This game requires you to look at things a little differently.
Shadowmatic, as the title indicates, lets players head back to the nursery and explore the many facets of shadow puppets.
Remember being young and convinced that the shadow of the tree outside was a monster? It’s the same idea, though far less scary.
Players are presented with one or more (pretty wonky-looking) objects at the start of each round.
You are asked to adjust their angle to cast the shadow of a familiar shape on the wall. In the tutorial, for example, you have to spin a piece of wood to cast the shadow of a rabbit.
The app is a little pricey at US$3, which may be steep for a lot of folks just looking for a quick way to pass the time.
But if you like indie mobile games and are willing to shell out a little more to support them, give this one a try. US$2.99, for iOS devices. (WP-BLOOM)
