Day 4: Your guilty pleasure game

What is it with me, mazes, impossibly hidden shit, and fascinating 8-bit atmosphere? Beats me, but I had an unnatural affection for Deadly Towers although it was an unforgiving pain the ass. I was more about wasting time in its hypnotic world rather than making any focused effort to beat it fair and square. My time spent with the game involved lots of aimless wandering, with or without the password cheat god mod that gave you all the best equipment with two simple letter changes. I went after the bosses a couple of times with that equipment set, but the big guy always squished me flat.

Check out this thread of fond nostalgia for this game, including homemade maps, and a tool-assisted speed run showing off some of the music, environments, and hidden areas I never managed to find.
