shadowvampI love games that play with lighting and shadows, like one of my all-time favorite games Helsing's Fire [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)]. Now another one has caught my eye called Shadow Vamp from Gamesmold, who you may remember from last year's interesting runner Blood Roofs [Free].

The gist of Shadow Vamp is that you're a vampire who spent too much time hunting at night and is now stuck with making his way back home during the day. Vampires and sunlight don't get along, so you'll need to keep your vamp in the shadows as much as possible. Luckily you can rotate the entire world at will to change the direction of the shadows. And, if you really can't avoid the sun, you can slather on some sunscreen to be temporarily protected. Really, check out how awesome Shadow Vamp is looking in this trailer.

If you're liking the look of Shadow Vamp like I am, you can head into our forums for some discussion and interaction from the developer. Also don't forget to add Shadow Vamp to your TouchArcade [Free] Watch List to get alerts when more news surfaces. Shadow Vamp is said to be "coming very soon" so hopefully we won't have to wait too long to get our hands on this very cool looking title.

    looks fantastic.

    • brybry

      You said it!

  • Boobi

    Looks interesting but more like a puzzle game than a runner.

    • toxiccheese

      Why do you think it's a runner type game?

    • themostunclean

      Yeah, it was never called a runner. Maybe you got it mixed up with "Le Vamp" or something.

      Does look interesting and fairly unique.

  • toxiccheese

    Nice looking puzzler.

  • Baracus

  • fransoccer

    This looks like one of those addictive puzzle games that make me want to smash my phone but want to beat it

  • creami

    now this looks intriguing.

  • WAV 80

    This is cute as hell!

  • Rustrobot

    Looks great!

  • Wizard_Mike

    Wow! This looks awesome!

    I love the part where he has to put on the suncreen and then rotate the island to get the sunflowers to bloom so he can run on them to cross the gap. That part tells me the will be some tricky levels that require some measure of precision and timing, rather than just a casual stroll through all the levels. Definitely looking forward to checking this one out.

    Love the idea and the designs. Too bad the leading character himself is designed VERY poorly compared to the rest of the game.

  • Panzerbush

    This looks great. Definitely picking it up!

  • Doxxic

    Incredible idea looking totally awesome.

    Love the sun and moon animations.

    Seems to have a bit of Double Fine like spirit.

    Definitie buy.

  • Eseres

    That looks very cool! I'll be downloading that one 🙂

  • Jacob Gehman

    As long as the controls aren't wonky, this will be an insta-buy.
