* A lot of detail
* Easy game control
* Random levels
* Different charactors

End of Ads, let's talk about this game.

Well, this is a story between the Load of Shadow and You-Know-Who.

The Lord of Shadow was sent to watch family's land of fortune as soon as he graduated from Monster School few months ago ...

This is not an easy job as he thought because of the existence of You-Know-Who.

Below is the daily conversation between the Load of Shadow and his minions from day one:

"My Lord!
The annoying You-Know-Who come again!"

"Again? You must be kidding me! You go following the You-Know-Who and keep eyes on my fortune.
Where is my spell book? I need to go over it again."

10 characters in ShadowRunner 1.1.0

We have 10 characters in ShadowRunner 1.1.0. I know it is not very much. Maybe I should put a "only" in this sentence.

One used to say to me, every mobile game has dozens, even hundreds of characters to collect ...

Yes, maybe we will lose in quantity, BUT we are confident in the quality as we tried to make each one equally adorable.

See for yourselves.
