Shadow Blade: Reload Review (Late To The Game)

88
Shadow puppets. It’s easy to write off mobile games as nothing but greedy cash grabs and endless clones of Flappy Bird and Candy Crush. However, there are a few mobile games which rise above their peers and are every bit as solid as anything seen on console and PC.…
