The Tower of Beatrice | Review

On July 31st, The Tower of Beatrice will release on consoles for the first time. We were able to get our hands on a review copy prior to launch and want to give you our impressions of the game a little early. I’ll run through the story briefly to avoid spoilers, go over the main features, review the achievements, and give you my overall thoughts. So let us begin with the story. 

Story

Working on a contract for a mysterious client, you’ll need to infiltrate the tower of the powerful sorcerer Beatrice, steal her Book of Recipes, and get out alive. Along the way, you will enter a demon’s dreams to discover his most intimate desires, accept a gift from a Granny-spider, start the Clock Tower, feed a snail, make a tea for a demon, piece together a skeleton, and finally fix your own fatal failing.

What I thought

First thing first. Full disclosure. This game is F&(%!N@ hard. I am not kidding. If it was not for YouTube, I don’t think I could have finished the review. Oh, and my wife. She loves these Point-and-Click games and she is not only the good looking one but also the smart one.
 
The game starts you off real easy on the first level with obvious solutions. Then Beatrice goes full B!t(h mode one you. The gameplay is simple as it sticks with the control schemes used by most Point-and-Click titles. The stand out is the crazy insane puzzles and some of the humor thrown in is kind of funny. 
 
If you like the old style Point-and-Click games that were all the rage on PC’s a while back, then this is the game for you. I think its coming in just under $7. But, If you don’t like games that are very hard in puzzles and the Point-and-Click games you might want to stay away.
