There are many different variations on the classic dungeon crawler goal of saving the princess. What makes Tower Princess different is the fact that at the end of the rescue mission, you’ll bank yourself a date with the prince or princess you’ve saved.
Tower Princess is a polished, beautiful, 3D-action platformer that is procedurally generated each time you play. This means that no two runs will be the same, as you take on another tower hoping to save another member of the royal family. All the while, there are big and small monsters dotted around.
As you play through the game, there are some different knights that you can choose from, each with their own weapons and attacks. These attacks will help you defeat the dungeon in the way that you feel best, while also allowing you to play a different character. Traps are dotted around each dungeon, allowing you to pick up and place traps to do a bit more damage, as well as avoid traps that are placed within the environment.
When it comes to your date aspect of the game, in Tower Princess, you and the person you saved will be facing the dragon together. This dragon has been capturing everyone in the royal families across the land, and nobody can actually defeat them. Fighting alongside the character you saved, you’ll be able to show how strong and powerful you are, hopefully winning them over while they help with the fight.
I got the chance to play a demo of Tower Princess at the Valencia Indie Games Summit, where it even won the award for ‘Best Console Indie Game’.
You can wishlist Tower Princess right now, on Steam. It is coming soon to PC and consoles.
