Description: For decades stories have been told of a castle perched atop an island with no known inhabitants. All who have visited the castle have not returned. Those who have seen the castle at a distance describe a fantastic spire protruding up from it, though no two descriptions of this spire are alike. Some even claim the spire does not exist at all. You have resolved to find the truth of this place, and set out for this mysterious island…

Review: ‘Forsaken Spire ‘ is certainly an odd game indeed, but one that I think I do want to recommend to everyone. You see, this is a climbing game of the likes we have seen more than a few times before, but this time each level of three main themes is randomly generated meaning you will never see the same level twice. While this does indeed give you endless content, that really is all there is to this game. No music, no instructions, no goal at all, just the joy of climbing and discovery. The rawness of the game took a while to get used to, but after a while, I was starting to enjoy it, enjoy the peacefulness of the game. This isn’t so much a game, more a relaxing climbing experience, but one I loved, just maybe not for the full £8.29 asking price. So do keep an eye out for this in the sales as it is worth a look for sure.
