With a certain other new game that starts with a ‘T’ and ends with ‘fall’ being released this week, it’s easy to forget that TowerFall Ascension is also out today on PS4. TowerFall is an ‘archery platformer’ which is best enjoyed in tense multiplayer sessions on the couch with some friends. I had a blast with the original indie-hit TowerFall on Ouya and can best describe the game as Smash Bros. with bows and arrows. Despite the simple controls and cute retro style, there is a great deal of depth to this game.
TowerFall Ascension is a new and improved version of the game which features new arenas, archers, powerups, and a brand new co-op quest mode. If you think fondly back to the days of jostling and shouting over a multiplayer game in a room full friends then make sure you pick up TowerFall Ascension which is available now on PlayStation 4.
