About Tower of Time

About this game

Tower of Time is an incredible adventure packed with over 50 hours of gameplay, hand-crafted levels, and a rich story told through cinematics. Taking classic RPG gameplay to the next level, Tower of Time features flexible character development, thousands of pieces of loot and equipment and the complex and tactical Arrow-Time real-time combat system.

Important note: Combat in Tower of Time is different. Each battle is designed like a tactical puzzle. If you want to enjoy combat, you need to pick the difficulty which is adequately challenging to your skill set and adjust it as you progress. At the highest difficulty level, it is very demanding and requires you to find the synergies between classes, skills and equipment.

Engaging story of epic proportions

Immerse yourself in a world where technology meets magic with devastating consequences. Gather a group of diverse champions and lead them through the tower. Hundreds of lore books and scattered pieces of information slowly reveal the history of Artara as your party of adventurers approach their fate.

Deep tactical real-time combat with pause or slow-time

Take ultimate strategic control of each battle with the Arrow-Time combat system that slows the action down to a crawl or pauses it. Plan ahead and position your party where you need them for ultimate effect. Use Arrow-Time to react to new threats, deploy devastating new spells and attacks and counter enemy attacks. No two encounters are ever the same. On harder difficulties - look at each battle as a tactical puzzle.

RPG-lite and Permadeath modes

For those who do not like or have time for typical long cRPG and prefer fast-paced combat oriented games - RPGlite mode cuts down the story content and lets you focus on party building and tactical combat. With Permadeath option for those who appreciate a really tough challenge and want to test their skills. Compare yourself with others via Score and DPS Race leaderboards.

Fun game!

Really fun game! My girlfriend recommended it to me and i was hooked right away. In some ways it reminded me of those things I loved about Neverwinter Nights. Wish it had a coop though!

Accessible Real-Time Strategy with Pause/Slow Options.

Merlin
Verified purchase
The tactical pausing makes the game accessible for people with lower APM, while still allowing players with higher APM to challenge themselves by only slowing combat or playing entirely in real-time.

Not my type of game, but that’s really on me and is no fault of the game. It’s one of those third-person old style games. Like your prospective is from above everything, and you move around by clicking where you want to go.

Worth a go if you like RPGs, specifically RPGs with real time combat. Bought it on sale, and found it to be at least worth the price.

Great Time Sink

MaxxyNL
Verified purchase
The game might seem to be a little formulaic to veterans of CRPGs but it is not without innovations of its own. For developer Event Horizon, Tower of Time is an astounding entry that gives fans of the CRPG genre something different to sink their teeth into.
