Product Description

Product Description

There is a Tower that rises above all in an alternate world. No one knows who built this or why it was built. One thing is certain, the Tower both sheds a large shadow and at the same time is filled with moving shadows. There is a shadow of a boy that climbs this tower. He runs through the shadow of the Tower, solves mysteries and puzzles along the way, and fights off enemies that try to impede his progress. The boy is not affected by gravity but his movement is restricted within the thin boarder between light and shadow. The boy is not alone in his endeavors as a creature of light joins him on his quest. A winged sylph known as a “Spangle” supports him in his journey. Lost In Shadow mixes unique platform elements and levels of puzzling, to challenge the player. The combination of light and shadow creates a unique blend of game styles, with the shadow boy altering shapes of surrounding objects’ shadows, creating walkways to previously inaccessible areas, and adventuring into a world never before seen on Wii.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Concept That Ultimately Falls Flat January 14, 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Lost In Shadow is not so much a brand new concept in game design but a homage to past successes. The developers seem to take the basic design from classics like ICO (PS2) and more currently, Limbo (xbox 360) -- both cult hits.

You play as the shadow of a young boy which has been forcibly "removed" from the boy as shown in the opening scenes. Your shadow is banished to the bottom of a tower and now begins your journey to reach the top of the tower and reunite with your body.

In the foreground you see the physical objects that any game would normally consist of, but you actually play and interact in the background, ie the shadows of the foreground objects. The game tries to be a combination of rpg, adventure, action and mostly problem solving, yet by not committing to a single type of game play, I began to grow tired of the varying styles. Some puzzles require you to manipulate the light source coming into the tower so that the shadows of certain objects move which then allows you to advance throughout the levels while other cases require you to actually rotate the screen to gain a new perspective. This was done very well but every now and then the camera angle will move in a way in which you cannot see the depths of the shadows in the background. A little frustrating but not a big problem.

Of course you encounter enemies throughout the way and you mostly fight them with your sword (other times you have to just avoid enemies completely), noting rpg syles. This gets old fast. You collect memories as you go which increases your shadows weight -- similar to a life bar. The music and sound is sparce throughout the game but this actually works to add to the creepiness of the style and really sets the mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful hidden game... January 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Games like Lost in Shadow should be more out there but instead, this game really was "lost in shadow".

+ You play as a shadow of a boy while only being able to travel on shadows and manipulating light to proceed to the next level (You need to collect 3 eye tokens in each level to proceed).
+ It is a RPG because you do level up while having HP (hit points) and EXP (experience).
+ The monsters you fight are well designed & each one has a certain characteristic one must learn to fight accordingly.
+ The puzzles are well planned out. It does take some time.
+ The game (to me) is pretty relaxing. You arn't timed and solving puzzles is actually kinda fun.
+ Lost in Shadow is a lot like LIMBO but a little bit more colourful & friendly.
+ It is a side-scroller, but because of how original it is by only being able to travel on shadows & even manipulating light to form new shadows, it's pretty fun & always keeping me on edge.

This is quite an original game (even thought it's much like LIMBO) & it's a shame this game wasn't as popular as it should have been (like Little King's Story). I highly recommended this game & I can't believe the price I got it for on Amazon...I could see this game as 49.99$ in BestBuy or something. (=

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric Puzzle Game August 16, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Lost in Shadow for the Wii is an intriguing game that has you adventure as the shadow cut off of a young child. It reminds me much of Ico, with its quiet, moody atmosphere.

The game is done in somber tones, browns mostly, and as a shadow you are moving in a fairly horizontal / vertical 2D flat reflection against a far wall. The game plays with this - if you move around a tower your shadow wraps. If you move against a field of near-far objects, your shadow hops back and forth. You have to find shadows of ladders to climb, jump over shadows of spikes, and dodge the shadow enemies.

Much of the game is about tagging certain locations in order to continue. So you scour each level looking for those objects. As with many games, sometimes it's frustrating to go all the way in one direction only to have to haul all the way back to the other. I wish level designers would realize that's just annoying, not fun.

Still, I like the combination of puzzle solving and physics explorations. You can rotate some levels which cause the shadows to change. You can move objects. You gain memories along the way, which increases your health bar.

Yes, sometimes there are things to hang you up. The controls aren't always perfectly responsive. Sometimes you can see what you have to do and it's a matter of timing. But again these are issues common with most games, so you stick with it, get that timing nailed, and feel the satisfaction of moving on.

In an era where many games are full of blaring loud music and screaming obscenities, I greatly enjoyed having a game that's more about thought and shadows and how one looks at the world.

Well recommended.

Rating: 8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Different Platformer September 10, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Not entirely sure why this game scored as low as it did in rankings, or why it is not more popular. As far as I am concerned, it is one of the only Wii games I have played through to completion. Rather amazing for me since I have tried and thrown up on most of the Wii games out there.

The game plays out in much of an "Ico" fashion, if you can understand what that means. Basically, you start the game knowing next to nothing about what is going on. You are a shadow torn from a child and thrown from a tower. Through the course of the game, while you climb the tower you gain bits of knowledge on what is going on.

Gameplay is enjoyable enough. Move with the nunchuck, push buttons on the Wiimote. At random times, you need to point at the screen to move things. All in all, I found the controls to be solid. Thank god it never made me swing at anything or wiggle the idiot stick.

Graphics are good for a Wii game. While you are only looking at shadows and interacting with the background of the game, the foreground has interesting objects and colors which look good and work well. The only downside I really found was the lack of music. There are some intense points where you get a soundtrack, but most of the game just sounds sad and lonely.

All in all, this is one of the games I would put in the Top 5 or 10 on the Wii. If you have the system, and enjoy platforming games, it should be on your list. I got nearly 20 hours out of it (amazingly long game actually) and would easily go back for another playthough.
