Threes!
A little game...

Shadowmatic

Find images in shadows.

Shadowmatic
Spin To Create A Shadow

For those who like new puzzle ideas, and shadow puppets.

Shadowmatic is one of the best you can grab so far this year. I am in love with the pragmatic visuals, the exclusive environments, ambient tunes, and simple controls. The progress bar works well in telling me if I’m close to solving it, though at times it just feels like I’m randomly spinning it around to light up the dots.

Why we love it

If you're looking for a game that is special and relaxing, Shadowmatic is for you. The shadows are sharp and contrast well with the rest of the surroundings, and it’s incredibly fun to watch the shadows morph into something new as you move the figures around. The animations are super smooth and the soundtrack is a joy to listen to, best experienced with a good pair of headphones.
