081. Tower of Heaven
So Tower of Heaven, here's one I haven't played in a while. In it you play as this guy trying to get to the top of the Tower of Heaven. However there are plenty of obstacles on the way up, and not only that, but there's a voice, a rule maker if you will, who keeps adding rules you must abide to on your way up. I don't recall all of the rules, but I believe one of this is that you can't touch certain tiles, and another is that you cannot turn around. The rules stack too, so you must remember them all as you climb. Really neat and yet frustrating mechanic.
So Tower of Heaven is really one of though insanely tough platformers, only slower paced. Also there's more traps than there are enemies. I remember having a lot of fun with it, though I don't recall ever beating it. There are also a few little secrets hidden in the game, three to be exact, so you'll have a good time trying to find those.
This game might actually be better known for it's music however. There aren't many tracks at all, but what few tracks there are, are absolutely amazing. The graphics are a retro game boy-esque look, which is pretty cool as well. It's a great game and I recommend you give it a go. It can get frustrating in places, but you know, it's not as bad as a lot of other games out there. So there you go, you can both download this one, or play it in your browser, I'll post both links below.
