Twisted Lands: Shadow Town

DoraAfter falling overboard while out at sea with his fiancée, Angel, amateur treasure hunter Mark finds himself washed ashore a dreary island shrouded in fog. Angel is missing and so are the townspeople, but that doesn't mean Mark's alone... Twisted Lands: Shadow Town is a hidden-object adventure title from Alawar Games that represents the start of a new series and a foray into the horror genre. While it might not actually be very scary, it still offers up a solid evening's entertainment. As Mark, you'll explore the strange town you find yourself stranded in searching for Angel. You won't find answers to all of your questions, but you will find a very dark place with a lot of very big secrets to explore.

Twisted Lands: Shadow TownGameplay is simple and easy to pick up. Areas you can interact with will sparkle, and hidden-object scenes will sparkle even more. While you'll pick up a lot of items just wandering around, most important things will need to be grabbed from hidden-object scenes. Fortunately, Mark's journal keeps track of all the clues and points of interest you come across. Even more helpful, if you click the hint button during normal gameplay, it will actually point you in the direction you need to go to advance the story; immensely helpful for when you're stuck, but don't want more than a nudge.

Analysis: Although it's trying to be, Twisted Lands: Shadow Town actually isn't that scary. It has an interesting story, but the overall vibe winds up a bit less "The Turning of the Screw" and a bit more "Tales From the Darkside". That's not necessarily a bad thing; there's a certain pleasure you can get from exploring strange places with heavily weird and dramatic storylines that Shadow Town delivers. I was genuinely interested in finding out what was going on, and all the little clues and journals only served to entice me more. The thing is, the writing is just a bit too awkward and stiff to really carry the eerie vibe and make the whole experience complete.

Twisted Lands: Shadow TownFortunately, the game looks great. While the character models have a little bit of that thousand yard stare going on, the environments are beautiful, richly detailed, and full of atmosphere. There are a lot of objects you can fiddle with, even though they don't do anything, and Mark has something to say about most objects you'll click on. It's a lot of small detail work that manages to make the experience more immersive and the town feel like a real place.

Shadow Town's biggest problem for some players may actually be the lack of direction. You never really want to feel like a game is patronizing you, but at the same time you shouldn't ever feel like you're stumbling around blind either. To be fair, there are generally a lot of clues as to where you should go next, but it also feels like there is far too much running around so that the experience isn't as tight as it should be, especially since the game enjoys making you run all the way across town and back just to pick up one item you suddenly need to proceed. Fortunately, thanks to the game's wonderful hint system it's impossible to get stymied, and if you feel like puzzling things out on your own, the journal will probably provide the clues you need if you look hard enough.

The game is a little on the short side, and will probably run you between three and four hours to play. Twisted Lands: Shadow Town tried to swing for the fences with a tale of horror, and ultimately falls short of really achieving greatness. But what's there is still a solid and thoroughly enjoyable title that shows a lot of promise for the continuance of the series. If what you want is something fun and interesting, Shadow Town provides a weird and involving mystery that will keep you hooked until the end. Hopefully, more questions will be answered in subsequent titles. Until then, I'm just going to assume a wizard did it. A fishy one.

@ Michelle
Here are my thoughts although I just finished the game myself.

At the end, you have become the very thing that destroyed the ships and perhaps the island? We don't know how the dragon "disease" is passed along (yet) but Mark seems to suffer the same fate as the artist from the cruise ship. This is hinted at when Mark remarks that he didn't think he could hold his breath that long underwater, after you open the dragon gate, and confirmed in the final cutscene although he doesn't seem crazy yet or hearing voices from "them" as the artist describes. I also think this has to have a sequel, there are so many loose ends (and I am very much hoping that it does). Angel was bad news from the start, I never trust that undying love crap from the male hero of the story- why did he crash on that weird island in the first place (after the murder attempt by Angel) and she didn't seem really that into him and more into the treasure. Anyway, I am guessing the husband from the 1920's killed the pregnant wife and supposed lover, although her diary makes it seem like she was just having that Garcia guy make Vincent a present (secret compartments and whatnot- part of a sequel?). That is my guess and it was never fully answered and doesn't really seem to relate to the dragon thing. Also, did all the villagers either become snake/dragon things or be killed by them? Is that why the island is empty? Does the underwater dragon-temple cause the ships to have problems (all those that were lost according to newspaper clippings and doc's journal)? Why are people turning into dragons? Can Angel really kill Mark in the submersible since she already tried that earlier and he survived because of this dragon-temple? It is almost a science fiction story of people mutating (for what purpose we do not yet know) and a sad, ghost type tale of the devoted, pregnant wife possibly killed by her jealous husband, since there are seemingly two different story-lines I wonder that there might be more to come that tie the two together and so the less than clear final cutscene.

I think this game will be dependent on the sequel (if there is one) to wrap up everything we uncovered during the gameplay- kind of like Pirates of the Caribbean part 2- there were so many loose ends and uncompleted thoughts that you couldn't tell if part 2 was a good movie until you saw part 3

personally, I was unimpressed when it came to Pirates- should have left it with the Black Pearl and been done with it

Otherwise fun puzzles and stinky backtracking, overall excellent albeit confusing. Here's hoping for a sequel:)

As far as my interpretation of the ending...

What I believe happened is that when Mark brought up the treasure and Angel took the knife, Angel went crazy as did two other women in the story. (The artist on the ship and the tragic pregnant woman's maid.) So, under the same effect as those women, she went nuts and stabbed Mark.

(Of course, I guess it could be unrelated to the women going mad as it would have happened rather abruptly to Angel in comparison to the other women, but I was thinking this was because she was holding the dragon artifact. Still, it's possible she just wanted to kill him since after all we did not see any scales or anything on her. I'm just going with the knife making her crazy thing since two other women had it happen to them.)

Regardless, after she stabbed Mark and he fell overboard, the dragon altar turned him into what I call the mutated frogman. Then he woke up, not knowing he was mutated, and proceded to look for his wife. It's possible he was the one that dragged her off in a fit of rage that he later blocked out. Anyway, he was a mutant the entire story line so when Angel woke up next to him she was decidely alarmed. Whether she was frightened of him because of the mutation or whether she was still just wanting to kill him because she went crazy/was just a bad wife (xD) isn't clear, but she's going to try and kill him again anyway. Whether or not she can is left open. No doubt there will be a sequel.

What bothered me was that we did not find out for sure what happened to the pregnant woman and her husband. Was she killed by him because he thought she was having an affair when she was just really having a b-day present made? Or did her maid return in her husband's absence and kill her? If so, what happened to the husband? Was he the one that killed Garcia? Why did the dragon-cult begin/come to a head in the early 1900s? Apparently people had lived there fine prior to that seeing as there was a town there. So little details like that are left open.

Otherwise, I liked the game but I would like to know more at the end of the game. Of course, there could be a sequel coming that answers the unanswered questions. If so, I'll play it, but I really hope they stop having us go really far back to another part of the game just to get one item. I felt like I was wandering all over the place.

Is there some reason I am not able to read the walkthrough for the 'bonus' chapter (which I have already played - even though the story makes absolutely no sense in the story-line, I am assuming it is set pre-main game, and post-'original' settlers)?

You should be able to read the words. The screenshots were disconnected but now work.

The bonus chapter is Mark's effort to get off the island. What we don't know is whether he made it to the ship or not.

The developers did say it would be a continuing saga, so I guess we have to wait for the next installment to find out.

How do I kill the snake at second floor? I put it in a basket but it is not enough. When i touch the hint button, the only way the show me is the &*?(*&() snake and the room. I don't have anything to use but the basket.

As english is not my first language, I think there is something I don't understand to be able to get rid of the snake.

I don't know if you are playing the download or mobile version of the game, but it shouldn't be a problem in either as long as you have the scoop.

You might want to take a look at the walkthrough above the comments to make certain you haven't missed something previous. Otherwise, your best bet is to contact tech support wherever you bought the game.
