Tower of Greed

Tower of Greed is a game about the banker's favorite deadly sin, in the form of an aggressively retro, fast-moving platformer. Will you exit the tower with untold riches? Or will you be betrayed by your own avarice? If your fingers are nimble enough, let's find out!

This is a great game! I keep chasing after the white gems. Also, I got the "impatient much?" trophy! :D
One small detail: How do you use the exits? Space? Shift? I can't get it to work.

Splurgy - try [up] or the key you're using for jump. That worked for me.

The randomly generated levels makes this game extremely addictive to me, and enhances the replay value exponentially. xD

Must. Stop. Playing.

Great find!
I love it how even the trophies get stripped from you if you die... evil

Tower of Greed? Tower of OCD more likely. :)

What's interesting is the fact that getting all the trophies is by no means an unachievable task. In fact, there seems to be only one (or two) trophies that are hard to get, and if you chase those two odds are you will pick up majority of the other ones on the way.

Overall a nice find. Like "Icy Tower" but with more platforming and less addictiveness.

I love this game. The soundtrack, the simplicity of the graphics. It all just fits together and works. What's also great is that since the levels are selected from a fixed amount, you can learn them and know beforehand which road is the safest/has the most gems/gets you an item. Even the enemy placement isn't completely random (I think there are several pre-set spawnpoints per tower segment, each of them has a chance of having an enemy).

Funfunfunfunfun.

The game really have a nice greed sensation :D. The retro style fit it and it have nice levels. It is a plus that player are given option where to go. Left? Right? Center? Is that weird stair on the farside lead to richness? Or it reach to nothing? Should I just hit the monster or wait it move away?

This game is more addicting than popping bubble wrap.

Must. Stop. Playing. [2]

Great, after playing that now every webpage I try to read seems to be scrolling away from me...

Anyone have any tips on the one where you need to get as close as possible to the bottom? I can't ever seem to manage it, I either am too high, or I die.

Addicting game, but when (yes, when) they make a sequel, they must make it so you can use items after you get hit. I can't count how many times that wouldve saved me...

@Fuzzyevil

I had trouble with that one, too. Just try and try again. The sprite has to completely disappear from the screen, that I'm sure of. I think I managed to achieve it with the ladder.

Also, to trigger the trophy I think you have to climb all the way to the top of the screen after sinking below it, maybe this is what's keeping you from getting it.

"A winner isn't you."
That made me laugh so hard the first time.
Frustratingly fast, but fun.

Yay, I got it! Yeah, you need to get back to the top to get the trophy, which was why I wasn't getting it.

"Tower Or Greed" could easily be mistaken for a game of Nintendo in 1988(smile).

Love this game!

I'm a little confused as to the point of survival mode... yes, you get to 'bank' your gems & trophies but if you don't exit the tower at some point (ie die) then you lose them anyway. So isn't the 'bank' option nothing more than an elaborate pause?

Any thoughts?

Yeah banking doesn't seem to work - when I die in survival mode, it says it's saved my trophies, only... it hasn't.

@fuzzyevil, baba44713: getting "Close Call" is tricky? It must've been the third thing I ever got. Maybe I was just that bad with the controls...

It's tricky if you want to get it on purpose.

Btw, I'm missing just two trophies - the cumulative killing enemies one. Does anyone have them all? Is it worth it?

Anyway, one thing that seems really wanting is a record of your personal high score (and high level?). I've resorted to keeping one on a scrap of paper...

Need some help, I've downloaded it, but i'm unable to play. I need an emulator type program? Or do I just not have shockwave flash properly installed?

It's Flash, so it should run in your browser.

Try reinstalling Flash:

Ah XD no, I'm sorry, I meant I want to play it on my desktop. It runs fine in my browser

Close Call himt:

Jump so that the screen starts scrolling in the beginning, then get to the bottom, and jump AS SOON AS THE PLATFORM ABOVE YOU DISSAPEARS!!!

Good Luck!

What is the "Nice Try" trophy?

Oh, never mind. I finally discovered that you can highlight an achievement and press the jump key to read what the requirement is.

i think you should make another game but fix bugs and modify game
