Lost In Shadow, Ilomilo, and Sherlock Holmes

Dec 30, 2010

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Lost In Shadow, Ilomilo, and Sherlock Holmes!

Lost In Shadow

A dark force has taken over the tower of paradise in Lost In Shadow, an innovative puzzle-platformer for the Wii coming out next week. You control the shadow of a small boy who must climb this tower to free it, moving only on the shadows of every game object. You can change the direction of the light hitting objects in order to make the shadows you move on change and allow you to move through each level. So, you know, don't be too confused when you look at a screenshot for the game and don't find a character unless you look at the shadows in the background!


In perhaps the cutest puzzle game of all time, you must unite Ilo and Milo on 49 different levels as they are separated by beautiful 3D landscapes filled with various obstacles. Switching control between Ilo and Milo, they interact to change the level so that they may end up in the same spot. The game's mysterious storyline is revealed bit by bit as you find postcard fragments in certain parts of different levels. Also, if you own A World of Keflings or Raskulls, certain secret additional content is unlocked, as each game is linked in certain ways.

Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of Osborne House

In the first Sherlock Holmes adventure made just for the Nintendo DS, you and Holmes must investigate the stolen genealogical records of Queen Victoria. Traveling with Holmes and Watson through beautifully hand-drawn locales, you must observe and deduce with the best of them to crack a case this big! Puzzles, riddles, and brain teasers all await your mind as soon as you pick up the game after its release on January 4th.
