Shadow Vamp - A sunny vampire tale by Gamesmold

It's been one year now since Blood Roofs came out, and finally my new game is very close to finished:



Shadow Vamp will feature a unique kind of gameplay, based on amazing 3D realtime shadows powered by the Unity engine.
Get ready for a major sunburn!













Coming very soon to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Stay tuned!

Cheers,
Thomas

From the maker of Blood Roofs... I cant say no to this!

And right now, i can say that THIS IS A BRILLIANT CONCEPT!

Basically you can control where the sun casts the shadow, and you have to move your character only through the shadows. That's the basic gist of the game right? And there are stuff like sunscreen to help out get from point A to B.

From the looks of it, this is another instabuy!

Thank you!
I wanted to create something different this time. And though it was much more work creating the levels this time, I still had a lot of fun making this game.

Yes, that's the concept. Actually, you rotate the entire playing field (that's why you can see the far backgrounds moving) to get the shadows in the right place.
I found it really amazing what kind of tricky combinations you can do with this!

Thanks for the great feedback!

Ah.. That makes a lot more sense than controlling the sun. Doh!
