobbies and lag and a level up system. Not everything has to be online multiplayer. If you actually have real friends and enjoy spending time with them stop reading this and go buy towerfall!
Rated 9 out of 10 by DauntlessLuke Amazing competitive fun
I loved playing this game with my friends and family, and the campaign has 2 player availability, which is very useful. The campaign is more used to practice basic skills, that can be used in Versus mode. It is nothing like any classic Mario type games, but is great if you're looking for a fun party game.

My local FGC loves this game! I decided to bring to one of our weeklies and it caught on! AMazingly competitive, takes skill and execution. The only problem is this is not a single player game AT ALL, so you'll need atleast another controller and some friends to have fun.
