B-movie by name and B-movie by nature, but there's still enjoyment to be had with the endearingly rubbish enemies and fun but vapid combat.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters contains countless odes to the golden age of sci-fi B-movies, but its gameplay is rote to the core.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is a fleeting experience, but one that no B-movie fan should go without. I have a few issues with the loot and upgrade systems (namely in that they feel superfluous), but as a straight action game, it mostly succeeds in what it sets out to do.

I commend ACE Team for trying to come up with something that's authentic and clever. But the developer only got The Deadly Tower of Monsters halfway right. The excellent premise and likeable characters outshine the streamlined gameplay. ACE Team has something promising here, but it needs to nail the mechanics next time.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters manages to capture B-movie aesthetics perfectly, but ends up falling short due to performance issues on PlayStation 4 and a flawed execution of its gameplay features. The hilarious commentary, however, can be more than enough to make players forget about all of the game's shortcomings.

Fans of classic B-movies would be remiss to pass on this quirky action title. Its personality and charm make it worth playing through on their own.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is not the tightest 3D hack-and-blast arcade homage you'll ever play, but it is the only one to feature puppies dressed as deadly hoovers, amazing stop-motion dinosaurs, and set design to rival Forbidden Planet.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is pretty much an interactive B movie from the 1950s. If you like campy dialogue and wacky enemy designs, then you can't go wrong by spending an afternoon with this one.

While The Deadly Tower of Monsters would've been better with optional camera control, a New Game + mode and more gameplay combos, it's still a fitting tribute to the long-lost era of 50's sci-fi. It's still a fun romp through a crazy world, and it's got one of the better final acts you'll find in a game like this, complete with a twist that will send you for a comical loop. Hop in and enjoy the cheese.
