Shadwen begins with promise, but has neither the depth nor the variety needed to fulfill...

Trailers for Shadwen had this game pegged as a dastardly murder simulator, where enemy knights would fall due to the clever machinations you had set up, like some kind of sadistic Rube Goldberg machine. Well, there's a little more to it than that, and...

Strangely compelling in spite of its shortcomings, Shadwen is an unusual stealth game with a head full of ideas that never quite get the support they need to bear fruit. Worth a...

Shadwen is een indie game waarin het gaat om niet gezien worden.De makers proberen terug te gaan naar de bron van stealth-games. Met bepaalde gadgets en behendigheid moet je langs bewakers zien te glippen maar dan met een unieke Frozenbyte twist eraan....

International Review By giga.de on 50

Die Idee, Stealth-Elemente mit einer Zeitstopp-Funktion zu verbinden, hat mir in der Theorie wirklich gut gefallen. Und nachdem ich mich nach mehreren Stunden endlich in das Spielprinzip eingewöhnt sowie mir eine funktionierende Taktik zurechtgelegt...
