Warlock’s Tower, an addictive pixel art puzzler, has you trapped in a tower, where route-planning is paramount as every single step you take depletes your heath bar.
You play a mailman called Tim, who is looking to deliver a peace offering to the evil warlock. This warlock lives high up in a mysterious tower, but you venture in anyway as you have a job to do. The warlock has cursed the tower, causing each step to drain some of your life until you waste away completely. The warlock has been kind to you though – he seems to like games – so he dotted magic gems around the room that can restore set amounts of your health.
But watch your step! Each step you take does take one of these hearts, and if you hit a gem the number on the gem is the number of hearts you will have total. That means if you have five hearts and step on a number three gem, you will have your health reduced to three. Soon monsters will start appearing in the tower. Monsters will flash a number above their head in a thought bubble. This number is the number of turns you have before the monster will make its move. It sounds a little complicated, but once you get to grips with it, it’s a very enjoyable and unique take on the genre.
It’s a fun and addictive little game, full of bite-sized puzzles that require some real foresight and planning to conquer. This mailman really is going above and beyond the call of duty in this charming and challenging puzzler!
