  • Summary: [WiiWare] Welcome to ShadowPlay. Let your imagination run wild when light meets everyday objects to create fascinating shadows. Play and experiment, make a monster out of a pineapple, a dolphin out of a banana - the only limit is your imagination. ShadowPlay challenges players by transforming shadows into more than 100 exciting, unique puzzles. As more challenging puzzles are unlocked, players will have to find more creative ways to solve problems. You will never look at a slice of pizza the same way again! Winning a round will allow players to advance to the next level as well as score another item to use in the Free Play Mode, where you can unleash your imagination and create your own shadow art. Family and friends can also jump in to help tackle a puzzle at any time using Local Co-op Mode. ShadowPlay will provide tons of brain-racking fun for players of all ages. How do you ShadowPlay?

    ShadowPlay takes a fun and favored pastime from your childhood and brings it back to life as a unique and interesting puzzle design.
  2. The value of ShadowPlay boils down to its controls and concept. Manipulating objects in 3D space feels perfect here.
  3. ShadowPlay is a nice and relaxing change of pace from your typical puzzler and a game worth spending some time with. It may lack some of the replay value of the genre’s more immediate fare, but there’s enough here to keep both your brain and imagination working for a while.
  4. The game contains 100 puzzles with different themes and objects. It'll keep you busy for a while, especially if you're enjoying it.

    This game is way harder and more fun than it looks in the trailers. I find it awesome but just a little frustrating. I used it with the nunchuck and then with the WiiMote and both work good. I've played it for six hours and am only half way. This is a good game for the money. I haven't tried coop yet but when my brother gets home i'm going to kick his a**. I'd say go for it unless you are a Wii noob then it might be too hard for your lame a**. Expand
