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>>
Amazing competitive fun
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.
