Shadowmatic is an imagination-stirring puzzle where you rotate abstract objects in a spotlight to find recognizable silhouettes in projected shadows, relevant to the surrounding environment.

The game combines stunning visuals with relaxing and captivating gameplay.

On your journey to discover the right solution you will stumble upon many unexpected and infinitely varied silhouettes.

The game features 12 rooms, each flavored with unique concept, atmosphere, and music.

Amazing Game

This game is a creative masterpiece! The graphics and the mechanics and everything in this game shines. The clues, the hints, the ones with 2 pieces. It's a fun, interesting concept that is executed in a nearly flawless manner. The hints are reasonable, even if they do have micro transactions, and I adore the different themes and levels. However what makes this one of the best games in the App Store is the small, little touches. For example, you can move the stage slightly by tilting the iPhone. It's not really game mechanic, but it's a really neat touch. It's just so polished!

The basketball player level is terrible

In the beginning everything is fine and interesting, until the two parts combination and three parts combination appeared. Please, people play games to have fun, not to suffer, I don't need another Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy thank you

I normally just spend 1 min on 1 puzzle, however I spend 7 min to get the basketball player puzzle in the right place when I already knew the result image. Nop I didn't feel happy at all when I finished it I only felt extremely furious and frustrated and fatigued and started to hate life
