For anyone waiting impatiently for Super Smash Bros Ultimate (not long to wait now!), this is a great way of getting your 2D fighting fix. TowerFall might not have the same wide roster of characters, and controls are simplified to just three buttons – jump, shoot arrows, and dodge – but every single element of the game is perfectly
honed. The pick-up-and-play simplicity means the game is a good fit for parties, even with people who don’t play games often, but there’s plenty of depth and nuance beneath the surface. With a whole mess of variants to mix things up, from bomb arrows to big-head mode, it’ll keep you going way past December.
