Gameplay Video

Hello TA Members,

I'm one of the developers of Tower in the Sky. I'm an active TA member, so I'll be watching this thread and answering any questions!

Here's a gameplay video, for anyone who wants to see a little bit more about how the game looks in action.

Now this is an App Store description that sells the game well (I'm looking at you, Heroes Never Die)!

I'm not certain this is my kinda genre (dev, how involved and skill-based is the strategy?), but just about everything about this game looks highly polished! I might buy this on principle alone.

Ayjona, I agree with you. And after watching the video (which I rarely do), I'm going for it. This looks pretty nice. I will post imps later on.

Ayjona,

Glad to hear you liked the description!

The strategy and skill really are focused into a few main areas of the gameplay.

First it's important to equip the right gear combinations as you advance in the game as gear bonuses stack. You can really get some awesome load outs for your characters down the road as you collect a lot of loot. Secondly, there are many different character types and some parties work well together while others don't. For example, there is a character who can curse characters weakening them to critical hits and another character who can do massive critical damage. Playing them together works really well.

When playing the game, the action happens in real time so you have to place your characters and launch their attacks (and special attacks) at the correct time in order to maximize the damage your party is doing. Sometimes you have to use a character as a tank to absorb damage and move another character in at the right moment to take an enemy out. Each characters attack has a different range and ability, so moving your characters around in real time as enemies advance really gets your mind working. When the battle gets really hectic it feels like a fast paced puzzle game.

We tried to get the difficulty curve right, so the early levels should be pretty easy to get the hang of things while the later levels can get really challenging and require picking the right strategy.

Hopefully that helps a bit!
