(Warning: This game may be quite difficult. Play at your own risk!)

Climbing up the stairway in search of revelation, a lone traveler defies a spiteful god residing at the top of the world. Unamused, the indignant deity lays down increasingly difficult laws designed to kill his unwelcome visitor as he ascends toward the moonlit skies. Can you make it to the very top and discover the secrets of this divine structure? May heaven grant you fortune.

i liked it, alot but the damn rules get on my nerves, im not gonna remember to jump left when i need to go that way, and im not a good pinpoint jumper, so i hit the sides alot, im not gonna give this a bad rating cause i cant do it like some assholes do, i liked it alot, just very frustrating for me


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Oh my

That was an amazing game: great idea. The rules were something I've never encountered in any game before; nice graphics. I really enjoyed them somehow; Nice music, I kept listening to it for a while; Good challenge, this game was hard, but not unfair, I managed to beat the game just by practice alone.
If you could be able to port it to a home console, then I would definitely recommend it to my friends and even buy it myself!

All in all this was an amazing game, bravo there!

Hurrah for Hard Games!

As a wise reviewer once said, a game cannot be too hard, it can merely be unfair. Tower of Heaven is always scrupulously fair - it may be decidedly tricky, but every single death you suffer is always, unequivocally, your fault. Skill and perseverance are the only way to proceed, and personally, I love it to bits. What's the point in games being so unthreateningly easy that you can complete them on your first try without even looking at the screen?

Aside from the loving care that's gone into the design of the levels and the programming generally (you can control your character to a tremendous degree of precision, which is vitally important in a game like this), the whole thing looks and sounds smashing. The Game Boy graphics have a character and charm all their own, and the music is joyous, like something that the mighty Chris Hülsbeck might have written on a particularly sunny day. As for the ending, it wouldn't be out of place in a Hayao Miyazaki movie. Utterly lovely, and I shall be returning to see if I can root out the secret bits.
