    Cyber Shadow is more then just your run of the mill indie-pixel core shovelware game.

    It’s filled with excellent level design, a ton of enemy variety, over a dozen bosses, 7 different powers and has secrets hidden everywhere. It takes inspiration from old Ninja Gaiden and Megaman ZX and took what was amazing about those games and made them feel smooth, modern and amazing. It’s definitely

    Mekaskull is an amazinf dev and this game shows that.

    Cyber Shadow is a great game with an awesome soundtrack. It offers much in the variation of levels, character abilities, and bosses. Do keep in mind that this game can be very hard at times-but there is great reward in finally reaching that checkpoint or moving onto the next level. The story itself is relatively basic and there is some replayability in completing trophies or reachingCyber Shadow is a great game with an awesome soundtrack.

I would recommend this game for anyone with an interest in classic platforming games! Expand

    Cyber Shadow is a solid retro throwback with a few things that drag it down. The feeling of becoming more powerful and being able to take down huge enemy threats with your wits and skills is very rewarding, and the levels when you can use your abilities more freely to overcome challenges are quite fun. It's the trial-and-error areas littered with cheap deaths, demanding exact precision over long and frustrating stretches, that hamper the experience. Still, if you're looking for an old-school-styled ninja game that will test your skills (and sometimes your patience), Cyber Shadow is a worthy contender.

    Cyber Shadow is a great modern take on the retro games that inspired it. Jumping and slashing your way through each of its areas is a lot of fun, and its checkpoint system smartly eliminates potential frustration and repetition. Even though some aspects could be better, Cyber Shadow is still a very enjoyable adventure and a strong debut for Mechanical Head Games.
