Though already out on PC, Tower of Guns is hitting PS3 and PS4 next Tuesday, April 7th, and will be free on both consoles for PS Plus members. It will also release on Xbox One on the 10th for $14.99/€14.99. From the launch trailer above, it’s safe to say it looks rather insane…
Taking to the Playstation Blog to explain just what the game is all about, Jakub Mikyska, CEO of Grip Games, described it saying, it is “an old-school, first-person shooter. You only have one life, and if you get killed, you have to start from the beginning. All the levels, enemies, pick-ups and other elements of the game are completely randomized, so each run through the game is unique and everything is new each time you start over. As you play the game, you build up your arsenal, unlock additional items and perks, and get stronger.”
Tower of Guns is what is called a bullet-hell style game, a description usually saved for the most ridiculous shmups you see and are generally too afraid to play. Mikyska goes on to say, “The enemies are merciless and you’ll need to be constantly on the move, dodging bullets. Forget cover mechanics or stealth missions — it’s time to re-learn strafing and double-jumping and enter each room with guns blazing.”
