Brian Rowe says: "How are you supposed to know that a ladder has no bottom end, or that a passage will suddenly collapse upon your skull? You do it, say hello to the reaper, and try again until you get it right. "

Shadowgate review

Reviewed June 28, 2002

ratking says: "The true point and click adventure. Shadowgate is a game inwhich you go around and collect items that you will have to use in a different place. There is no button smashing and you can take as long as you need to solve the puzzles. This NES version was a succesful game but went by unnoticed by others. However the people that did come across it, and wanted the true thinking game were pleasently surprised. Shadowgate had alot to offer for that Nintendo system. "
