Dark Tower arcade game

Post by Shinobi » Sun Sep 16, 2018 1:16 am

Anybody heard of this cure for insomnia?

Long story short I couldn’t Sleep and was playing this via Final Burn on Vita.. Rescue a lady from a Tower as I repeatedly beat the Mummy from Black Tiger, the red demon and troll from Ghosts and Goblins and a green creature from Snow Brothers to death with a baseball bat. As the final boss music from Double Dragon loops

Level 10 the icicle demon from Ghost and Goblins, oh it’s died in 2 hits! Level 20 2 icicle demons who are even easier to beat! Level 40 game resets

2am the score reset still not died, and still no Lady to rescue. Still not died and my finger was going numb

The only original thing is you decend the Tower off to bed then. Then wake up to a new day.

Is it a Stephen King thing? Or just a similar name?

Similar name I believe.. The title screen is the closest the game offers to exposition, as it's shows a shot of the tower with a girl leading idly on the window sill? Maybe she is the Crimson King, the Crimson King looked more like a red grim reaper in the books

She doesn't appear anywhere else in the game. Basically 'Snow Brothers' with recoloured Ghosts and Goblin sprites and Backgrounds
