Description: Have you ever wanted to compete in an entirely illegal underground sports game operation between three competing companies for the great honour of your tech!? Enter the Shadow Circuit. Doskoi, Hachimau, and Ikaros63 have shareholders in this year’s tournament — and you are their representative contender. Face off against the amalgamation of the millenia’s newest tech, and prove once and for all which company is superior. Utilizing your gravity whips and anti-G suit, compete for victory in a battle of attrition and points in this high-octane sport.
Review: I kind of see what the developers of Shadow Circuit were going for here, but it looks like they gave up before it could even be finished. What you have is a very basic testbed of a game with no tutorial or anything representing polish. Its kind of a brick breaker but with a whip and sometimes it seems to be fun, then others the “whip” thing doesn’t seem to work at all! Even if this was a freebie I would have suggested waiting for some updated (that are never going to happen) but at £3.99 it is best avoided forever.
