What would the seasons be like and how would this effect the polar, temperate and tropic regions? I am writing a paper on what different tilts would do to Earth. Any answers will be appreciated

There is some evidence and reasons why Mars and Venus had extreme axial tilt in the past.

Curiously enough this may have lead to (speculation) very low lattitude glaciation.
