Shadow Complex


Shadow Complex is a fun, yet involving game. The action is well paced, there’s plenty of differing challenges, and the story will keep you hooked whether you’re a card fan or not. Epic has taken a break from Gears and taken on a long forgotten genre,...

Shadow Complex


+ Lovely-looking old-school style 2D action-platforming., + Complex map-filling is a carrot on a stick for completists.
