Our entire team of Important Videogame Experts agreed that Shadow Bug very strongly reminded of them another game, but none of us could remember what it is was. Which makes me feel a weird, nagging guilt that I’m being unfair to some mystery game lost to memory, or that only exists in a collective dream. One of you sweethearts can tell me what is it below, I’m sure. So: let’s include Shadow Bug regardless, as it’s a pretty good time in what I can only presume is its own right.
It’s a ninja-y platformer starring a rotund insect assassin, in which you cannot directly jump, but if you click on an enemy to attack them, you will immediately teleport to them. This includes passing straight through walls, but, via some confusing feat of internal logic, if there are spikes en route you’ll get stuck on ’em and die. So it’s about figuring out a route across a hazard-filled or otherwise locked-down level using this indirect hopping method.
It feels really, really nice to control, although in the sections I’ve played thus far it’s perhaps over-easy, having a slight phone game click-to-make-it-happen-for-you vibe. But it does get into controlling your arc of descent to land in the right place or timing attack-o-teleports to make your way up a chasm with a row of spikes at the bottom. Levels are short, gratification is instant and it’s quite pretty too. Man, I’m sure I’ve played something a lot like it before, though.
