The world of Pandora’s Tower features 13 gruelling environments to tackle; each one based within a tower structure; and each one home to grim monsters whose flesh takes on a macabre significance in the game’s engrossing plotline. Enemies can be attacked in two ways – with a bladed weapon offering hard-hitting results up close; or with a magical chain possessing uses that extend far beyond overcoming opponents. Aimed by pointing the Wii Remote at the screen; the chain can be used to latch onto elements of the environment; allowing the player to reach new heights; activate levers or pull down parts of their surroundings.
