GameTrailers
1 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Lost in Shadow is a platform-puzzle game that has you guiding a character's shadow across a series of esoteric environments. Instead of traveling in the foreground as in most side-scrolling platformers, you are primarily relegated to the background, providing a twist on a familiar genre.

  • Excerpt: Art, is rarely ever planned. Instead, it comes from deep within the psyche and inspiration of the artist themselves. Did Picasso set out to create art during the blue period? No, he painted because he was inspired.

Lost in Shadow Review

7 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Hudson Entertainment’s moody, minimalist platformer Lost in Shadow suffers from “dragging” not only because of inappropriate length but a repetitive nature, foreseeable outcomes, and a really inventive basis for gameplay that stretches thinner than the shadows it employs.
  • Pros: The inventive puzzle mechanic intrigues, Plenty of content
  • Cons: Overstays its welcome, too formulaic

Lost in Shadow Review

  • Summary: Taking a major cue from the atmosphere and themes of ICO and adding some of the darkly devious 2D side-scrolling nature of Limbo, Lost in Shadow is a visually distinctive Wii side scroller. If the game could have actually lived up to its desired pedigree, it would have been stunning.
  • Pros: Some great visual effects, Mostly solid platforming gameplay, Dark atmosphere and nice ambience
  • Cons: Doesn't do nearly enough with its concepts, Gameplay is very standard, Grimy haze gets distracting

  • Conclusion: Lost in Shadow is the sort of game that should be celebrated for having an innovative and interesting hook. Unfortunately, a good mechanic does not equate good game design and the experience suffers as a result.

  • Excerpt: There’s no questioning that since its conception, Ratchet & Clank has been the best platformer around. The Lombax and his robotic pal have been in zany adventures all over the universe, and on several platforms.
