Shad'O

  • Summary: Tower Defense games are fairly common these days but despite the rigidity of their design, developers still manage to take the basic tenets of the genre and make some interesting titles. Sanctum , Anomaly: Warzone Earth , and Plants vs. Zombies have all been distinct and enjoyable games. Even Orcs Must Die! and Dungeon Defenders did something unique by adding third-person action to the mix.

Shad’O Review (PC)

Softpedia
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Shad’O, a tower defense title created by Okugi Studios and available on the PC via Valve’s Steam, shows how the genre can transcend its origins and deliver fast-paced gameplay that has some depth while also trying to tell a story that involves childhood, memories, the march of adulthood and the fantasies we build to protect ourselves.
  • Pros: + Solid tower defense mechanics, + Narrative potential
  • Cons: - Lacks innovation, - Too serious

Expert Review

GameSpot
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Shad'O is a game of hints and allusions, a game where you're never sure what's going on or what's coming up. The story of Shad'O is revealed in little snippets upon completion of a level; nothing is made too clear right away, because this game is all about revealing (or, more accurately, protecting) memories in the mind of a little boy. As you progress, more and more is revealed about the boy's story, what happened to his memory, and who he actually is.
  • Pros: Solid tower defense gameplay, Aesthetically pleasing, Good storyline told in an interesting way
  • Cons: Lacks hotkeys, Poor translation from French

  • Excerpt: С каждым годом популярность игр в жанре Tower Defense растет в геометрической прогрессии. И самое интересное заключается в том, что проекты, несущие знамя этого ныне популярного движения, несмотря ни на что, удивляют и радуют своей оригинальностью! И примером тут могут послужить многие – великолепная и увлекательная Plants vs. Zombies , безумная Orcs Must Die! , а так же очень сложная пиксельная забава Revenge of the Titans .
