The Shadow

Bally/Williams, 1994

"No One Can Resist the Power of The Shadow"



Member of my collection: 2005



The Shadow is an excellent flowing game with unique play mechanics that sets it apart from the rest. Unfortunately, it suffers from a rather "poor" license as the motion picture it is based on didn't rattle any cages. This gives the game a huge disadvantage right from the beginning. However, underneath this below-average theme is a game wielding an awesome mini-playfield, magnet hold / brick wall lock, user adjustable diverters, numerous difficult modes, awesome multi-balls and fantastic final wizard-mode. Lately, The Shadow has been gaining in popularity as collectors and players alike finally realize its excellent design. "The Shadow knows!"
