Towertale sees four characters – Lionel, Faindrel, Lord Snicklefritz and “Dark Echo” – braving the elusive and mysterious “Tower” in a quest to challenge their fate. It has been said that whoever reaches the top of the “Tower” may be granted the ultimate wish – that is to change one’s fate.
The game features 17 fast-paced boss battles and four playable characters, each with a different story to tell. There are 12 masterfully-crafted levels all-in-all along with multiple story endings. Towertale also boasts over 120 in-game story cutscenes, 25+ CG’s, and more than 34 music tracks, in one complete package. In addition, the Switch version will include a new co-op mode according to the developer – and apparently, they’re currently hard at work in improving the said feature.
