Shadow of the Beast review

Reviewed February 06, 2010

Zigfried says: "When I borrowed a Turbo Duo back in 1993, I cycled through over a dozen games in the span of two days. While most of those 48 hours became a blur, a few moments stood out; Shadow of the Beast's conceptually simple title screen was one. Grass gorgeously scrolls underneath the beast's feet as clouds pass overhead, and the quiet soundtrack initially a simple series of bells gradually becomes an epic showcase of strong percussion, evocative wind pipes, and resounding chimes. It's simple but inspired."
