  1. Echoshift leaves behind the conceptual moderation of EchoChrome and delivers a nice puzzling experience.

    A truly mind-mangling challenge. [Issue#191, p.82]
  3. An improvement on the earlier echochrome and another abstract but engaging puzzler for the PSP.
  4. If you can stand a bit of trial-and-error though, and feel like taking your brain on a bracing walk once in a while, echoshift is a very well presented, well thought out and enjoyable piece of mental exercise.

    Echoshift is a puzzler of the highest level. If you get frustrated easily, don’t come anywhere near this game. If you love to torment your own brain, then this game will give you plenty of levels that won’t bore you anytime soon. Too bad that the creators didn’t add a level creator. That would’ve lengthen the game considerably.
  6. Not as revolutionary as Echochrome but a nice series of brain excersises that should last a long time.
  7. A must have for people who love puzzles, but the rest won't be playing it for more than two or three hours.

    When you do surrender to Echoshift's world of relaxation, time management, and jarring cruelty, however, time - like your many lives - files by. [May 2010, p.104]
  9. Basically, the game concept is interesting, but only the most dedicated will have the patience to complete the game.

    It just doesn't feel quite as fun or innovative as the original. [May 2010, p.103]

    Echoshift was designed to challenge the most devout puzzle fans, a respectable move but one that ultimately alienates fans of the original.
  12. EchoShift provides a puzzling twist to its predecessors problem solving. Using time-shifted co-op with oneself makes for exciting problem solving, but also makes brains hurt. The cooled presentation unfortunately fails to provide comfort for broken spirits. Well thought out puzzles gives EchoShift long legs but gaming sessions soon runs out of steam.
  13. It’s fun while it lasts and definitely an above average puzzler and highly recommended for puzzle addicts but it’s difficult to get too enthused about.

    Better then its black & white predecessor – this time a wired mannequin solves time related puzzles. Someone should think of an exaggerated difficulty. [Issue#189]
