Running Shadow First Look

Developer: Like Games | Publisher: Game Insight
Players: 1 Player Game | Genre: RPG

Release Date: April 2014

Running Shadow, a game of a genre that I’ve never really cared for all that much, caught my eye a bit when I sat down with it at Game Insight, today at E3. Visually compared to other mobile games of the runner genre, Running Shadow grabbed my attention. On top of that, it brings a slight RPG aspect to the game as well--which is a definite ‘one-up’ to me.

In Running Shadow, you’re take the role of a thief assassin that upon chance come in possession of a magical gauntlet known as the Gauntlet of the Celestial Guardian. This formerly belonged to the adepts of a dark and ancient cult. This gauntlet grants the user some interesting, unique abilities that will help you progress through the game, in addition to some amazing acrobatics that you will unlock to overcome obstacles.

Additionally, Running Shadow features several different outfits for the main hero, as well as a diverse set of locations that the story takes place in--each just as beautifully designed as the last. Though I didn’t spend much time with my hands on this title, I definitely look forward to getting to take a better look at this game when I have the time to download and sit down with it for a good amount of time.
