"I had never seen something like this on steam; ORIGINAL, FUNNY, TREMENDOUS graphically, perhaps it is missing not being able to choose between 3 characters that was usual in these arcades but it is a jewel that you should not miss if you are into retro. It is a game to "savor" little by little." lflati (Steam review)
"It's mind blowing to see it running at 60fps with so many parallax layers at 640x480 on the 23 years old Dreamcast o_O  I don't even remember any retail Dreamcast game achieving that! :O I NEED this!!" joe yabuki (Twitter)

"Do you want an arcade cabinet straight from the 80s at home, but don't have the space nor the money to buy it? Emulating the classics with MAME is an option, but when you also want new content and a game made exclusively for your PC, then this game is as close as it gets." svenevil (Steam review)

"If you like Shinobi, this is definitely a must. I see this like the Monster Boy games being continued by an Indie developer, except for Shinobi.
SEGA should probably get him to make an official Shinobi remaster / reboot!" The Elite MYT (Twitter)
"Completed the game btw, and liked it... Would definitely buy a sequel if this will ever happen." (Steam community)
"A homage to Shinobi and classic arcade games done with love and respect." (
"The graphics are hand painted and in HD, very colorful and with great detail in almost all levels, but if something takes the palms here it is the music, which will remind us of the action movies of the eighties, such as: Comando , American Ninja, Delta force and any other of those movies full of testosterone, explosions and seasoned with the sounds of Van Halen- style guitars , the truth with that style of music anyone is motivated to keep going despite all the adversity, despite that the Shadosw Gangs beat you 10,000 to 1."
"Amazing game. Addictive as hell  For anyone who loved the arcade games in the 90's this is perfect. I bought this on the screenshots alone. Awesome graphics and sound, vibrant colours..." "...We need more games like this on the xbox. Highly reccomend " Xbox live review.
"For avid arcade fans and dedicated players, Shadow Gangs is an excellent experience, having excellent sound design, visuals, and gameplay...The game achieves exactly what it intended to do, paying homage to retro-styled games while revitalizing them. I really enjoyed my experience with Shadow Gangs."
"If you enjoyed #shinobi series, you MUST to buy Shadow Gangs
. When you play with it you have the same sensations and it smells like the 80's ... I am enjoying it like a child! Great job! " Fran Sendra (Twitter)
"The visuals speak for themselves, but I was happy to discover that the game plays just as good as it looks; controls are tight and the combat feels really satisfying. Level designs and enemy types show an impressive amount of variety, with each of the game's levels set in a different locale, with completely unique art assets. Aside from visual variety, the level layouts themselves are more varied than I expected too! Some levels are far more vertical than others, some focus on perilous platforming, and others feature foreground/background switching similar to some of the Shinobi games.
The enemy design is quite well done too, each enemy type has a distinct and predictable pattern, and none of them are usually much of a threat on their own - but if you allow them to gang up on you things get very hairy very quickly. The variety in level layouts and enemy attack patterns makes each level and even each enemy encounter a unique challenge, so the game never gets repetitive despite its simple mechanics. In other words: the game puts forth a simple set of mechanics, and through different level and enemy permutations it tests your skill and understanding of those mechanics - just like a good arcade game should."
