Tower of Greed

Author Comments

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.


Arrow Keys or WASD to move
Space or J to jump/confirm

Enter or P to pause

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.


Very addictive. o_o

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

thank you

I see you finally fixed the issue with the medals... thanks for doing it! Now the game is a whole lot better. I like pretty much everything about the game. I've seen a lot of games like this one, but this one is one of the best.

This is awesome!

Who knew being greedy could be so fun? Oh yeah, more than 100,000 people! I love how the moral of the story (greed kills) is worked into the gameplay, making it seem more important. I did not find any problems with the game, and to those complaining, you have to actually exit the Tower of Greed to earn the medals, both in-game and Newgrounds related! So as soon as you get one, head for the nearest exit so you don't die and lose it.
