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!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

It's ok.

I'm not absolutely in love with this game, but I do like the simple animation and strategic gameplay. I'll give it an 8 and a 4.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not in love but I like it

The gaining system is really good and the cinemas are a very nice touch, but the actual meat of the game is a bit on the boring side. Also, I agree with jpuroila's comment: the controls scheme is a bit clumsy. Even just moving with the arrow keys and fighting with the mouse (for the currently selected character) would go a long way to making the battles feel more alive.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

pretty good

I like this game both artistically(both visual and music) but the control scheme feels clumsy. I don't like using mouse for both attacking and moving.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Good shift away from turn base fighting however still allows pause to choose skills.

great work
