Shadows Remain is an augmented reality thriller from the creators of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Follow one mother’s desperate journey as she attempts to rescue her only son from a dark and malevolent force in this twisted, story-driven adventure which is sure to leave the heart racing.


Boxes fill the hallway. A child’s toys lay scattered across the floor. Chinese takeout litters an otherwise empty benchtop. After an exhausting day of moving, journalist Emma Winters is awoken as the sound of a cell phone echoes throughout her new home. But something is not right.

Who turned on the TV? Is that… music? And what is that god-awful static? Most importantly, where is Alex? As Emma reaches for the television, she has no idea her life is about to change forever… and only you can piece together the story to uncover what happens next.

Good but


This game is cool and all but, when it comes to the part where she is looking for her son after the call cuts out, I can’t seem to do anything :/ I honestly loved the start of it, and how the call ended added a whole lot of suspense and left a creepy atmosphere which had me considering whether or not to check the doors or the tv, I love that, but the fact I can’t do anything there anyways, I am left in suspense.

Great concept

fino zin

Prob because my room wasn’t bright enough but the virtual room would run off. Also I couldn’t make it past the voice actress’ smug attitude in the game. Would of been better if she had a more serious tone to match the “suspense” the game was trying to pull off. Also that supernatural voice wasn’t convincing either. As I said great concept...just if it would of been a bit more serious it would of hit the mark. Of course IMO.

Cool game!


Cool game. Graphics were great. Interesting storyline. AR experience is fun. I only have 2 criticisms: 1) at times, it’s difficult to move around; and, 2) at times, the voice of the “spirit” is difficult to understand what it’s saying. But, I enjoyed playing Chapter 1 and am looking forward to release of Chapter 2! I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys first person mystery puzzle games!
