  1. The PSP-version of Echochrome“offers more than the one on PS3. If you have both platforms at home and logical thinking amuses you, try the PSP-Version, rather than loading down the PS3-game.

    For every moment of epiphany, wide-eyed with an awareness of a resolution, there's an equal number of blunderingly hapless wins, falling or jumping accidentally to new and advantageous positions. [June 2008, p.89]
  3. Echochrome is a puzzle game featuring simple yet cleverly designed puzzles. The graphics are, like the puzzles, simple and perfectly suited for the gameplay mechanics. Echochrome utilizes angles to challenge you in a plethora of levels, and automatically downloads new for you if you’re connected to the internet. There are some flaws to be found, but if you’re into puzzles this is a great title.
  4. Great puzzle game for those who want to stretch their grey cells. The artwork is fabulous, the level design devious - it has everything you need to while away a rainy weekend.

    A very peculiar game that takes advantage of the five rules of optical illusion to build puzzles and challenges. The minimalistic design and classic music gives it some personality, but it can become quite frustrating in long sessions. [Aug 2008]

    The thing that stops it short of the perfection it's aiming for though is that it's like a magic trick. Initially you'll stumble around, stunned and trying to take in how it all works, but as soon as you get it, you cross that invisible line from audience member to magician, and, while the pleasure of the ingenuity remains, the magic is gone.
  7. 'Niche' doesn't come close to describing the bizarrely pretentious Echochrome, which positively oozes self-importance from every pixel and line of code.

Not only isEvery so often a game comes along that goes hand in hand with a video game system... Lumines, Jeanne D'Arc, and Echochrome. 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! Full Review »
