Arcana of Paradise ーThe Towerー, the real-time roguelike deckbuilding adventure developed by Tasto Alpha and published by SHUEISHA GAMES, has just released the first major update for the Steam version of the game, including the heavily requested hard mode, “The Path of Purgatory” to the game.
The Path of Purgatory Updates:
Face the Ultimate Challenge
Much requested by the community, a new challenge awaits in The Path of Purgatory. This new difficulty option will power up The Tower’s deadly inhabitants with devastating new moves, as well as more aggressive tendencies, as well as causing all cards to have a chance to tear on use. Successfully completing a run of the game on The Path of Purgatory will even unlock a unique reward. Players can change the game’s difficulty at any time via a new building in the commune.
Race to the Bottom
Players can now complete their runs in record time by utilizing a new “Double Time” mechanic to pass the time inside The Tower much faster. However, this can be a double-edged sword as enemies will attack much faster!
Finish the Arcana Collection
Each event and foe in The Tower can be solved in multiple ways, but unless solved in a specific way, will not reward their collection card. It can be hard to remember which cards were collected once on the run, so a notification has been added to help players finish their collections.
Improved Video Settings
To better serve players on various setups and wide-screen monitors, new resolution settings and the ability to select from the windowed, borderless windowed, and fullscreen display has been added.
