There is a Tower that rises above all in an alternate world.

The boy is not affected by gravity but his movement is restricted within the thin boarder between light and shadow.
The boy is not alone in his endeavors as a creature of light joins him on his quest. A winged sylph known as a “Spangle" supports him in his journey.
Lost In Shadow mixes unique platform elements and levels of puzzling, to challenge the player. The combination of light and shadow creates a unique blend of game styles, with the shadow boy altering shapes of surrounding objects' shadows, creating walkways to previously inaccessible areas, and adventuring into a world never before seen on Wii.
