Towers is an American-style first-person RPG title that challenges adventurers to escape the 15 perilous levels of Lord Baniff's Tower.
There are four heroic characters to choose from, with hundreds of spells and items to be discovered throughout the quest. Exploration and puzzle solving are the major elements of the gameplay, but there are plenty of monsters lurking in the shadows which must be defeated.
Towers uses a menu-based system to access spells and items, which is fairly easy to figure out but quite tedious to use. If you're a die-hard RPG fan, though, you'll appreciate the detailed options available. In addition to choosing which items to pick up and and equip, it's up to you to determine when your character eats and sleeps.
The storyline may be thinner than leather armor, but Towers has the depth and complexity to satisfy serious role players. Towers: Lord Baniff's Deceit is compatible only with Game Boy Color.
