intense game play, killer graphics
Can get monotonous, needs variety
So what's with all the doom and gloom, Doom Tower?
Doom Tower for Android is a really intense, non-stop, coming right at ya at all times, kinda app. Basically, you're zen master sorta looking guy, sitting in the middle of what looks like a temple. You're just minding your own business, trying to meditate, and then out of nowhere, monsters and beasts materialize and start trying to kill you. Don't you hate it when that happens? How's a guy supposed to become one with the universe and all that, with all this blood and mayhem going on? But the zen master guy doesn't seem too worried, because he barely opens his eyes and just makes short work out of everything coming at him with the power of his mind; superpowers like that would be handy to have, don't you think?
Doom Tower is pretty sophisticated in its presentation.The rules are simple: kill or be killed. The game play is smooth and never lags. Renderings are quick. If anything, this would play better on a larger screen, just because you could better appreciate the details, of which there are many. I love the juxtaposition of the meditating zen master against all the carnage. Controls are similar to Fruit Ninja; just swipe and slice to kill most of the un-dead. Others require stabbing and poking to kill. But our zen master is resilient, if not outright stubborn. If I had that many ghouls trying to eat my soul, I'd probably open my eyes occasionally.
The sounds get to be a bit much for me. And though the game is fun, it can get monotonous, and soon enough, killing ghouls just isn't the thrill it once was. Cool game though.
ResumeDoom Tower is very intense and simple in its game play; which is both good and bad. It's fun, just not for very long. Plenty of action with killer graphics, but it won't hold my interest long.
