CyberConnect2’s Shadow Escaper Dashes On To Android

By Spencer . July 2, 2013 . 1:01am

CyberConnect2 may be best known for making anime fighting games like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. They also make quirky games like Solatorobo and Shadow Escaper. We’ve covered Shadow Escaper before, but in case you haven’t heard of it the short story is you play as a nightling who has to run from angels during the day and turns the tables when the sun sets.


Shadow Escaper is now available for Android and it’s fully localized in English. Grab it for free here.

    Looks pretty fun, but I hope the issues people are talking about here get resolved. Doesn’t sound like much fun to me to download it and not have it work…

      Wtf? Your a mod? Since when?!

      • Solomon_Kano

        Sometime last week lol.

  • Shizumasa

    Ah, it’s finally on Android.

  • Neophoton

    Ah, Shadow Escaper. Loved playing it for awhile until Survival Mode became more of “pay to win mode” where you can basically pour in a boatload of magic crystals to enhance your score for the prizes that can only be obtained by ranking high on Survival Mode every week.

    Granted, it’s a F2P game, so it’s not surprising the update from a few months ago tweaked it to make it more skewed to swaying people to buy those magic crystals.

    Also for people having problems with the game freezing: Some of their more recent updates have been incredibly iffy. I remember a few updates back in May made the game so incredibly laggy that it was next to possible to play. At this point, I sort of see it as the norm for a few updates to be really wonky until they work them out.

  • GREE has it, can’t play without their account

  • ShadowDivz

    Looks okay. When i get my android phone il be playing it.

  • Hiro Oozora

    Ughhhhh .hack must really be dead if no one mentions it’s one of CC2’s original series. And still no sign of Guilty Dragon in english either……
