The Deadly Tower of Monsters is released for Playstation 4! In this action/adventure game, you play as Dick Starspeed, Scarlet Nova, or THE ROBOT in a legendary Sci-Fi B-Movie directed by Dan Smith. There are 2 modes to play in: Original, which is a Film Grain effect similar to a VHS, and Post-Processing Setting, which is DVD quality.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is framed as a 1970s sci-fi film – directed by the fictional Dan Smith and starring Jonathan Digby, Stacy Sharp, and a no name actor – that features all the charm and cheesiness of your favorite B-movie. After crash-landing onto the hostile planet of Gravoria, fearless hero Dick Starspeed must deftly navigate the treacherous landscape in order to rendezvous with his trusty sidekick Robot. They eventually meet up with the fiery Scarlet Nova, and must ascend the eponymous Deadly Tower of Monsters in order to stop the cruel Emperor of Gravoria.


The game is a throwback to early video game graphics and design. It reminds me of an 8-bit video game console type game. The Deadly Tower of Monsters is narrated as if it is a Director’s Cut of a Sci-Fi B-Movie. While the commentary is witty, at times, it is often repetitive.

Deadly Tower of Monsters

As you travel up the Deadly Tower of Monsters, various Hollywood adversaries are thrown your way. You must defeat them in order to be rejoined with your team. While the game may be a little old-school for some, there are plenty of monsters to beat up along the way.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is available digitally on PlayStation Network and Steam in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. While the game is normally priced at $14.99, it is discounted for ~33% from today until Feb. 2. For more information about the game, please visit:
