Escape from Twump Tower was made by Will Blanton (01010111) for the Ludum Dare 33 contest with the apt theme of "You are the Monster." The story is simple and accurate with a lead like Twump, someone so notorious for his truly outrageous media presence and laughable ideas:
AFTER A SUCCESSFUL REELECTION CAMPAIGN,
PRESIDENT TWUMP FIRES THE ENTIRE USA ON A WHIM.
AFTER GETTING REPORTS OF ANGRY MOBS AT TWUMP TOWER,
HE HURRIES TO RESCUE HIS VAST FORTUNE!
So in an effort to escape with as much of his riches as possible, you must set out on a nice platforming adventure scaling the levels of the tower. Overall the game is great- it has awesome sounds, great music, and wonderful visuals. It's a treat that really hits on what made all those old 16-bit era platforming games so special. How can something so cute be so devious?!?
The downsides, however, are that the controls are a bit awkward and occasionally unresponsive leading to some frustrating moments. There are some small odd physics problems with things either floating or sinking when they shouldn't be and compounding this are item collision issues and where things fall through each other making progress impossible at times.
Despite the negatives Escape from Twump Tower is a tremendous and entertaining small game where you get to live the life of an orange-colored, self-centered, greed-personified, human-like monster known in the real world as Donald Trump...
...and it's absolutely adorable.
