Game Review

Shadow of the Beast III is the third chapter of the fantasy platformer created by Reflections and published by Psygnosis.

While the first and second episodes, thanks to the success of the franchise, were published on many platforms including Atari ST and the SEGA consoles, this game that ends the trilogy was released on the Amiga only.

The main character is finally transformed into a human, but the evil Maletoth is not defeated yet.

Shadow of the Beast III has a very nice music and a graphics style similar to the second game, but with some effects (such as the parallax scrolling) that are taken from the first one. The gameplay is more traditional, based on puzzle solving and some actions. Many fans of the series didn't appreciate the change of mechanics, the first games were more innovative. But at the same time Shadow of the Beast 3 is a bit easier, and many other players appreciated that.
