Tower of the Archmage
High on top of a tall tower is an Archmage, waiting endlessly for a worthy opposite to climb the tower and prove his worth. Hopefully, he has an internet connection because he is going to be waiting for a long, long time. Boy that climb is tough and all those stairs are a killer on the knees. Stairs aside, Tower of the Archmage is a pretty difficult, complicated, but very addicting action roguelike game. With twenty-five random generating levels, spells you customize and four different class types it's going to be hard to get bored with this one. Facing foes like, chinchillas, the powerful Steve, and the dreaded alpacas make it a challenge every step of the way. Death is a fact of life in the tower, but you are given the option to keep a rune (what you use to build your spells) and pass it on to your successors who will soon begin his own climb to face off with the Archmage.
If you're anything like me then you know tutorials are for wusses. Or for the non-lazy. But while the tutorial for Tower of the Archmage is a bit on the long side, it is wholly needed to really play the game to the full potential. Movements are turn-based, so you can pause at any time to make changes to your control configuration, or even adjust your spells. While spells are your main form of attack for all classes, you can't be too trigger happy with them, as each time you cast a spell, you gain Flux Points, and if you gain too many, it gets chaotic. Sometimes the Flux can be beneficial to you, giving you more power, sometimes it can change your sense of direction, flipping the screen and controls upside down, and the higher your points, the higher your chances of instant death. So clearly, Tower of Archmage is not a game you can go running through, blasting all out of your way. It's going to require, patience, strategy, and careful balancing your character. There is a level of frustration with this game as death can come swiftly if you're not watching yourself. But If you're looking for a challenge or something to sink your free time into, start your ascent. The Archmage is waiting for you.
