Review: If you like rock climbing in real life or just enjoy playing The Climb in VR you will enjoy playing ‘Tower Ascent’ because that is what this is, it’s a castle tower climbing game. Although it starts off in some sort of weird sci-fi themed room. While the game itself is buggy at times the gameplay is OK and you soon work out what to do and where to go through a process of trial and error. You can then challenge yourself to do it faster if you wish. It’s not a terrible game for £1.99 and you might well get your money’s worth here, but it is important to remember that you are only paying £1.99 so shouldn’t expect anything amazing.
