Shadow Blade is a fast-paced ninja platforming game for iOS, Android and Ouya, from developer Dead Mage. It features intuitive touch controls and an array of weapons and challenging levels. There is also a PC version of this game called Shadow Blade: Reload that is enhanced for PC and PlayStation 4 gamers, with a level editor and more levels.
The game consists of bite-sized levels and rewards the player based on three factors: the total time to traverse the level from start to the end, the number of orbs collected across the level and the number of hidden objects found.
The main challenges revolve around precision platforming, combat and stealth play.
Kuro is a young man on his quest to become the Shadow Blade. He must seek the teachings of the last remaining ninja master. You will guide him through challenging levels, around countless traps, sneaking past enemies or right over their dead bodies. You have to be fast, be stealthy, be aware of your environment. You have to be a ninja.
Shadow Blade's reception has been almost universally positive, with the lowest score currently being 70 out of 100 on Metacritic. As of this writing, Shadow Blade holds an aggregate score of 81 (again, out of 100.) Shadow Blade also made AppStore's Editor's Choice in the week of its release.
VideoGamer gives Shadow Blade 9 out of 10, saying:
Easily one of the better mobile games in recent memory, Shadowblade is a shining beacon and a stinging lesson to other developers. This is the bar. Now you try and raise it.
