Developer's website:
    As the ShadowCaster, you take on many forms in the battle for survival. You're the resourceful human adventurer, the fierce, six-limbed cat, the versatile, flying dragon and others. But change comes at a price. In one form, you're quick and agile, but small and fragile. In another, you're a nearly indestructible giant, but ponderous and slow. You alter shapes at will - and each new form unleashes new powers...and reveals new vulnerabilities.

    Morph At Will

    Each of your six metaforms (feline, floating eye, gremlin, frogman, flame lizard, and terramental) unleashes new powers and reveals new weaknesses. Fascinating shapeshifting technology morphs you from human to metaform and back before your eyes.

    Replay the adventure in a number of different ways, based on the morphform you select at any given time.

    The Pace Never Falters

    Fly, swim, and run indoors and out, through dungeons, caverns, castles, mines, volcanoes, and underwater caves.

    Immerse yourself in a combat and puzzles -- no mapping, spell memorization or anything that might slow the breakneck speed of this surging adventure.

    CD-Enhanced Sights And Sounds

    Submerge yourself in the most outstanding 3-D animations and texture maps in any point-of-view game -- only possible with CD-ROM.

    Battle the latest formidable creatures in two challenging new levels of electrical excitement -- where even the walls are watching you!

    Enjoy the heightened experience of fully digitized speech and an even richer tapestry of sound than before!
