    Sound Shapes is a remarkable convergence of music and platforming. Because I've played through the main albums so many times, the levels didn't hit me as powerfully as they once did. But the community levels hammered home just how singular and enthralling this game is.

    Almost, nearly, but not quite painfully indie cool, Sound Shapes delivers a simple, stylish and highly enjoyable platforming experience that packs some seriously good tunes.

    If you're the type of person that enjoys user generated content, then this will definitely be your jam – and even if you don't, the clever concept and cross-buy compatibility still make it a sound investment.

    An inspired and creative musical platformer game with indie values but a great execution.

    Basically its a Platformer.

    Gorgeously done and executed. the theme and the musical creation community potential it just out of this world.


    I'm not really a big fan of such games, but it does bring a different pallet from all those action packed games and put a smile on your face. This games has to be appreciated, it doesn't punish (hard) you for failing so it encourages more people to continue on and try again.

    The icing on the cake will be this is a CROSS BUY game...

    sweet deal i say!

    This is one of the most innovative games I've played, the way they have mixed both the sound element and the physics of the game play is spot on. I was very impressed by this game. Especially by the death mode which was extremely hard and required precision as you have a very short time to complete tasks. The added bonus for a lot of people is that the game is cross-buy meaning one purchase and you can download it on your PS4/PS3/VIta, cross-buy is also included with the add DLC.

    In conclusion, a great game that I would gladly play a sequel of 8/10

    Weird, abstract and yet somehow addictive. give it a go and surprise yourself. A blob that makes music by platforming is possibly the oddest game I ever played. Expand
