You know how the Green House effect works? Let me explain. When a ray of sunlight enters the glass windows of your car, they get inside without reflecting back because they’re high temperature rays and the glass turns transparent to them. So when the rays from inside are incident upon the same glass, they’re reflected back inside and that’s how the car warms up. That’s because the temperature inside the car is lower than the outside and the glass window turns opaque to them. This is the principle followed in agricultural farms in winters. So if we look at it in a magical way, the glass window is turning phases just how you close your ears when your wife is on the other side. But what if you had the same powers? Wouldn’t it be amazing! Let’s find out!


It’s the new iOS app called Shadow Glitch 2 that is the perfect example of what I’ve just told you. The app has been developed by Appdore and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Shadow Glitch 2 is one of the most challenging and exciting games that I’ve played in recent times. You’re a Pandora who’s trying to escape a jail. Floor by floor, you rise through to the top. But a jail is not a crutch for the children to play. There are obviously many hurdles in your way such as saws, bullets, etc that are enough to make you stay here for your lifetime. But a new twist has been rolled in by the developer and it’s the phase change. The game primarily has three different coloured objects: white, black and coloured. The Pandora can change phase to Shadow or Glitch mode. In the Shadow mode, you’re transparent to all the white objects and you can go through them like air. But you must avoid all the dark and coloured objects. When you’re in Glitch mode, it’s vice-versa for black and white.


There is a button on the left to jump and right to switch phases. So you must stay ahead of yourself and keep a good look at the upcoming objects and hurdles so that you can decide which phase you’ll choose to go through. But when you’re running at such a high speed, it’s like a sprint and you get very little time to think what’s next. So your fingers must be quick to execute every short plan that your brain creates in a microsecond and these short maps are necessary to keep you in the game.

The graphics are just stunning. The developers have kept everything neat, minimal and only what’s required. It keeps the game pure without adulterating it with any useless elements that over time only add to the weight but never help to fly. The soundtrack is also very interesting.

All I would say is that Shadow Glitch 2 is an app to go for. It’s available for free in the App Store.

Pros: stunning graphics; minimal art; addictive, challenging and exciting gameplay; intuitive controls; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
