Shadowmatic is a mobile puzzle game. The project was developed by the Triada studio. The company has been operating since 1993, but previously it worked exclusively in other industries and this is its debut on this market.
The authors were not bothered by the attempts to create any constituent feature film layer. Instead, it is a pure puzzle game in which we have to solve a large set of puzzles divided into nine stages in the form of various rooms. Each of them has a unique atmosphere, built by full of details graphics and refined musical background. In total, more than 70 levels await the passage. The single player mode structure is not linear and we can always choose between several challenges. Therefore, even if we have a problem with something, it does not stop the fun, because it is enough to try another level.
The rules of the game are unusual, but at the same time quite simple. Starting the challenge, we get an object that is illuminated in such a way that its shadow is clearly cast on the wall. Our task is to manipulate this object in such a way that the shadow obtains a recognizable shape of an object or animal.
At first we play with single objects, but with time their number begins to grow and thus the difficulty in getting the desired shadows increases. The authors have balanced this aspect of the game well and we are never thrown too deep into the water. Instead, the puzzles are slowly becoming more and more complicated, thus forcing more abstract thinking, which makes the game quickly not boring. For less experienced players there is an extensive system of hints.
