PS Vita Release: Silly Tower (Homebrew Game, KyuHEN competition entry)
Veteran Vita Developer CPasJuste released Silly Tower, a Tricky Towers-like for the PS Vita. Silly Tower participates in the KyuHEN Vita Homebrew competition, a contest with more than $1700 in cash prizes. The KyuHEN competition is now officially over, but we’re catching up on a few of the releases from the past few days.
SillyTower uses CPasJuste’s own 2D C++ engine, libcross2D, which is compatible with the Nintendo Switch and PSVita as well as other platforms (If you’re a Homebrew dev, you should give it a look). You can also get the source code for the game at https://github.com/Cpasjuste/sillytower
