A great tower has risen from the Earth! And with it echoes a challenge.

“If you feel thyself worthy to ascend to godhood, face my trial.”

Help guide a small gladiator armed with only a buckler shield to the peak of this treacherous tower.

Your character's tool of choice, the unassuming buckler shield, provides a unique balance of both defense and offense.

Ricochet the small shield with style to dispatch enemies and clear rooms as you progress to the tower's highest point.

While unarmed, perform tactical dodge rolls to avoid the many hazards unleased by your foes.

The Imp:
Summoned beast of the underworld.
Small in stature, quick to overwhelm.

The Cyclops:
Children of the Tower God.
Powerful in magic, but vulnerable after its use.

The Satyr:
Nimble and ornery servants.
Steer clear of their forceful headbutts!

The Nymph:
Grudge holding nature spirits.
Attacks with terrible roots and vines.

"A true challenge of patience and determination"

I believe the game's strongest trait is its difficulty and the simplicity of it. With just a frisbee of a shield, rolling and geometry, the challenge face is indeed a tough one. Every defeat was an invitation to outdo myself.

The aesthetics of the game are captivating with the color palate being calm and the enemies/character having their unique animations that captures your eye. With just a few enemies, you've created diverse rooms that ask the player to come up with on the spot solutions. The music is peaceful and I enjoy this because it allows me to focus more on the sounds of what is occurring around me.

Overall the game is a great time spender with a taste for victory always lingering. I've yet to complete the tower, but I know that one day... I WILL...


Really good game, very fun, one of the best I have ever played in this site so far, I personally love chamber based games and this does it so well, good variety of enemies, a fun mechanic having to choose between the safety of the shield and the ability to dodge.

The graphics are nice and the design of the enemies and the Hero are very unique, at first i wasn't sure about the relatively relaxed music but then I noticed it works very well for a "Shield hero" really well crafted, congratulations.


Congrats on the release.


Awesome game!
