Classic platforming meets modern design in a game built and optimised for touch controls.
The Driftlands are a gothic and frightening place at the best of times….And this is not the best of times. The Aurora stone has been stolen from the great Lighthouse by an unknown and shadowy creature. Without its light, the Driftlands will be destroyed.
Enter Oscura our highly unlikely hero. He is the keeper of the lighthouse, and possesses a mysterious eternally glowing hand. Oscura must travel the lands and gather the shards to restore the Aurora stone - before it is too late and darkness befalls on the whole universe.
CLASSIC PLATFORMING MEETS MODERN DESIGN
Inspired by early platformers from the 1990’s, Oscura delivers a stripped down platforming experience through the filter of modern game and art design.
BUILT FOR TOUCH
Built for touch devices from the ground up, Oscura: Second Shadow is optimised and designed around the capabilities and limitations of touch to ensure that the controls are never at fault.
DARK FAIRYTALE WORLD
Dive into the world of the Driftlands, where engineering meets nature and strange creatures stalk. With the Aurora stone shattered, Oscura’s glowing hand and the shards of the stone are the only light sources, creating a stark and beautiful silhouette art style.
HAUNTINGLY STYLIZED LEVELS
Journey through 20 challenging levels, each crafted by hand rather than using tile-sets.
AN UNLIKELY HERO
Slight of frame and without any weaponry or brute force, Oscura must rely on his wits and reflexes to avoid foes and hazards alike. He’s no hero, just doing his job.
CHALLENGES TO KEEP YOU COMING BACK
Completing levels is one thing, collecting all four stars for each level is quite another. Replay levels to perfect your run and beat the goals for time, collecting cogs, shards and getting through without dying.

Doesn't add much to its core mechanic after the first few levels. The slow motion feels like a cop out for poorly designed challenges. Remains mostly beautiful still. But nowhere near limbo, badland or leo's fortune.
Creepy Mario Brothers
Game play is simple, graphics are clean. I was not sure what to expect in terms of the interface. Enjoyable but simple.
Good, but glitchy
Having played the first game that was removed from the App Store, I was excited to see this new one.
I love the art, and gameplay is good, but there are still some glitches, the physics seem a bit odd, and overall it feels like it wasn't completely finished yet. I hope to see updates fixing these issues in the future, because this is a good game.
