A classic adventure title that holds up well today.
Shadowgate is a very unique game. It's what one would call "brutally difficult" without a walkthrough. The game consists of figuring out how to advance through the castle Shadowgate by picking up items and interacting with them and the environment in many ways, and I gotta say, it's an incredible game. There might be a few moments that are too cryptic and difficult, but the game as a whole is just fantastic. The music is great, the atmosphere is chilling (yes, in a NES game), and it can actually be pretty scary at times. There are also brief moments of humour with some ridiculous death scenes. All in all, Shadowgate is a classic worth playing.
