Dark Tower is a platform game made for Arcade machines, released by The Game Room in 1992.

Overview Edit

You control a man armed with a club to beat some monsters and rescue a lady at the top of a Tower. You can jump and attack them with your club and after knocking them enough, they can hit other enemies in the same line you knocked in. If you can strike all of your enemies in a single blow, you gain bonus points and bonus items.

Trivia Edit

Despite the game being original in its own, some things inside of game's data are not. Some include:

  • The gameplay is almost identical to some single-screen platformers, such as Bubble Bobble and Snow Bros. Knocking enemies with a weapon is known in Taito's Don Doko Don, which shares the same gameplay features mentioned before;
  • Some monsters was stolen from various Arcade games, such as Black Tiger, Ghosts'n Goblins and Snow Bros. One of the game's fonts is the same of Ghosts'n Goblins;
  • Music, sound effects and voices are the same from Technos Japan's Double Dragon. In fact, it runs on the same hardware as the original game;
  • The Game Room also released another two games using the same hardware: Dangerous Dungeons and Thunder Strike, both sold as conversion kits for Double Dragon. East Coast Coin Co. handled sales of these games in Melbourne.
