Looking for the enhanced stand-alone version of Big Tower Tiny Square? Check it out on Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/751250/Big_Tower_Tiny_Square/

After the events of Big Tower Tiny Square, the villainous Big Square has fled to his giant Ice Tower in order to escape Tiny Square's revenge!

Dodge bullets, leap over deathly-cold water, and wall-jump your way up the Big ICE Tower in this tough-but-fair sequel to Big Tower Tiny Square. Precision is key to success! No sprint, no double-jump, and no floaty controls! Just quick deaths and generous respawn points.

Like it's predecessor, Big ICE Tower Tiny Square is heavily inspired by single-screen arcade games. The game is one giant level broken up into large single-screen sections. Each obstacle has been meticulously designed. It will take precision and skill to navigate the maze-like tower.

Pretty nice game in general!

The mechanics are pretty basic modern platformer mechanics, with regular jumps, wall jumps, and a series of different obstacles, but the game utilizes them pretty well. First of all, because every platforming section is carefully made to be challenging (even frustrating at times) but never in an unfair way (that is, the mechanics are consistent, nothing catches you by surprise, and trial-and-error is kept to a minimum). A few parts are really, really unforgiving, but never unfair.

Another very interesting thing is how we can see a lot of the playing field at once, by virtue of the tiny sprite. That, for some reason, gives us an awesome perspective of just how huge an endeavor is ahead of our little square friend, making us all the more satisfied when we finally finish climbing that gargantuan tower.

Other than the gameplay, there's also the song that plays throughout the game, and it is pretty awesome. It kept me pumped from beginning to end, being appropriately epic while still evoking a bit of a Christmas spirit with the typical bells. It loops a bit strangely (it sounds like it stops for a fraction of a second before looping), but that didn't bother me too much.

The graphics are basic, but they do their job, and there's something appealing about a game where we can see so much at once, even if the single elements of the thing we're looking at are all basic.

So yeah, definitely give this a try. It's not perfect, though, and it can get frustrating.



Hey, didn't you HATE the ice levels in old platformers? Well what if we made the whole GAME into an ice level, that way you're sure to like it through Stockholm syndrome.


People find this review helpful!

I think this one was easier. But damn my hand hasn't hurt so much since Jlaw's fappening happened (or the previous game).

Music was kinda annoying.



Excellent game. Level of difficulty is challenging and quite hard to finish the whole game. But overall really well-done!



Love it! Really good! Great puzzles. Like a mini, low-fidelity Meat Boy. Very difficult. I beat the game, but I still don't fully understand all of the controls to be honest. I found the puzzles designs and the twist 2/3 through really satisfying. It made me respect your puzzle designs more, that's for sure.
