YEREVAN(PanArmenian.net) — Armenia-based Triada Studio’s Shadowmatic won the Best Technical Achievement and People’s Choice Award prizes at the 12th International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA).
The IMGA is the mobile gaming industry’s leading showcase for groundbreaking innovations, displaying exceptional quality and new trends in mobile entertainment, whether the games are made for the iPhone, for Android Phones or other platforms.
The popular Shadowmatic 3-D puzzle game includes 9 rooms and over 70 levels. Each room has a unique atmosphere with a related musical composition that can be downloaded from iTunes. Shadowmatic features gorgeous graphics, secondary objectives, nonlinear level progression and 3D parallax view.
The game employs a special system of hints that could be used in case of necessity. First hint is a word or a phrase that implicitly hints at the hidden silhouette’s practical, visual, or any other properties and functions. Second hint is another word or a phrase, which, in conjunction with the first hint, will provide more context for the silhouette, making your guess easier. Third hint is the title of the hidden object. Final hint reveals an image of the shadow that you’re expected to project. However, the developers suggest that refraining from using any hints at all is deemed to make the game more enjoyable and fun.
Shadowmatic was launched in January of 2015 and has made great improvements to the game since its launch including Arcade Mode and new levels for children.
The application is available in 14 languages, including Armenian and in November 2015, became available on Apple TV.
Shadowmatic was included in Apple’s list of the best games of 2015. The tech giant recognized Shadowmatic as the Game of the Year and Best Innovative Game of the Year in several countries simultaneously.
The puzzle won the title of Game of the Year for iPhone in China, India and Russia, as well as Best iPhone Games in the United States, Britain, France and Germany. In Hong Kong and Taiwan, the game won in the category Most Innovative Game of the Year for iPhone, and received the title of the Most Brilliant Bestseller for iPhone in Korea. Also, Shadowmatic was named the Best iPhone Game in Japan.
