Description: Shadow Uprising is a single-player, post-apocalyptic stealth game, designed exclusively for virtual reality systems. You play a cybernetically enhanced ninja whose goal is to overthrow the oppressive AI overlord. Along your journey, you’ll discover long-forgotten secrets, recover ancient artefacts and help save what remains of humanity.
Review: Shadow Uprising is a game set in a post-apocalyptic world (that looks cell-shaded) in which shadows and stealth are the key to winning. Set over 9 levels, each one filled with robot ninjas, the goal on each of them is simple…to get to the end of the level without dying. Of course, that is far easier said than done because if they spot you, they will start attacking you. You can try and do the levels without killing anyone, or you can make it a little easier on yourself and kill just a few. It took me a good few hours to finish the game and while I got this in a sale for just £1.54 I can easily see this would be worth the full asking price. This is a little gem that I have to be honest and say I had not heard of before this review.
