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!

This is why I love Newgrounds, because of amazing flash artists/programmers who put so much of their time into this little games for our enjoyment. This is an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GAME!! I have not gotten that far in the game, but its amazing none the less. I do plan on finishing, just dont have the time right now to do so.

The combat style is a nice change from the normal RPG and how it incorporates real-time strategy to the mix, sets this game above and beyond others of this genre. I really wish other games would try something new and out of the ordinary (like this one) because it seems everything is just kinda meshing together xP

If any complaints at all, it may be that the characters may take awhile to respond to your orders, but that is most likely my laptop being gay xP haha!

Keep up the great work, I look foward yo your future games! :D

Great job!

First of all, to Legenden-Gotland...Click on the Save Slot, then click Enter.

Now, Septenary, Congrats on getting this finished. I believe has turned out to be a fine game indeed and I think you should be proud. Other than that, I believe Caedo summed things up quite nicely in his review:

"...I think this is "too good" to be truly appreciated on Newgrounds, as in, TT:A has become such a great and complex game, that the masses of 12-y/o's will 0-bomb it because they are either jealous of your ability, frustrated with their inability to beat it due to the difficulty, or they got so tied up with one little issue, that it caused them to hate the game as a whole for no legitimate reason.
I truly look forward to any games you make in the future, as I have since I played TT;T...whether they are for Newgrounds or otherwise. You have made a very good game here; do not let the scores convince you otherwise."

Rated 4 / 5 stars

mission is bugged

the moderate mission in the fields when your returning from the mainland is bugged so that it fails to alocate xp or save when you finish it. It just shows all the party members as Alerand and with +999 exp and none of the buttons work on that screen.

Apart from that good RPG, i enjoyed it quite a lot and would have given it higher if it wasn't for that problem.
