Another nice feature added for the mobs is that they each have there own names and a special name tag above their heads for you to recognize. Not only are the mobs customized, so is the loot included within the tower. So watch out for treasures that might save your life in battle. When the game starts and as you get further into the game, there is a death counter and scoreboard to keep track of your scores and how many lives you have left. In between waves, you’ll be able to visit the shop and spend your XP credits to buy new equipment fitting to help your survival in the next wave. Clear all floors and reach the top for your final fight. At the top of the floor lies the Wither, the Wither that had challenge your instincts to lead you here into the tower.
