In a few breaths the level is over.

I dart across some spikes, slash down through a breakable girder, and impale an unwary goon at the bottom of my fall. Then it's a few short leaps over collapsing platforms, a quick tap-tap-tap wall run, and I'm through the door and onto the next section.

Shadow Blade is a blisteringly fast action-platformer deliberately sliced up into speed-run sharpened sections, each tailored to inject a quick blast of gory, breathless excitement into your boring day.

Brilliant touch controls, a gorgeous look, and a difficulty curve that slices perfectly through the whole game combine to make the first must-have iOS platformer of 2014.
