Shadwen Review

It s got lots of clever little ideas, and attempts a slightly different angle on the traditional stealth game structure.

But in practice none of those ideas work as well as they deserve to, and the entire experience ends up less than the sum of its parts.

It s developed by Frozenbyte, creators of the exceptionally lovely Trine series.

You play the titular Shadwen, an assassin on a journey through a shadowy fantasy land to kill a king.

You must avoid the lines of sight of guards, sticking to the shadows, ducking behind objects, distracting them and using height to your advantage.

If you re worried that the result would be a tedious, overlong escort mission, fear not.
