Review Tower Dash
Swing your way up the tower!

Really cool swinging mechanics, alternate modes, multiplayer
Ads, brutally hard
The first thing I saw when I opened up this app were two full splash page ads, which immediately set my expectations really low for this game. Tower Dash for Android is one of those fast-paced, quick hitting arcade games where you have to have a really good reaction speed in order to succeed in the game. I apparently don’t have that kind of reaction speed, unfortunately.
So, I really like the idea behind this game. You basically play as a square Spider-Man who is trying not to crash into the wall. You’re apparently extremely fragile and will break the moment you come in contact with it. So what you need to do is sort of juggle-climb your way up the wall using your awesome slinging skills. But, like I said, I don’t have those skills and I became pretty frustrated right off the bat.
This is a game that I got better at, but I didn’t consciously get better at it. What ended up happening is that I just let instinct pop in because that seemed to work better than actually trying to think about what you’re doing.
There are all kinds of rewards you can unlock like alternative modes to play and skins to unlock. The alternate game modes seem to be what really drives incentive to continue playing because you can actually team up to play with friends.
