* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', you have to accend the ''Seven Thousand Steps'', the path circling around the tallest mountain in all of Tamriel that can be seen in the distance from almost any point in Skyrim. Somewhat unusual as you have to climb the mountain near the beginning of the game to get your powers as TheChosenOne. You'll have to return to the peak later in the story, but that time you can simply skip most of the ascend by fast traveling to the monastery just below the top.

* The Sunspire in ''VideoGame/{{Unreal I}}'' is very tall, and you get a good sense of scale when you get to the top, thanks to the game's level design and fairly powerful 3D engine. Unusually for the trope, it's an area visited around mid-game, nowhere near the ending.

* ''TheTowerOfDruaga''. Essentially the entire game is climbing up a 60-floor tower. The AnimatedAdaptation takes this UpToEleven: the original NES game is available as an arcade game on ''one'' of the floors, which are divided in multiple ''groupings'' of floors filled with monsters and traps. And then [[spoiler: there's ''another'' tower on top of this one where the ''true'' BigBad resides]].

** ''VidoeGame/FinalFantastyLegend'' is all about this, literally. Many adventurers have tried climbing the tower, and your party is only the latest in a long line. Each "world" involves a long quest to get the key to unlock the next floors of the tower, which lead to the next world. Once all the keys have been obtained, you have to climb ''ludicriously'' high up the tower (fighting powerful monsters all the way) before finally facing off against [[RageAgainstTheHeavens the final boss.]]

* Ditto for the original ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' and all of its remakes, nearly half the game consisting of climbing Darm Tower in pursuit of Dark Fact.
** ''Ys Origin'' took it to its logical conclusion: the entire game is a tower climb.

* In SuperMarioBros, many of the castle and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tower]] levels are this. Which in the ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' series means there's at least one tall tower, maybe even two per world.

* ''KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' is going up on a castle. In the PS2 remake, the floors are actually used to subdivide the cutscene in the Theater Mode. And there are thirteen floors. Get it? ''Organization XIII'', ''thirteen floors''? Yeah. Although you just face 6 of them anyway. Also [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/kingdomhearts/images/1/10/Hollow_Bastion.jpg Hollow Bastion]] or [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/kingdomhearts/images/4/43/Kh2-world-that-never-was.jpg the Castle That Never Was]] (yes, you have to climb to the top of THAT), in ''Kingdom Hearts'' 1 and 2, respectively.
