Shadowplay: Whispers of the Past is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok for a rainy afternoon Found the game and mini games to be different and entertaining. Level just right to enjoy without tearing my retreating hair out. Story was the typical somebody kidnapped by a something and you must save them. I recommend as a fun game to lay back and enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from there is killing in the game but no more then what you see on tv these days. so far I like the game, lots of action. the puzzle are somewhat easy but not all of them. a lot to do with this game, wondering where the story will take you next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from shadowplay Ok, this is another mother losing and looking for her daughter that was taken by a monster of some sort. Normally I quit and uninstall but not this time. This game is different because it does not give me the feeling to rush through and get over with it. I like it and am going to buy it because it is different and I am not feeling frustrated. Okay, it is a bit easy but I can change the setting to hard if I want to. Today it is half off so I think it is worth it. I wish they made more "dad" games, and not "mom" games. I am a dad myself. So, even though it does not knock it out of the park, I think this game ranks a solid double.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DON'T MIND ME, I'M JUST TAKING THIS THIEF TO THE VETS OFFICE! Alicia Cole is a museum curator who finds herself the victim of a botched robbery, while working late. Her daughter Maya, was in the wrong place at the wrong time, when the thief accidentally drops the Skull of Darkness. The hard shell casing cracks, exposing the dangerous artifact, and Maya is swept away through it's evil portal, to a world beyond light itself, where only the shadows dare come out to play! Equipped with only a Mystical Lens, Alicia will have to find a way to thwart the thieves, and use the Skull of Darkness to enter a world where K'tal delved further than anyone ever dared, in his relentless pursuit of ultimate power. In the Collector's Edition version, there are 36 Collectible icons, and they are fantastically blended into each scene, unlike some games where you can't help but see them. There are also 17 Morphing Objects within each HOP. The Hidden Object Scenes are by far the most creative and entertaining scenes I've ever seen! Although the concepts are the same, the scenes are not. My favorite's were finding Silhouetted Shapes on three different fossil walls in the museum during an interactive tour, and finding Listed items cleverly blended on three different movie posters. In the CE version, each HOP has a Morphing Object available. The Mini Games are unusual, and very creative for the most part. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Move the Knights in an L formation to their color coded spots. 2) Create a platform for the yellow hexagon to exit, by crossing over the exact number of symbols as indicated on the clue. 3) Open the safe using the clue you find. 4) Use the mystical lens to destroy the evil shadows, align the circles over the target and click when the two circles overlap. 5) Lead the glowing orb from point A to B by clicking on points of the path until they create a path. 6) Recreate the picture by swapping tiles using the frame as a clue. 7) Steer the car by clicking on the correct moving directional arrow when it aligns with the arrow in the box. 8) Choose the correct item related to the riddle. 9) Move parts of the picture to match the painting. 10) Select the correct images according to the clue. 11) Move the tiles to the opposite sides of the board, tiles can jump one another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SKULL OF DARKNESS - K'TAL REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS You play Research Consultant, Alicia Cole, to rescue your daughter, Maya. This really is a good game. There is plenty to do, and I loved the HOPs and mini-games. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Enthusiast, Archeologist, Conservator, Lecturer and Curator modes; * Interactive map; * Use of magical lens. The graphics are gorgeous - colourful and crystal clear. It was fun roaming around each scene, not knowing what to expect next. Sound is good and the music is mainly orchestral. The hidden object games are a blast. It also had my favourite one with the sliders at the top and side and you have to blend the pictures together. Each HOP has a morphing object to find as well - and we all know that these can be a challenge to find. I enjoyed all of the mini-games. The two maze mini-games I liked the best as these had the most challenge. None are too hard or frustrating. You will have the use of the magical lens which is on the bottom left of your screen. It will glow when you need to use it. Two circles pop up and you need to combine the two circles to fire. You just need a little patience to wait until they close together before you fire. I found I didn't need to use the interactive map at all as you are only going to a couple of scenes at a time before you move on. So, do you get the CE or SE? In the bonus game you play Maya to free the mark of the Shadow Realm, which takes another 1 hour or so. There are 11 Achievements (some with 3 circles), 36 collectible items, Treasure Hunt, ultimate HOP and puzzles. All up the game and bonus took me about 4 hours. Overall, an exciting game to play, however I wouldn't call it an intense thriller - more of an adventure. Its not scary or intensively plays with the mind (work does that!). Definitely comes recommended. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not all it purports to be. I'm not going to bother with a shake down of the plot or anything else. Other reviewers have done that to good effect. All I want to say is that, if these devs want to make a game for adults, this is still way too weak an example. DON'T buy it on the warning basis. You'll be massively disappointed. It's about as intense as a supressed sneeze. Good enough to play on other merits, but not nearly worth a warning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ho hum, here we go again! First I’ll give you the good news —the graphics, music, background and effects sounds, and the voice-over narratives are all well done. Although the text of the narratives is more than a little hokey and contrived. The HO sequences, such as there were in the demo, were quite a departure from the normal ‘spot it, grab it’ variety. The mini-games should be sufficiently challenging for you aficionados, of which I am not one. Now for the rest of the stuff, well, once again you’re faced by an evil entity and its minions; once again your daughter’s been kidnapped by evil entity and et cetera; once again you’ve got a magic amulet with which to fight the minions. Oh, and let’s not forget the bag with the broken zipper —excuse me while I yawn. Frankly, I am at a loss to understand the raves this game garnered from some of the other reviewers. When you come right down to it, this game is nothing but more of the same old stuff we have seen and played countless times. It doesn’t matter how nicely you dress up a trite, tired story line with dazzling graphics; when all’s said and done, nothing’s changed. My recommendation is that you save your download limit, and your money, and give this one a miss. As always, though, my caveat is that, if you must, play the d

Rated 2 out of 5 by from terrible sequel the first Shadowplay was awesome and scary as heck this sequel just seems to want to copy off the first games breakthrough...i hate to say it but don't waste your money and get the original much more of an inclusive game think of "Godfather 3" that's what this game is to this series

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I retract my review on the CE page. This review is on the completed game. SUMMARY Everything goes downhill after the demo…and it’s a short game. Not Madhead’s best work, and I’m thankful I didn’t pay the regular Game Club price. THE AWESOME The Demo—Best part of the game. The rest feels unfinished with lots of filler and no thriller. THE GOOD The Production—Fell down after the demo, IMO, with both graphics and animation. The conversations were at the level of Scooby Doo, and the voiceovers were melodramatic. Stuff like, “It’s over K’tal!” in the “You won’t get away with this” mode. Ugh. THE MEDIOCRE HO Scenes—Again, after the demo, these devolved into mostly interactive lists and backstory “find two of each in each scene.” The lovely multi-layered, almost puzzle-like presentations disappeared. THE BAD The Puzzles—Mostly retreads and much too easy. Nothing innovative or challenging. The Storyline—Shallow and poorly stitched together. The pace of the game did not reflect the mortal danger the story implied. THE HORRIBLE Game Length—Extremely short. It took me only 45 minutes to complete subsequent to the hour demo. Exploration—Devolved into running back and forth, completing a laundry list of stupid tasks that included having to fix everything or find missing parts for everything, as well as a plethora of shaped keys. The demo is NOT emblematic of the gameplay. The Click Bait Warning: There was nothing that even temporarily increased my heart rate. It wasn’t frightening, thrilling, or suspenseful. Mostly, it was boring. BEST GAMES BY THIS DEV (better than ✭✭✭✭) • from this series: Nope. Suggest the devs go watch some horror movies before releasing any more “scary” series. • Beyond: Light Advent CE • Cadenza: Music, Betrayal, and Death CE • the Dark Realm series • Dawn of Hope: Skyline Adventure CE • the Maze series • the Nevertales series • Rite of Passage: Child of the Forest CE, Hide and Seek CE, Deck of Fates CE BEST GAMES WITH THIS GENERAL THEME (evil beings from alternate universe) • Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden CE • Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove CE • Surface: The Pantheon CE • Gothic Fiction: Dark Saga CE • the Nightmare Adventures series • the Invasion series • the Nightmare Realm series • Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night CE and Eclipse Mountain CE • Mystery of Mortlake Mansion

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ugh! I got this game with a coupon and it took all the effort I could muster to complete it. Everything is like a badly done cartoon..the mini-games, the cut-scenes. I'm seriously beginning to wonder if Mad Head and BFG have forgotten that well-done cut scenes and game intro help to set the mood and move the story forward. Without that, you are just solving a collection of puzzles of HOGs. It has been a while now since I found any games to actually buy on BFG. A few years ago that was NEVER the case.
