Shadowmatic is a puzzle game, but it’s not any normal puzzle game - it’s quite different from all those puzzle games that are available for smartphones. Shadowmatic gives a really new concept of puzzles; it has taken puzzle games to a whole new standard or one could say introduced a whole new genre to the puzzle games. Shadowmatic is a stirring puzzle game. In the game, we are given a 3D object that is placed in front of a light source and forming a shadow on some wall. Your task is that you have to turn the object in all directions until the shadow of that object makes some recognizable image. In other words, using a 3D object, you have to create a 2D image. Rotating single object and creating a shadow seems easy, to add to the challenge you will be given multiple objects, and their combined shadow will be making an image - this part makes it hard and will surely get you working hard for a long time.
