Tor Challenge is a platform game released on 16 July 2008.
Trainee monks, Henhui, Ziren and Damen, must climb and battle their way up six towers. Each tower houses five mystical seals, which the monks must attain to achieve enlightenment. They must use all of their agility and unique fighting styles to vanquish the mythical creatures and master monks that the towers contain.
Before beginning a game, the player selects one of the three trainee monks to control. Each character progresses through the game separately: Henhui may have collected 13 seals and reached Tower Four, but Ziren could simultaneously have collected 25 seals and reached Tower 6.
- Henhui is about average in terms of speed and power. His attack can strike downwards, so this can be a great help on stairs. Unfortunately, his air attack is quite mediocre, and he must stay on the ground to be effective. He can take on very large groups of enemies as long as the attacks approach him from one side. He will have trouble blocking enemies falling on him and boulders from red and blue thudders. However, he is quite adept at holding off large numbers of rocketeers and incoming spitter missiles.
- Ziren is the quickest of the three, but her attacks are the weakest. This makes her weak against thudders. Her spinning strike will strike anything behind her as well as in front, and can even hit through walls. While attacking in the air, her attack rate is considerably higher. She can jump into very large groups of enemies and take minimal damage. Also, her increased power mode is arguably the strongest, because she gains Damen's damage yet retains her high attack rate.
- Damen is the slowest trainee, making him weak against rocketeers, but also the most powerful. He can block damage from enemies and spitter missiles by holding down the down arrow key. However, he cannot strike anything below him on the stairs, and his blocking ability cannot block damage from the highest level spitter's missiles or from master monks. It is worth noting that his jump is executed in two parts, which holds potential for a few useful maneuvers.
Note: Only Damen and Henhui can use charge attacks.
Coins give the monk points. Bronze coins are very common, and can be found all over the place or after killing a basic enemy. Silver coins are less common in the earlier towers, and will be dropped by a more difficult enemy. Gold coins are quite rare, and will usually be dropped by the toughest enemies. Jade coins are extremely rare; only three exist in the entire game, and they are usually hidden away, guarded by the toughest sorts of enemies.
Tips and Tricks
A special technique, sometimes called the "boost jump", can be performed by jumping and immediately holding the attack key down. This technique gives approximately a metre to your jump, and it is the only way to reach some hidden 1-Ups and jade coins. It can also be used as a shortcut on nearly every Tower.
By running before a boost jump, a technique called the "long jump" can be performed. This jump is just as high as the boost jump, but because of the running beforehand, the jump can go a great distance forwards.
|Runner||Simply gets in the way.|
|Spitter||Occasionally spits an orange ball of fire that can be dissipated by an attack or guarding (Damen only).|
|Occasionally spits a yellow ball of fire that travels faster than the orange one. It can be dissipated by an attack or guarding (Damen only).|
|Occasionally spits a red ball of fire that travels faster than the yellow one. It cannot be guarded or dissipated.|
|Thudder||It will deal two points of damage if touched.|
