Tandem: Tale of Shadows is a very gorgeous made Top-Down side-scrolling puzzle game. 10-year-old Emma is intrigued by the disappearance of Thomas Kane the only son of the Kane illusionist that seemed to have disappeared and the authorities have no idea what happened and so it remains an unsolved mystery. So Emma decides to investigate the disappearance herself and as she is walking down the dark streets of London alone heading towards the mansion of the disappearance, a carriage speeds past her and out falls a teddy bear named Fenton who gets up and chases after the carriage, curiosity still leading her Emma chases after Fenton and eventually the two of them arrive at the entrance leading into the mansion.

First, I want to say that the game is absolutely stunning. This style of Emma reminded me of Alice of Wonderland if Alice had been a brunette. It appears that Emma and Fenton have formed an alliance of some sort as Emma wants to know what happened to Thomas Kane and Fenton who actually looks a lot like the bear in the photo of Thomas Kane just simply wants to return home. So together they work together to solve puzzles.

I loved that the game uses both a top-down style and a side-scrolling camera angle. When controlling Emma you get a top-down view, and when using Fenton not only does the game switch to a side-scroll camera angle, but it also goes into a black and white world as Fenton can only be used in the shadows. Therefore, Emma must use the light that she finds to help Fenton collect the gem at the end of the level. Be it making platforms for him to jump across or even just a level ground to run across.

The controls in the game were great and didn't feel weird, as I said before I like the two different camera angles in the game and the puzzles were well made and I really enjoyed them. I was a bit sad when the Demo ended, but nonetheless, this is a great game and I am looking forward to playing the full version when it releases in October.
