It’s a unique experience for sure. the best way to describe Tower Tag is to take laser tag and bring it into VR while throwing a little bit of Spiderman. How the game works is you have two teams and the goal is to get the high score in team deathmatch or capture the flag type game where you have to possess a specific Tower from another team. It sounds simple, and it is, but that’s where the magic comes in. See, in order to progress across a map, you need to capture the various towers that are all over the map. Need is the keyword here as you literally cannot move without targeting one of these towers and yanking yourself to the various towers via a rope tether. It’s a bizarre setup to get a grasp on at first, but once you do, you’ll be swinging from tower to tower like a futuristic Peter Parker.
In terms of combat, it’s limited to one weapon. Your laser pistol is the only method of attack you have, but it’s plenty of fun to use so that is not that big of a deal. You will have limited coverage on each tower, so it’s very important you make your shots count. Headshots will do a ton of damage and usually drop your enemies in one or two shots while body shots take from four to five shots to down them. Teams can be up to 4v4 as well as smaller games of 2v2 or 1v1. Adding a twist into the deathmatch formula is the elimination mode which gives you one life and if you lose, it’s spectator mode until the next match. I felt this mode was particularly out of place in a game like this because there are so few places to hide and not really many tactics to set up with your team considering the small map and limited places you can travel to. The core gameplay of hide and seek and shoot is addictive.
