Return of the Tower Conqueror
- Sexual Content
August 8th, 2026 -- the day seven mysterious Towers appeared around the Earth, changing the life on it forever. Cain had already lived through it once, experienced the irreversible changes that the world underwent seemingly overnight. Now, for him it is twenty-five years later, while for others it is still three months before the Towers are to appear. Having stolen the Timecube and used it to reverse back the timeline, Cain is now back before it all began -- with the sole difference of already knowing what will happen.
Nobody had managed to discover the mystery behind the Towers even twenty-five years after their appearance, but with the fresh start and advantage, Cain plans to unearth the story behind them, and whoever, or whatever, put them on Earth.

The concept of getting a redo has been done but this one is interesting because the protagonist isn't the traditional gung-ho i'm going to save the world type of person. This made it an interesting twist to see a normal, (in this case despicable) guy try to better his own life. However, I can't stand the protagonist. He has the chance to come back three months before it hits the fan and he does nothing except go into debt, sleep with a random girl in a bar, drink and smoke. The only thing he does is move to a different city and wait. The day comes where it all goes south and guess what, he is still just as out of shape and pathetic as he was three months prior. The fact that he just so happens to run into a billionaire who can solve all his problems is the only reason he has any success.
In summary, I enjoyed the premise, I enjoyed the concept of the towers, I enjoyed the realism that the protagonist doesn't have perfect recall for everything that happened in the past/future. I just find the character completely unlikeable, his ONLY redeeming quality is his competance in magic use but it's not enough to make up for everything else.
So after reading all currently available chapters (51 chapters) ive come to realize a few things, first off, the author never stops talking about how weak the MC is, not only that, he gives the MC opportunity after opportunity to get stronger then just doesnt go through with it, the author also doesnt respond the the comments in his chapters that give constructive criticism and grammar corrections, he ignores the readers advice and continues to push the MC towards being a side character, so in conclusion, if you like MCs who are completely passive and don't do anything, never getting any better, and have a weak mindset, this is the story for you, however if your a normal person who enjoys when the MC acts like an actual main character then you need to leave because you will under no circumstances get that with this god awful excuse of a book
it is like reading kind of dungeon adventure. Dialogs are very good, enjoyable. But there is almost nothing except dialogs. There seems big mysteries like timedude, conquaring towers etc. but with the pace of the story, it will take time to unravel these things so my point is;
there is noting happening except dialogs and show-off item statuses.
where is world-building? Goverment movements against towers? Riots? we only see some of them in TV which characters sloppily describes 'cause MC cant wait to joke so as a reader i couldnt find myself in this novel's world except in-tower scenes.
Another thing is there are pretty solid critics in comments but author seems dont give a shit.
For example there was a thing some thugs tried to attack mc's ex-wife and other team member while we dont know offenser's motivation, are they want to kill? or just rob them? or want to rape? we dont know which mc and his teammates dont know either but they are heal them, giving them items, being buddies and then farewell each other? what is this? picnic? it is describes as tower is dangerous, people are crazy with superpowers and then this tinkerbell sutiation happens and wanted to drop story at that chapter which very criticized in comments but author didnt give shit about it.
No. Just no. I'm not even going to talk about all the usual faults. We're just going to talk about power creep.
There's nowhere for it to go. Dude was like level 20, which isn't shit for this world. And already crafting destruction with spells miles long. All the action is overblown. Which makes all the the action monotonous, dull, boring. And the relationship between the m.c. and ex wife seemed like it would be complicated. Cool, makes sense. Relationships are complicated. But no, it wasn't. I don't want to spoil anything, but this ain't no romance story. Its subpar action at best. Even shounen knows to start small before the world's at stake every single time.
Avoid if possible
First: unusual but worth a read.
The story is about the usual reincarnated stuff. Like he has memories but still has his old body and now changes the things turn.
Here we are not really sure what the end goal is but probably survival and completely climbing said tower.
Unclear is how he changed himself. He has 3 months as a preparation time. But does exactly nothing. Other than a chance encounter which leads to solving quite a few problems further down the road.
The system would need a bit of work. And the mentioned ' shop' didn't have an entrance yet.
The story is filled with plotholes and forgotten prizes , Characters vanish faster than they turn up and the basic conversation theme is: the MC is a dump ass.
In retrospect I am really not sure why I kept reading - it has this flow to things that just keeps you in.
But. This story really opened my eyes in terms of conversation. They feel natural and a bit staged. But more because of how good the flow is and not about how much information is given.
The story had potential at the start, but it rapidly petered out for me. While there are certainly some aspects of the story I enjoy, they’re utterly dwarfed by the glaring flaws. Every single person in the story seems like a caricature. The dialogue feels exactly the same no matter who is talking to who. Probably the worst part is the new billionaire best friend inexplicably enters the timeline who repeatedly and absurdly acts as Dues Ex Machina personified. The constant “banter” with everyone gets old really fast too.
The MC is an idiot, and im not saying that just because his low intelligence stat.
He return 15 years from the future to change his life, and he got three months before the tower appeared, you know what he did? Absolutely nothing, no training, no preparation, nothing. The only thing he did differently was his relationship with his family and getting the class early.
And not to mention the whole random stats bullshit, the mc is 15 level higher than his party member and still somehow has the lowest stats. He complained about it so much but did nothing to change it.
As if right now the only advantage that he has over his party members is his experience, once they spend enough time in the dungeon he'll be as good as useless. And even knowing that he's still did nothing about it. Like dude you're from the future there must be something that can increase your stats, or some rare item that people doesn't know about.
To me it reads as a cringy dubbed over Chinese comedy action movie, and I kind of like that. The dialogue seems off when I read it but it does paint a picture in my head of a young jackie chan, if jackie chan's character was a shit head. I will see where it goes but I'm out if there is a ton of badly written sex scenes.
I read to the airport and was like nope, this needs a rewrite. Also get rid of all the cigarette smoking, this isn't the 80s.
But you put your work out there and that takes guts so kudos to you.
Have to say, the character interactions are one of my favorite parts of any book, and these are on point. The self destructive tendencies, regret over his choices, and determination to do better with his second chance all feel very real. None of the characters are cardboard cutouts.
Plus the world as MMO is done pretty well I think, although it's not a crunchy LitRPG per se.
Also, plenty of dad jokes.
Let me get straight into it
What I like:
The theme (your mileage may vary, I'm a sucker for litrpg's)
The grammar and spelling (haven't seen any glaring mistakes so it's fine)
What I think needs work:
-The dialogue can be truly awful, cringey lines or things that no real human would ever say are littered throughout the story. Really breaks immersion.
-The use of speech marks, speech marks are not there to start and end a sentence, when I see a wall of nothing more than
"blah blah blah."
"blah blah blah?"
then I just glance over the text and skip.
Yes, it's a fictional story with fictional characters in a fictional world, but that doesn't mean that everything goes. The way characters behave shouldn't be drastically different from real life.
Let me sketch you an example:
There's just been a car accident involving babies
You know that you need to call 911, but you and the mayority of people around you freeze up due to the horror of the occurence
The person next to you immediately calls 911 and calmly explains what happens without a shake.
The next line out of your fucking mouth wouldn't be: "WOW, you're so cool, we all froze up, but you didn't, how did you do it?"
But that's the type of shit that I see more often than I'd like reading this.
That's about it, have a nice day.
