Your goal is to escape the infamous Tower of Greed, while collecting as many valuable gems as possible. There is an exit on every 5th floor, so you may choose when and where you wish to exit with your wealth. Be careful, though, not to let your greed overwhelm you. After all, money and death don't mix.

Space or J to jump/confirm

Menus are also mouse-enabled.

Special thanks to Mike Taylor for his original sound tracks created specifically for this game, he did a fantastic job. Check out his profile for other great music as well, he's good stuff.

Done it !!!

Whooow ... took me quite a while, but i finaly made it to Stage 100.

Its very hard to get there ... only advice I can give:
- make this game fullscreen (as big as possible) it will dramatically slow down when screen is scrolling (but boosts when you take a timefreeze clock)
- play in survival mode and take a lot of those exits (choose "store gems" and you will start again (but starting at the level you got into the exit).
Note: if you die YOU DONT GET NOTHING!!! Eventhough it says you got to L bla bla and earned bla bla gems ... you dont get them! (its a tiny bug i guess).

Oh ... and after a while you will find out, that most lvl are the same ... really a pitty, that "the good" ones only come later in game (where a lot of jumping mobs present stamp you into the ground).

Anyway... I really love this game! Its soooo addicting. Too bad, that there is nothing like a savingpoint where you can explore further hights of this game.

10/10 + 5 (every day ;) )

Rated 5 / 5 stars

i just can't stop playing it !!

This is a VERY addictive game !!!
I think what i love the most about this game is the " greed " factor. Its all about stragedy and weather you should cash in all your gems and jewels and exit the tower...or go those 5 more floors and see if you can make it.

The graphics are quite nice and easy on the eyes and the main character is rather cute ^__^ looks like an albino and more mature version of Kirby.
Fantastic game and extremely addictive !! MUST GET TO 100 FLOORS !!!!

a challenging and addictive platformer

Tower of Greed is a retro-style platformer in which the player (who looks a bit like Kirby) must collect gems and dodge enemies, all while trying not to fall off the bottom of the screen.

The game does not end unless you die or exit the tower (I think), and the levels are dynamically generated. The game gets progressively harder as you climb the tower, but the rewards also become greater.

With 64 in-game achievements and 12 Newgrounds medals to earn, Tower of Greed will definitely keep you busy. Many of those trophies are easy to unlock, but there is one caveat: you must exit the tower alive in order to keep them!

However, there are a few annoying glitches. The ones I've noticed are:

1. Power-ups will sometimes fail to activate, especially right after the player is hit by an enemy.
2. If the player uses the "time stop" just as they fall off the screen, the player will not be able to get back up.
3. The moving floors sometimes do not work.

On the whole, Tower of Greed is an incredible game. I must have spent at least 20 hours on it!

Pros: addictive gameplay, awesome music
Cons: some glitches
