ShadowCaster, though visually similar to Origin's Ultima Underworld I & II, adds a new twist: players can choose from six different "metaforms." Feline, Floating Eye, Gremlin, Frog Man, Flame Lizard, and Terramental are the choices and each form has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some forms allow access to harsh areas while others grant special abilities, from swimming to pounding a wall to pieces. Your quest is to find Veste, the evil shape-shifter who destroyed your people. You'll pick up items and, whenever you encounter an obelisk, you'll gain the ability to shape-shift into a new character. Digitized speech and 3D locations help transport the player into a world of magic and spell-casting. ~ Phil Mahoney, All Game Guide
