About this game

Content Rating: Everyone


Shadowgate is one of the most well-known and well-loved point-and-click Adventure titles in gaming history. As one of the original titles in the popular MacVenture series in the late 80s and early 90s, Shadowgate quickly endeared players with its fantastic atmospheric soundtrack, perilous locations to explore, countless puzzles to solve, and more ways to gruesomely die than gamers previously thought possible. Shadowgate really came into prominence when it was successfully remade on the 8-bit NES in 1989 and the Gameboy Color in 1999.

Shadowgate is really just Myst in hell, and while it's an undeniable success as a straight-up reproduction of a mid-80s point-and-click adventure, the slavish devotion to its source material is tiresome and frustrating. Nostalgia is nice, but not everything improves with age.

Still, Shadowgate emerges as a great throwback to an era of intensely difficult puzzle gameplay, and it benefits from better storytelling tools and maddening puzzle design, whose entire goal is to stump players until they think about it from another direction.
