Upgrade your weapons, find new equipment, level up your hero.- Explore a detailed, mysterious, randomly generated tower that changes with each ascent. Discover the purpose of the tower and see your one true wish granted.- Accessible and easy to pick up and play, but ascending to the higher levels of the tower will take intense skill.- Bring a friend! Co-Op Play for two players on local multiplayer.- The Music: Featuring tracks by the Slime Girls, Protodome, and L.R.A.D---- MECHANICS ----Weapons: Begin the game with a *weaksauce* primary weapon and find better ones as you traverse the tower. Every weapon has benefits and drawbacks.Spellbooks: Ancient secrets lie within these tomes. Spellbooks contain a set spell and a set amount of charges, when your spellbook is spent, it's time to switch! All spellbooks can be charged for more powerful effects, but it will drain them faster. Alter your spell abilities with ability orbs gained by leveling up!Skill Orbs: Dangerous and fragile shards of knowledge. Consume them to permanently gain a new ability, or use them as powerful weapons to strike down your enemies. Or maybe just mess up and have them blow up in your face instead.Boots: Every one knows that you can't dash without boots! Explore the tower to find all kinds of stylish boots to modify your dashing capabilities. Dash longer and further, or maybe you want to be able to chain multiple dashes at a time, or teleport past enemies like a ninja... or maybe you just want to fly over hazards like they weren't even there, It's all possible if you have the right boots!Chaos Cards: Complete special challenges to collect persistent cards which you can keep between runs. Don't worry, cards are always optional. But maybe the game is too hard for you. Go ahead and equip the 'baby' card and all the monsters will treat you like the big baby that you are. Or maybe you just want to add some variety to your play experience; to change things up, say by equipping 'Insanity' allowing you to recharge spell charges but start with one maximum HP... Most cards have a benefit and a drawback, so choose carefully. Combine different cards to create your own custom rule set before your run starts.---- THE STORY ----Since the beginning of time, or maybe longer, this place has been here.
