Despite a lack of solo content, few games are as entertaining with friends
Towerfall knows exactly what it is, and though some may bemoan the lack of online play, it just wouldn't be the same with it. If you're buying it to play alone, you're not going to get the benefit of the full experience, but if you have friends and a few controllers, you'll be hard pushed to find a better multiplayer experience around at the moment.
Freed from being a system exclusive on a console nobody owns, TowerFall can now take its place among the best couch competitive games of all time
"TowerFall" ascension is a must-buy for PS4 owners, but there's a caveat. You have to have local friends who are ready and willing to play it, not to mention four $60 controllers. If you have all of that, prepare to have some of the most multiplayer fun available on a gaming console. But in today's online-heavy gaming landscape, that's not the easiest thing to find.
I wasn't expecting much from the single player campaign, but Matt Makes Games has done a terrific job of retrofitting AI enemies that perfectly complement the game's fantasy art style and existing mechanics.
Towerfall's fun multiplayer sets up hilarious face-offs with your friends.
If you remember when "multiplayer" meant friends and a multitap, Towerfall: Ascension will fill you with glee. With its healhty dose of old-school adversarial local multiplayer, fans of games like Powerstone or Super Smash Bros should already have Towerfall: Ascension in their libraries. .
A games that it's as fun as it was on Ouya, but is even bigger. One of the most enjoyable couch coop games on Switch.

Towerfall Ascension is a fast and frantic multiplayer game that provides lots of interesting variations on its enjoyable archery combat--just make sure you have a few friends on hand to play with.
TowerFall Ascension is a game that relies heavily on your social life. The mechanics are entertaining, the presentation is charming, and the whole affair is top fun – assuming that you have some friends to play with. The lack of an online option is a great shame, but don't let that deter you from the Quest mode, which is still good fun played solo. You'll need pals to get the most out of this package, though, as multiplayer is where the release really shines.
