It could be appropriate considering you play a ninja of sorts in Running Shadow, Game Insight’s mobile runner/RPG hybrid, but it didn’t make too much noise while launching today on Android.
Imagine a runner combined with the aesthetic of Assassin’s Creed and you’ve got the idea behind Running Shadow. Its designed to be easy for anyone to pick up and play thanks to simple game mecahnics, yet have enough depth of story and customization to satisfy gamers looking for an experience that’s a little meatier. The cast includes more than 20 characters, and levels are set in both indoor and outdoor locations.
Clearly, Game Insight put a lot of effort into the art style and animation, and it’s easy to see at first glance that it stands above your typical runner in those departments. It also has a very nifty website with full page videos that drive home the Assassin’s Creed/Prince of Persia feel even more.
The mystery behind the Brotherhood of Shadows can finally begin to be unraveled on Android phones and tablets, as Running Shadow is finally available as a free download in the U.S. via Google Play. Check out the trailer below for more.
