Shadomania is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Artistic and Very Different Game!!! I read some reviews here and wanted to gamers know that it is a very cool game. I pretty much breezed through the third level and still have some more to complete. I had to use the "hint" on one of the paintings but more than one click. If you are creative and have an artistic eye, this is an awesome game. The finished art work is beautiful. I hope I can find another like it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give it a chance if you like a challenge This is probably one of the best puzzle games that have come out in a long, long time. If you do not have the patience to figure something out, then this game is not for you - and you are not the audience the game producers are going for. This game is a challenge - the rules are not written out - in English or any other language...that is part of the puzzle. It would be too easy if they wrote the rules out and handed it to you... Give it the full 30 minute trial - IF you are truly a puzzle lover....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different Puzzler I have played the free trial almost completely, and I enjoy this game a lot. It is beautiful, and different than any game I have played. It is a puzzle game in which you try to recreate Japanese-style paintings and prints using silhouettes which you rotate into the correct position. The controls are easy, and there is a hint system, although the game really wants you to figure out the puzzles yourself (which I like). The game may take some getting used to, but don't give up, at least not on the trial. One problem I had was that many of the silhouettes do not look like anything. Also, the rating system was too strident, and I would have like to be able to turn it off. You do not need a perfect score to advance, they are just there for an extra challenge. Overall, a fun and challenging game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definite Buy!!! I'm not sure people have given this game a fair trial. I love games that present new ideas and challenges. Some have stated that there is no time limit, but in a way there is. To get three stars on a level you must do it not only with few moves, but also quickly. It's fun to redo a level to see if you can meet these requirements. And many clues are available if one does get stuck. I also found that the music and sound effects fit the mood perfectly. It's a definite buy for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Cool! Black silhouettes that you arrange into Japanese scenes, when you arrange them correctly they come through into bright color. Not really a game more like a strategic think!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Concept Different, interesting and challenging game. I usually play HOS and adventure games, but since I love jigsaws, I figured I'd try this game out. I didn't get to the more challenging levels yet so I can't comment on them, but the beginner levels were fun. The object of the game is to take parts of shadow pieces and form them into a picture. They are Japanese scenes and are accompanied by beautiful, soothing music. The graphics are gorgeous. A good game for stressed fishies!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing and challenging I really liked this game! I had no problems understanding how it works or solving the puzzles. It was nice with a new type of challenge. Some puzzles were harder than others but you can still manage to solve them with only a couple of hints on each puzzle. For every puzzle you solve you get a certain amount of stars wich turns into hints, if you are not happy with the amount of stars you gained you can replay every puzzle, knowing what the solution is and therefore be able to solve it quicker and earn more stars. I do think the game runs to quickly though.. I only played the one hour trial and was already on the hard level. (Every level has 36 different puzzles.) The music and graphics were really nice and relaxing, and I enjoyed them a lot. To sum this up, I really enjoyed this game for being original and challenging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you love puzzles, but way too short! I think this is one of those games that isn't fun for everyone. It's mostly for people who love puzzles and want to be challenged. I was able to complete all 53 puzzles in the demo with 7 minutes to spare, so it took me roughly one minute per puzzle. It was a really fun game, but there's no need to buy it since most people were able to get through the majority of the game during the demo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A delightful, pretty little puzzler What a pretty little surprise! This game is a charmer. I almost gave it a pass because it seemed like it might be boring but I was wrong. The premise is simple, turn shapes around until they all come together to make a silhouette of specific image. Once you've got it right, the picture comes up in full color. It reminds me just a little of my favorite puzzle in Drawn 3 - painting in the Easter egg. It sounds almost too easy to be challenging but the devs found a very nice balance. There are enough visual clues that each puzzle rewards you with an aha! moment as it all comes together. Before that happens, there's a zen-like quality to moving shadows that is enhanced by a light traditional soundtrack. This game is a dreamy little escape with enough challenge to keep it interesting. Because there is no story and a repeated mechanic, it will appeal to some but not others. I highly recommend giving it it try rather than overlooking it.
