Timothy and the Tower of Mu is an unforgivingly difficult double blend of precision/action platforming and a metroidvania.Climb to the top of the Tower of Mu, fighting to survive against 10 bosses, 50+ unique enemies, and countless traversal challenges. Meet 10 NPC characters on your journey, delving into the story and lore the world has to offer.
If you’re a hardcore player, attempt to complete the entire game, finding all hidden rooms, feeding all 30 pigs, and even fighting a secret boss. This game has an average playtime of 40+ hours for completionists and it is NOT a journey to be taken light-heartedly.
How long is this game?
Please beware that this title is truly unforgiving and is not for the faint-hearted. This game not only has 5 biomes, but an enormous tower outside of these biomes. There is no telling how long it will truly take, but since there are minimal character upgrades, most improvements will have to come from the player refining their skill. This game is undoubtedly a hardcore platformer.
Concept and Gameplay
At its core, Timothy and the Tower of Mu is a retro 2D action platformer geared towards mid and hardcore players. Set in a world that is both cute and creepy, it combines old-school gameplay and classic humor with modern elements such as a cooking system and fourth wall breaks.
Timothy, our protagonist, starts off with a very basic set of abilities, which players can only slightly improve throughout his adventure to the top of the tower. The game is designed in a way to force players to use the environment as well as their developed cunning, to overcome the many challenges presented. Players are encouraged to improve themselves, learn from mistakes, and retry multiple times for which altogether makes for a fulfilling experience.
