Shadow Tactics is a hardcore tactical stealth game set in Japan around the Edo period.

Take control of a team of deadly specialists and sneak in the shadows between dozens of enemies. Choose your approach when infiltrating mighty castles, snowy mountain monasteries or hidden forest camps. Set traps, poison your opponents or completely avoid enemy contact.

The group is composed of very different personalities. Working together as a team seems impossible at first. Yet over the course of many missions, trust is won and friendships are made. The characters develop their own dynamic and each member will have to face their own personal demons.

One of the leaders of this team is Hayato, an agile ninja, who clears the way through his enemies silently, with his sword and shuriken. Samurai Mugen prefers a more powerful approach and can defeat more fiends at one time, but thus also forfeiting flexibility. Aiko is a master of camouflage when she distracts enemies disguised as a Geisha. And the street child Yuki places traps and decoys enemies towards their deadly fate. The mysterious marksman Takuma however, relies on his sniper rifle and takes care of the enemies from a distance.

The player has to carefully evaluate his options in order to master the challenging missions: how will the characters behave as a team? Which one is best equipped for each task? How can they best master the given missions? Come up with your own ingenious tactics to vanquish enemies and complete missions.

  1. HIghly addictive!
    by Scott Henderson, USA - Feb 10th 2017

    One of the most enjoyable games I've played in a long time. The artwork reminds one of a Japanese ink-wash painting. Truly beautiful landscapes. Audio work from the voices to the waves crashing along the rocks is first-rate. Game play is definitely challenging at the Normal level. For the price and the number of hours you will be involved in this adventure, it is well worth the investment.

  2. Sneaked into my heart
    by b00p, USA - Jan 26th 2017

    Surprise underrated end-of-2016 gem. Who knew isometric stealth could work so well? Beautiful, lush environments, large maps with lots of possibilities, unusually excellent characters and voice acting, virtually bug free launch, which is, let's face it, almost unheard of this year. Check out the substantial demo (I did) if you aren't sure. Just great.

  3. Only played the demo
    by Super K., USA - Jan 2nd 2017

    But I spent so much time in that bad boy playing it offline, enough to know that this game was worth the $28 dollars I paid to get the full version. The gameplay is fun, the graphics are fine, the characters are interesting. Oh yeah, ninjas(sign me all the way up). It plays very well on my system (i5 4670k 4.5Ghz, R9 390, 1440p resolution). Would recommend to any fan of stealth and tactical games.
