Tower 57 released for AmigaOS 4.1: excellent retro-futurism shooter
Tower 57 has been released for AmigaOS 4.1, AROS and MorphOS. If retro-futurism meets pixel destruction then Tower 57 is a perfect match! Tower 57 takes place in a dystopian world where the outside is polluted and dangerous. Humanity has gathered in massive towers where the lower levels live in sweltering poverty while the rich and affluent live lavishly near the top. The dieselpunk setting pops to life here, with detailed environments such as ravaged sweatshops, lush penthouses and contaminated bathhouses infested with mutated organisms becoming rather colorful backdrops for mayhem, especially against swarms of equally colorful enemies. The hub world, Amor’s Den, deserves the most praise, teeming with citizens carrying on with daily life, where people beg for change and intricate statues decorate the streets as cars zip by. The sixteen-bit music should also be commended, fitting the old-school mood perfectly. Tower 57 is a simple type of game with a simple concept and controls. Swarms of enemies and attacks come from all directions, pay attention and aim right stick in the right direction, fire and dodge, lather, rinse, repeat. Daniel Müßener developer of the AmigaOS, AROS and MorphOS has done an amazing job. You can purchase a digital copy for just $ 11,99 on this website.
