The wind whistles shrilly through the halls as you step gingerly over the threshold. You’ve just entered Shadowgate, a once shining fortress, now a dark smoldering ruin. Swallow your fear and take up your torch. In your hands lies the fate of your land... freedom and sunlight, or the dark domination of the Warlock Lord. Only you, the last of an ancient line of kings, can hope to stop the evil one from his dread purpose: the raising of the titan Behemoth and the destruction of all you hold dear.

The original Macintosh AND Apple IIgs versions have been restored to their original glory! Come see where the world of first-person fantasy adventures started and experience the classic adventure as it appeared in 1987.

This classic is Fantastic!

I love this game. I never had a chance to play it back in the late 80s when it came out, but I always wanted to. My wish came true now! What a perfect game for the iPad. I have 1 issue / *bug* that needs to be corrected. In IIgs mode, I was able to get the first door and doorSkull to 'stick' onto the screen, they wouldn't go away. Unfortunately this happens to me often. Even when I started a new game that which stuck is still there. I imagine it will be fixed in the update, Didn't see it in classic Mac version, that's the game I am playing the most. Look forward to the update that fixes that IIgs bug and playing more of the Mac classic. Still gets my 5 stars. Into the dungeon!!!

Great game!

I played Shadowgate as a kid on the NES. If you enjoyed playing Shadowgate back in the day, will will love playing it on your mobile device!

Horrible interface and no warnings for torch going out

The developer literally created an app based around the original mouse input. Clearly some better thought should have been taken.

The biggest issue though is that the original game would warn you whenever your torch was about to go out. That doesn’t happen in this version.
