Shadow of the Beast is a platform game developed by Reflections and published by Psygnosis in 1989. The original version was released for the Amiga, and was later ported to many other systems.
Shadow of the Beast was known for its graphics, with numerous colours on screen and up to twelve levels of parallax scrolling backdrops, and for its atmospheric score composed by David Whittaker that used high-quality instrument samples.
Shadow of the Beast was followed by two sequels, Shadow of the Beast II in 1990 and Shadow of the Beast III in 1993, with music penned by Tim Wright under the alias of CoLD SToRAGE. A remake was released for the PlayStation 4 in May 2016, and also included the Amiga original.
The cover design of the game is by Roger Dean. He designed a lot of the artwork used on psygnosis games and we have other games design by him that you can see by clicking here
