  • Summary: [PSP Minis] Echoes is an arcade puzzle game in which players collect crystals within many surreal, artistic worlds. The player controls Charlie, and must collect crystals and avoid Echoes, the translucent and deadly ghost versions of yourself which spawn each time a crystal is collected. Fight back with four powerups across 22 arcade levels and four individual game modes. [Halfbrick] Expand

    Echoes has already made its debut on Xbox Live Arcade, but it fits quite well in the PSP Mini library. In fact, it's one of the best PSP Minis available, which may not be saying much due to the scant library filled with sub-par games, but it's definitely a crystal in the rough.
  2. Echoes may well be the best download only game on PSP; an essential purchase.

    One of our favourites. [Issue#188, p.87]

    For a $3 Mini, Echoes fits the bill quite well.
  5. It is a fun, rewarding game, perfect for the train or bus and at just a handful of dollars, is worthy of your consideration.
  6. Despite the game playing most of its cards far too early (and never really going anywhere new in later levels) Halfbrick’s biggest issue is the copy for the game on the Store which doesn’t begin to describe the mechanics properly.
  7. If PSP Minis were TV, Echoes would be the weird arty cartoon that ran for about five minutes at 3am. [Jan 2010, p.115]

    This game is amazing, I never thought I would have so much fun for a few bucks. It's the BEST PSP-Mini available, and trust me, I played 90% of them. Expand

    I bought this mini completely spur of the moment, it was only a dollar, the cheapest mini at the moment. I gotta say it was completely worth it. You get around 2-3 hours of entertainment ,as well as several other modes besides the main one, this mini is such a great value. Expand
