After the initial success of the Kickstarter project, the second phase - or "floor" as it's fittingly called - has been completed by releasing the AmigaNG-ports of the game. Congratulations, Pixwerk!
"Tower 57" by Pixwerk (Marco "Benitosub" Pappalardo and Thomas "Cyangmou" Feichtmeir, Amiga ports by "Daytona-Daniel" Muessener) looks like a mixture of The Chaos Engine, Metal Slug, and Maniac Mansion.
It has some interesting gameplay features, like swarms, spreading fire, and electricity. The environment is destructible, and destruction as well as debris and empty gun shell casings will remain permanently. Players can shoot in any direction while moving, and there's an emphasis on dual player cooperation.
Reviews for "Tower 57" are very positive, it has a metacritic rating of 72, and was nominated for a "Worth Playing" award at the E3 2017.
For only 11.99 US Dollar (or more, if you like) you can get this colorful, dieselpunk-style, fast-paced, 16-bit-pixel-art top-down shooter for AROS/MorphOS/AmigaOS4 at:
Also available for AmigaOS4, MorphOS, Windows, Mac (see link).
Linux and console versions under development.
