Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a Metroidvania-style game developed by Fuelcell Games. The player assumes the role of an alien flying saucer exploring an insanely twisted shadow planet which has encapsulated the alien planet's sun.

The game is available on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Tropes:

  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The title is a pretty good indicator of the game's setting.
  • Flying Saucer:
    • The player's ship.
    • All alien weaponry tropes from the 80s-90s are in full force. Your spacecraft is eventually armed with a blaster, lasers, a tractor beam, deflector shields, a manipulator claw, and missiles. The only odd one is the saw.
  • Under the Sea: The Ocean area with its incredibly annoying currents, and arguably the hardest to fully map out even with all items. Also, your standard blaster is severely weakened underwater.
