Tower's Tactics: Aphelion

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Cyxios paces the halls of his enormous underworld palace. He appears to be speaking to nobody... but a strange, divine presence can be felt. Perhaps it is an embodiment of Kasayel, the great god of bloodshed?

Meanwhile, Chancellus converses with Alerand at The Night Tower, an enormous structure built to guard the mysterious Aphelion Gateway. Chancellus, a winged servant of Kasayel, is becoming restless. He has found a way to exit the tower without leaving it unprotected -- by inhabiting and taking control of a host body. It seems that Alerand is about to become his first host, and several heretics on the nearby mainland are about to die.


"Tower's Tactics: Aphelion" puts you in control of Chancellus and his team of heretic-killing fighters. Battle your way through the enemies to build your team and learn unique skills. Then, fight through arena mode for the high scores!

- Extensive storyline-driven campaign
- Real-time battle system
- 5 unit classes and over 40 unique skills
- Great bitmap graphics
- Several hours of entertaining gameplay time
- Complete custom soundtrack by audio composer "MaestroRage"

Note: This game is the sequel to a 2007 flash game called "Tower's Tactics: Deity's Throne". However, you don't need to play the prequel to enjoy this!


Special thanks to MaestroRage for the music, Madkins for the complete playtesting, Aramek/TomaMoto for the voice acting, and ArcadeTown for the professional sponsorship. Enjoy the game!

i had been waiting so long for the next one...

& the first one was better in many ways>.>

Quite good

Hm, playing only the first few levels I wonder why this is called Tower Tactics, but I guess I just didn't play it long enough. The video sequences are awesome, incedible voice acting, really. And the music is marvellous.
But there's something that's bothering me:
When you want to use a skill you can't read up what this special skill will do, but you can read about the skills used. This resulted in me wasting valuable points and seconds. Maybe you could use a bubble that can be switched off if you don't need it, which explains the skill in game.
As a advice how to reduce lag you tell the viewer to "lower the quality" or something. Maybe I'm blind, but where the hell can you do that? The only option to lower the graphic's quality that I saw was to disable the blood effects. Poor me with only 256MB RAM (yeah, parents are cheap-skates -.-) sometimes gets the impression that this is a Dia-show ; D

All in all a very promising game which I would love to play with a better computer


It gave me a headache though...but overall an awesome game


The game was good but there was a few bugs.


its good better than what Ive seen but keep up the great work
