Escher, echochrome is a puzzle game unlike any other. With gameplay based on optical illusions, players must utilize five simple laws of perspective to join walkways, hide dangers, and create new paths to reach the "echos," or shadow guides. Once you've mastered the five laws, use them to create your own mind-bending levels to play and share with friends using the custom level editor. [Sony] Expand

  1. Incredibly distinct and interesting, priced right at $9.99, and is absolutely worthy of much more attention.
  2. Puzzle fans, even those who are skeptical, shouldn't hesitate to make this their next PSP game.
  3. 85
    One of those puzzle titles that doesn't come along very often, but immediately strikes a chord for its unique gameplay and incredible depth.
  4. With easy to learn concepts and simple, straightforward gameplay, Echochrome will have you defying the laws of gravity in no time.
  5. Overall, echochrome is one of the most unique puzzle games to come out in a while.
  6. 75
    This game will certainly appeal to true puzzle fans. It is a refreshing change of pace for others and EchoChrome fits perfectly on the PSP platform. However, it is definitely not recommended for late night playing as these addictive and brain-taxing puzzles will keep you up for hours.
  7. 'Niche' doesn't come close to describing the bizarrely pretentious Echochrome, which positively oozes self-importance from every pixel and line of code.

    Two things you'll notice when you play "Echochrome" for the first time; the minimalist design and the great soundtrack. I'm pretty sure evenTwo things you'll notice when you play "Echochrome" for the first time; the minimalist design and the great soundtrack. I'm pretty sure even if you never cared about classical music before, this might be for you. But "Echochrome" is not a music game, but a mind game, yet the music really creates the atmosphere with the black white design that runs very smooth and flawless. The puzzles start easy to get used to the controls and become step by step, more and more difficult. Although there is a certain time limit, the game itself is relaxing while being challenging. You don't have lives, you simply try again on the current level. This is truly a classy game, art and something new. If you are restless, all about graphics, action and unlocking achievements, this game is not for you - but I'd recommend it anyway, because you should try it. ;) Expand

Not only is the music in the menu and game sublime, the gameplay is simple, smooth, and fun. Thanks to the Japanese for giving us a demanding challenge without being frustrating! Expand
