Lost in Shadow Wii

Hudson Soft

Feb 26, 2011 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

The Wii aims to extend their exclusive platformer streak they started with such 2010 games as Donkey Kong Country, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, and Super Mario Galaxy 2, with the inventive Lost in Shadow. The visually and tonally striking Hudson Soft release grafts the austere settings of Ico and Limbo onto the imaginative gameplay mechanics from Echochrome. This is a dyed-in-the-wool platformer with a clever twist. Instead of interacting with each corporeal level of the tower your nameless hero is ascending, you’ll find yourself jumping amongst the shadows cast by these objects. Unfortunately, the Wii’s infamous third party curse creeps into view when one considers the minimalism of Shadow‘s 60-plus stages. Its puzzle elements are what keep this title stimulating. Some stages (entitled “Shadow Corridors”) find players revolving the whole world, thus shifting the level’s shadows. Though Lost in Shadow isn’t a graphical powerhouse, there are moments that will make you stop and marinate in the eerie mood. Repetitive fetch quests and wild swings in puzzle complexity don’t warrant the $39.99 retail price tag though. This has WiiWare written all over it. (www.hudsonent.com/lostinshadow)
