Рецензии

“Shad’O is a beautiful, inspiring game that stirred my emotions and once raised the hairs on the back of my nec.”
7/10 – IGN

“Beautiful graphics and an interesting plot elevate Shad’O above its tower defense ilk.”
7/10 – Gamespot

“The concept of the game holds up well and it stands on its own as a tower defense title. Okugi Studios did a very good job with this title.”
8.5/10 – Examiner.com

“A tower defense game whose wonderful art style and melancholy story are as effective as its gameplay.”
4.75/5 – Gamers Haven

Requires you to install quicktime, but doesn't work with current version.
So if you already have quicktime you have to uninstall it and then install QTLite to get this game to run.
If you actually need to have quicktime installed for something else to function (iTunes), QTLite will break that.
Even GFWL games gave me less problems than this game.

IF you can get it to run, it's a decent tower defense game.
But I'd take Pixeljunk Monsters, Kingdom Rush, or even Super Sanctum TD over this,
since you can actually just install those and have them work.

Did not enjoy this game the slightest. Frustrating gameplay that more or less forces you to do some "Tower Juggeling" where you have to sell towers and build in new spots on almost every level. To bad for a game that has a very nice artstyle that i enjoyed.

I bought this game cause I like TD and it looked nice. And I regret it. Story is overall so-so, game is short and pretty unbalanced. Some useless spells and helpers. And making a player to play twice (in nightmare mode 2nd time) to get a good ending? No, thank you. I've had enough. There are definitely better TD games out there.

Tower Defense в пижаме.

Уильям/Вильям/Вильгельм/etc. (9-летний паренёк) и его медведь каким-то образом оказались во сне. Сон-то кошмарный. Теперь нужно как-то выживать и прорываться из этого недружелюбного места. И в этом вам помогут лоскутные башенки, которые с необычайной ловкостью отстреливают монстров, рожденных подсознанием ребенка. Причем для размещения башенок территорию под строительство нужно предварительно осветить (именно так, священник тут не требуется). В плане геймплея - довольно спорный элемент, ибо это просто увеличивает время игры, не давая никаких реальных положительных моментов. Есть схватки с боссами, но они куда как хуже стандартной игровой механики, вдобавок такие битвы смотрятся совсем неуместно.

Поспи! 6,5 из 10 :)

Средненький Tower Defense, где-то на 5.5/10 , но довольно увлекателен, как и любая игра подобного жанра, вплоть до простеньких flash игр)) Сам лично - никому НЕ рекомендую =D

Installs Apple products on your PC without asking....
"Apple Application Support" and "QuickTime"
Which are required to run this game.
Of course, it installed it for me, which I did not want. I do not want crapware on my PC.
And the game gave me QuickTime errors anyways at startup.
So, I have never seen what the game looks like.

I would advise you never to install this unless, of course, you love Apple crap.
You already have iTunes or any other Apple products installed on your "PC".
Then maybe you would not mind.
I, and millions and millions of other people do NOT want Apple craps on our PCs.

The game might be great. but I'll never know.

Pros :
I do not know.

Cons:
Apple auto installs on PC without asking.
Min specs required does not state it required QuickTime.
Rec Specs has an additional that says it does.

Game does not ask if you want to install Apple crapware on your PC.
I was wondering why it took some time to install this game.

I love tower defenses that is why I am so disappointed with this game. It's not a bad game but it lacks some basic features of any good TD, e.g. the ability for the player to change strategy or to get empowered from failure; indeed in this game should you fail a level, you have no choice but to redo it with your current set of upgrades and spells. There is no mean to upgrade unless succeeding levels, no mean to respec... Should you have made unadvised upgrade choices you are stuck with playing again – or abandoning the game – without feeling better equipped neither more ready since the game mechanics lack depth and the right strategy is always straightforward.
Yet the gameplay is generally balanced, monsters are consistent with towers, towers do their jobs... But that's all. At the third (and last) upgrade level it's still just a stronger version of the basic tower; no additional ability, no new mechanics. Towers don't combo so don't expect more than legacy TD – which nowadays means shallow – gameplay, aside from the spells which are the only things that can occasionnaly be triggered in sequence to have a little more useful effect.

On the graphics side there are pros and cons: 3D modeling, animations, fog effect are good, but 2D graphics (used to illustrate the side story) suck, and the overall color choice/association is poor, leaving a dirty brownish atmosphere. The game terribly lacked art direction.
The side story (that serves as a theme, don't expect any meaningful connexion with the gameplay) is a drama about a little boy... again. So uninspired.

The camera does not zoom out enough to allow for all the field to be seen and since there are usually more than one generators and monsters are hidden by the fog, good luck for knowing from which generator came those monsters you just heard spawning... because, no, in this 3D game the sound is not even spatially localised...

Most one-man-made free Flash TD games allow for a better player experience & progression and deeper strategy, thus fun, than this game. There are many much better alternatives in free Flash games, and would you want to pay for a TD on Steam, go for real deals such as Kingdom Rush.

Edit: I played once more after my review, unlocked the last 3 towers, to find there were uninteresting. Bored, I uninstalled the game. At first I wouldn't have said that this game doesn't deserve to be on Steam but now I would; it is a very shallow TD, eventually bad.

Shad’O:
+/+ Unique setting and storytelling style.
+/+ Unique use of FOW (fog of war) with towers allowing vision.
+/+ Solid graphics, music, and sound effects for a TD.
+/+ ‘Special battles’ that unlock rewards.
+/+ Fun boss fights.

+/- Very generic & limited tower options.
+/- Upgrade choices are permanent.
+/- Magic system requires you to actively collect mana.
+/- Towers have health and can be killed (they can also be healed).

-/- Lack of stats for levels limits replay value or the desire to perform well.
-/- Only two difficulty options. Shad’O is not hard enough.
-/- Game can be beat using only 3-4 out of the 10 towers (with the last boss requiring only two towers to beat).
-/- Voice Acting.
-/- Requires you to download QuickTime or QT Lite in order to play.

Verdict: 6.5/10. The style is what stands out most in Shad’O as well as the few boss fights. But it’s a very generic TD game and probably only worth a play through for hardcore TD fans desperate for anything new.

Fun tower defense. Requires replaying some of the scenarios until the mobs' abilities are learned.

Two minor cons are apparent: Quicktime installation is required and the poor English translation of a somewhat mediocre over-arching storyline detracts from the game slightly, however the basic concept of fighting inside one's nightmares is otherwise well executed and lends itself to interesting environments.

There are few games that I find myself unwilling and unable to complete. This is one of them. It has an interesting mechanic of territory control (pushing shadows back with your imaginary tower-friends), and it creates a nice sombre tone with its cut-scene art.

However, it is ultimately a tower defense game that lacks player-friendliness and failed to have an impact on me. Skill points that you allocate are absolutely permanent. If you find yourself unhappy or unable to progress because of your skills, you'll have to restart the game from scratch to repick your skills. Further, winning battles leaves me unsatisfied, and I'm more irritated than distraught when I lose my units, little yellow plushies with no personality. The cut-scene art is nice, but the inexpert voice-acting can be grating if you pay attention to it.

Lastly, installing this game means you have to install Quicktime as well. This is how the game plays its cutscenes. It's pointed out in the requirements (har har as if we read those), but if you have the same hate on Apple I've noticed in some Steam threads, then this is just icing on the "Try something else" cake. I only recommend this game to hardcore tower-defense game enthusiasts who enjoy skill-picking with no backtracking, and who do not listen to cut-scenes.

Tower defense with fog, and bonus challenge maps.
Terrible acting, pretty graphics, you know, we've seen it all before.

I am a fan of Tower Defense, and while Shad'O doesn't necessarily bring much new to the genre, it's a solid and extremely polished offering with a wonderful surreal setting, and great sound design.

The way maps are shrouded in fog, which must be lifted by placing 'companions' (towers) allowing you to see and defend more of the map is an interesting approach, and makes for some pretty intense scenarios, where monsters move in and out of the safety of the fog.

Fans of the genre should definitely check it out.
