Explore Forgotten Ruins In New Isometric Puzzler Shadowscrapers
A terrific new isometric logic puzzler about using negative space to reshape a long forgotten world called Shadowscrapers has arrived on mobile devices. This free level shifting puzzler comes from indie developer Sky Pulse which is comprised of game development students at the University of Utah who ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to help bring it to light(no pun intended). As an intrepid triangular explorer it’s up to players to journey through minimalistic cathedrals filled with clever three dimensional puzzles that require keen spatial awareness and logical deduction to conquer. In each level players are tasked with reaching a far off door by standing on switches and redirecting light so they can create new platforms out of surprisingly sturdy shadows that will get them to their goal.
While this is initially a simple proposition things quickly become increasingly more complex as the amount of simultaneous shadow beams involved begins to grow. Strong art design lends character to Shadowscrapers’ underlying architectural mechanics as striking individual elements work together towards a cohesive whole with a catchy meditative soundtrack accompanying proceedings. Fans of games like Monument Valley will have a blast with this thought provoking new logic puzzler.
Shadowscrapers is free to download on Android and iOS.
