"Of Light & Shadow" is an award winning sidescroll puzzle-platformer for PC/Mac with a slight twist; the game combines two areas in each level, light and shadow, as well as two protagonists in one playable character, Mr. Light and Dr. Shadow. While either can only survive in light or shadow areas respectively, the player has to constantly switch between them and make the right decision about whose abilities to utilise. The game starts off with two introductory levels for each protagonist. While Mr. Light should feel like your typical platformer character, Dr. Shadow is more of a cognitive challenge with puzzles and, since being an unhurried academic, timing. After these separate tutorials, for the rest of the game the player can switch between the two complementary characters at any time to pass through levels full of moving platforms, tricky puzzles and many hazards that insistently try to harm you.
