Independent developer, Sim Chia Tek, released an update to Silvester Adventure, a puzzle platform game playable on the iPhone and the iPod Touch. In the game you play both as the main character Silvester and his shadow. You must guide Silvester in his quest while also protecting his shadow by keeping him in the safe shadow range. We think Silvester Adventure offers an interesting twist beyond the standard platform game. For the update Sim Chia Tek added GameCenter integration and English, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese support. Silverster Adventure comes a in lite and paid version for $1.99
Here’s the description from Sim Chia Tek:
To players not familiar with the title, ‘Silvester Adventure’ is a brilliant hybrid and wonderful mix of platform- and puzzle-gaming, in which you control not only your main character, but more importantly, the shadow of your character! In this highly addicting and mind-blowing puzzler, you must solve and overcome a number of difficult puzzles and obstacles by clever shadow manipulation. The game becomes even harder and more challenging as you must – at all times – make sure that your shadow doesn’t leave its “Shadow Range” (safe-zone of the shadow), otherwise you are doomed to failure, and will perish!
As you successfully progress throughout your adventure, you will achieve shadow skills that can aid you on your quest. Among the skills you can obtain are Shadow Moving, Shadow Minifying and Shadow Magnifying. Some puzzles can only be solved by enlarging, shrinking, or even moving your shadow to an entirely different position on the screen, and without these shadow skills you will get stuck! Additionally, the game has a number of power-ups you can use, including the ability to expand the shadow-range (also known as the Range Extender).
With 31 highly challenging levels, 4 different and unique worlds, 3 shadow skills to obtain, and full gyroscope- and Retina-support (where available) this game is adventure gaming at its best!
