Product Description

Product Description

Break a curse that threatens to transform a beloved friend into a horrific beast in the stylish, dark and captivating Pandora’s Tower for Wii.

Pandora’s Tower blends RPG elements with action-packed gameplay as you assume the role of Aeron, an Athosian soldier facing a deeply personal and emotionally charged mission. With your friend, Elena, bound to a grave fate that is causing her to mutate into a demonic abomination, you’ll feel the pressure of time and the rush of accomplishment as you take up the fight to eradicate the spreading evil that has gripped her. To add to the drama of this melancholic and unconventional adventure, it is only by consuming the remains of monsters Aeron has slain that the cruel curse binding Elena can be reversed.

The world of Pandora’s Tower features 13 gruelling environments to tackle, each one based within a tower structure, and each one home to grim monsters whose flesh takes on a macabre significance in the game’s engrossing plotline. Enemies can be attacked in two ways – with a bladed weapon offering hard-hitting results up close, or with a magical chain possessing uses that extend far beyond overcoming opponents. Aimed by pointing the Wii Remote at the screen, the Oraclos Chain can be used to latch onto elements of the environment, allowing the player to reach new heights, activate levers or pull down parts of their surroundings. The chain also acts as the ultimate restraint when tackling monsters, allowing for innovative combat techniques as you engage in fast and furious real-time battles.

Using his sword and the magical Oraclos Chain, Aeron must defeat the creatures that lurk in the tower and harvest their meat to feed to Elena. Only by eating all of the “master flesh”, harvested from the largest monsters within each tower, will Elena be fully cured of the curse and free from its monstrous grip.

As you progress, the weight of Elena’s predicament will spur you on, her physical appearance becoming more grotesque the longer it takes you to overcome each tower. Minutes matter as you race to bring her the remains of your foes, an on-screen indicator changing colour to warn you of how advanced the mutation is becoming in your absence. When you’re with Elena, your interactions will determine the strength of your overall relationship, a bond which could vary dramatically and will result in the game coming to one of numerous alternate endings.

Items collected throughout your journey can be traded with Mavda, a mysterious merchant carrying a strange skeletal creature on her back, who comes to your aid. With her, you can upgrade your weapons and even create new items by combining two or more items that you have found on your journey. The items that you have discovered while exploring the towers can be given to Elena as gifts to increase your affinity or be used help you on your quest to battle the 13 masters.

Enter the shadowy world of Pandora’s Tower on Wii for a novel adventure experience that demands your devotion as a player. As time ticks away, the fate of your friend grows all the more unthinkable and the effects of evil stare you in the face even as you fight to suppress them. Do you have the heart for a fight that is guaranteed to get personal?

  • Experience a dark and original RPG adventure, where you must break a curse that threatens to transform your friend into a demonic beast.
  • Explore and survive 13 towers, defeating enemies and traversing your environment with a combination of swordplay and by using a magical chain that boasts multiple uses.
  • Feel the weight of a dynamic relationship in which your actions have a direct visible effect on your friend, Elena. Race against time to save her.

In celebration of communication with loved ones, a set of 5 specially themed e-card images were created. Featuring Aeron, Elena, Mavda and some key pieces of artwork from the game, this unique set of images can be shared with your loved ones - although user discretion is advised and it may be a good idea to ensure that the recipient already knows a thing or two about the concept of the game...

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable game 3 May 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Info:
- this review is free of spoilers but touches on the basic plot line which is revealed at the very outset of the game.
- i have played almost half way into the game

Review

Every game is different so for this one I will review it based on what I think stands out.

Artistic Style
This game looks good. The camera angle at times is so scenic that you just have to stop and take a good look at the screen. The environments are varied and nice to look at the artistic style of the characters is anime style and done very well. The enemies are cool too. The environments are not cartoony- they look really good and the dynamic camera angle really helps bring out the variations in the environments and adds to the fun.

Overall setup
This is quite a unique game in terms of its story and actual system of gameplay - that you are constantly fighting against time. You don't have an extreme sense of urgency that you can't enjoy the different areas but you will feel pressured if you spend too long in one of the towers and will have to return to the protagonists sweetheart to save her from a horrible fate. The timer is on the lower left of the screen and it takes I would say at least a good 20- 30 minutes to reach almost empty so you will know exactly how quick you have to get moving. Fighting bosses with only a tiny bit of the timer remaining is actually quite exciting and really builds tension.

Gameplay
If you have watched any videos of the gameplay for this game you might be in two minds. I think the game FEELS a lot better to play yourself rather than watch. You will get a number of different weapons. These weapons all have only one standard combo. However there is also a strong hit which you do by holding the a button.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable play. 1 Jun 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game for well over a week now and find it hard to put down the controller. It is a very good story behind it and by having only a few different characters I found it a lot easier to follow the plot. The way that the towers are done are all different, although there are some elements which are common between a couple of them. It has good game play in that there is the chance to go back to any of the towers and collect any materials you might need to create items and upgrade the weapons which is always handy.
positives:
+ Different storyline
+ Not many characters
+ Able to go back to towers without backtracking too much
+ Easy to use controls
+ Lots of useful extras

Negatives
- Poor graphics in some areas
- Some cut scenes a bit repetitive

Overall a good game that I'd recommend to anyone who loves rpgs likes Neverwinter Nights, Zelda, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked gem 3 July 2012
By Jay
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As the Wii approaches its end, original role playing games seem to be landing left and right. Xenoblade has its grand vistas, The Last Story has its amazingly natural dialogue, and Pandora's Tower well it has Elena. The aim of the game being to prevent a curse from turning her into a monster. To stop the curse you take control of the semi-silent protagonist Aeron; for the most part he's a bit like Link from the Zelda series or the vault dweller from fallout 3 but in scenes with drama he does talk. It's a nice halfway house that sets out to give you the immersion of playing the part of the character while at the same time allowing for dramatic scenes to feel fluid and not like a series of button prompts. Armed with the mystical oraclos chain, given to you by a creepy old woman named Mavda you are instructed to collect the flesh of beasts from the towers for Elena to chow down on. You soon find out that said beast flesh is only a temporary solution; it only delays the effects of the curse for 30 or 40 minutes. The only way to truly break the curse and save the day is to obtain flesh from the masters lying in wait at the top of each of the thirteen towers.

The aforementioned towers are guarded by enemies and puzzles, in order to reach the final room of each tower the plucky hero must first unseal the rooms containing the dangerous creatures known as the masters. This is achieved by destroying a handful of pedestals which ground the chains barring entrance to the final room of a tower. As you begin scaling the towers you will notice two things, the first is that each tower corresponds to an element a bit like The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time's fire temple, water temple, forest temple etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last great game on Wii 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I cannot be happier with this game. Admittedly I have not completed it yet bu have got half way through and spend over 20 hours on it so far.

Personally I really enjoy this game, the towers are well designed, there is a very good plot and the relationship of the main characters are a joy. The controls are well executed and the use of the motion controls on the Wii remote are arguably the best of any Wii game. The weopons provide different approaches to taking on enemies but the boss battles standout in this game. Better than boss battles in most games including the Zelda series. They are very cleverly designed and each requires a different tactic to defeat.

There are also RPG elements, upgrading it weopons, buying items, leveling up etc.

Don't be put off by mixed critic reviews, this game is worth trying for yourself and certainly one of the best adventure games on the Wii.
