Towerfall is an arena multiplayer platform fighting game for two to four players. It draws on inspirations like SNES platformers, the Smash Bros series, and the fighting game genre to weave a simple, elegant, and ridiculously fun and hilarious party-fighting-game. You have absolutely got to play it.
- Available on Steam for Mac, Windows, and Linux – $15
- Available on the PS4, currently free as a part of the PlayStation Plus subscription (normally $15)
