Black Shades is an intense first-person-shooter game about a bodyguard protecting a VIP from an onslaught of assassins. It is a direct port of the popular open-source game Black Shades (http://blog.wolfire.com/2009/02/black-shades-iphone/).


• Use seven different weapons to take down the assassins, or use your bare hands to disarm them!

• Slow down time to line up the perfect headshot for instant kills!

• Use the shotgun to blast the heads off of hordes of zombies!

• Zoom in with the scoped rifle to take out enemy snipers!

• Watch enemies fall to the ground with realistic physics!

"It sounds impossible, but Black Shades actually manages to turn the generally plodding, infuriating task of the escort mission into something challenging, fun, and strangely replayable. And before you say anything, yes: the graphics do suck, and no, it isn't a big deal." -Destructoid.com

"The game does a great job of making you feel like a psychic bodyguard with very basic graphics and simple game mechanics, and that’s really something. It’s so satisfying when you catch an assassin rushing in with a knife, only to plug him with your gun… or when you spy a sniper across the street, and knock over the VIP as a bullet whizzes over his head." - Tigsource.com

Who needs the Matrix?

Black Shades would be an impossibly hard game but for the amazing Bullet-Time-esque psychic abilities. As far as the graphics are concerned: it would detract from the feel of the game to have them improved.

In a future update, I would love to see the return of the psychic spirit-vision. It was a very useful (and visually appealing) tool to spot enemies in the original computer version.

4/5 stars


But the control is a little hard.

0/5 stars


Horrible controls, spend half your time trying to get your bearings. I rarely write reviews and have no intention of hurting the developer, but this game is so bad I would not recomend it to anyone. Don't know who is writing the positive reviews, but they are not even close to portraying an accurate preview of this game.
