Shad'O reviews and comments

Unfortunately, I can't play Shad 'O on my Main Calculator because it needs Quicktime, although it's not listed below the Minimum Requirements. But Since Quicktime has been strongly discouraged from having on the Computer (Security Holes) for over a year, you can no longer buy this Game. Just Check out the Discussion forums for this Game. 0/5

Shad 'O is a classic Tower Defense Game with an extraordinary and imaginative Design. You play William a little Boy who has to fight back his Memories. In doing so, he must fight shadow beings in his long Nightmare. PRO + Alternatives "good" End, you get after The Hardcore Mode. + The Towers are very sweetly designed. + Creative Leveloptik, short but good Story, beautiful optical voice impression. + The Special Level with its two other Game Modes is a good Idea. CONTRA-Needs Quicktime! (And then there are often installation Problems)-Tower and Spell Upgrades Cannot be undone. So you have to think very carefully about what you are uprising, as nothing can be redistributed. NEW and Me it seems as if there are some Balance Issues. I have a lot of Tower Defense experience, but some Levels seem far too easy, others extremely heavy. O "Only" 15 Level + 5 Special Level + 3 Boss Level. FAZIT I played through the Game in 10 Hours, including the Hardcore Mode. Shad 'O has no real replayed value for me, but for those who like Tower Defense, the Game is a nice Game in the Collection due to its exceptional Look.

Unfortunately, this Game does not run flawlessly on every Computer and the Support has long since been discontinued. Quicktime is needed, although it is not listed under Minimum Requirements. This Info is hidden under Recommendations. Many Players also have Problems with Quicktime. These Players are advised To uninstall Quicktime (necessary for I-Tunes) and use QT-Lite: http://steamcommunity.com/app/215770/discussions/0/882959061772498316/I only had one Crash in the Demo and got the Game gifted. But in the Full Version, the Game always smoked off in the second Mission, with no reasonable Error Message. Neither a Quicktime Update nor a Reinstallation of the Game helped. The Game also ignores the V-Sync setting of my old ATI Radeon HD 5800, but even a V-Sync With The Help of Dxtory does not affect the crash Problem My Tip If you want to take the risk of throwing your Money out to the Window, then necessarily first the Demo Try and play through. Only by surviving the second Mission from the Mission Overview without Crashing can one hope that you will not have any Crashes otherwise. Conclusion A much-good Game in which the Developers did not get to grips with the Problems and were also too lazy to deliver a reasonable work-a-round.
