You are prince Myer, and you are about to become the ruler of your country. Strolling outside just before the ceremony, you meet a strange person by the lake. You are told about an evil wizard planning to destroy the land. In order to stop him and to fulfill an ancient prophecy, you have to travel to the Northern Mountain and to destroy the Seven Bell Towers.

Deadly Towers is an action game with very light RPG elements. On every screen there are hordes of enemies for you to dispatch, by throwing your sword at them. The gameplay style is similar to Zelda series.
