Adventure through the shadows.

Synopsis

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 casts 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, solving mysteries and puzzles along the way, and fighting off enemies that try to impede his progress. The boy is not affected by gravity but his movement is restricted within the thin border between light and shadow....

There is a winged sylph known as a “Spangle” that supports him in his journey. The boy is not alone in his endeavors as this creature of light joins him on his quest...

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, different game April 11, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Lost in Shadow is fantastic, and I found myself stopping to look at the breathtaking visuals as much as playing. It is a very simple game in that the controls are standard platforming. Timing your sword swings and calculating distance is necessary for beating the shadow creatures in your way, but the real beauty of this game is the mindbending task of really focusing on the background shadows and exploring everywhere. The one downside I have noticed is that you have to be perfectly standing over a switch or memory to hit the button, but that is really a minor issue overall.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing January 29, 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Lost in Shadow was one of my most anticipated games of 2011. I told all my friends about it. I even told one of my teachers. And I bugged the guys at gamestop all week waiting for them to give me the game I had preordered. I like to think that I had realistic expectations, though, all I really wanted was good platformer with some creative uses of the shadow mechanics. Sadly, Lost in Shadow fell short of my lowest expectations.

The games most noticeable failings is in combat. In game, you'll pick up a sword to deal with other shadow creatures that dwell in the mysterious tower. You'll only have a three hit combo to dispatch enemies with, but it's often not enough to kill the average enemy (spiders, early on), after slashing at an enemy you'll be stuck in place for about half-a-second, just enough time for the enemy to hit you back. You can eventually adjust your timing (or you can level up), but this makes every enemy encounter tedious.

The other problem this game has is level design. To proceed from each area, you must find three "Keys" to unlock the "Door" to the next level of the tower. One will be easy to find, but the other two are usually located on opposite ends of the level. You'll usually come to a fork in the road, you better pick the right path to take, or else you'll have to backtrack because there's a switch that you need to pull at the opposite end of the level to advance. It's almost as if the game developers thought they had a good game and that we'd enjoy having to walk all over every single inch of the level.

Speaking of which, I usually give mercy points to a game that tries to be "artsy," but save for a few parts, Lost in Shadow is very dull. I hope you like industrial machines, because you'll be hearing the "Whrrr, CLANK! Whrrr, CLANK!

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.
