No Progressive Paywalls!!!

Shadow of the Orient has gone through many updates recently in an attempt to improve upon the overall game experience for mobile players. First off, Shadow of the Orient does not have any progressive pay walls so you can play the game from beginning to end without having to spend any real money in the live shop. The live shop is only intended for getting those game shop items faster incase you want don't want to grind it out collecting coins and gems during gameplay...and you can also get free coins and gems by watching ads through the live shop which was added in a recent update. We've also made gameplay adjustments to several challenge mode levels to make it a bit easier to complete each challenge with touchscreen controls. We've also cut off support for Android 8 and older as we've had quite a few players report performance issues and quite frankly the hardware is probably a bit too old to handle a mobile game optimized for 60fps.

Our Youtube channel was also recently updated with new playthrough videos to reflect the recent changes and new enemies added to the game. We hope you're enjoying our game and if you run into any issues or problems please reach out to Spacelab Games directly instead of leaving a 1 star review on our mobile storefronts...our support email is Thanks : ]
