Echochrome Hands On Impressions from Sev1512

Sev1512 had some time hands on with Echochrome. Here are Sev1512's impressions...

"To sum this game up with one word, DIFFICULT. I can honestly say there is nothing else like it on the market.

Stages range from small, to large maze like structures, that have you twisting and turning the stage all around to figure out how to get your character to the finish.

Controls are very simple with the left analog stick being used to rotate the stage, and holding R1 while rotating, speeds up the process.

The music, takes a classical tone, which can relax, but just as easily frustrate. It gives the game an elegant appeal that is unlike any other game.

The game definitely invokes the thought process, and challenges the mind to no end. I got past a few of the first few stages, only to get stumped by a stage that looked very simple. Simple can be deceiving in Echochrome.

There are 3 options of game to choose from, "Infinite" which allows you to play stages at random. "Box" which allows you to play the main game, aiming to get the best time in each stage. "Canvas" allows you to create your own stages, and test them out. " Read more »

At least give me some credit for creating that stage that says my name...
Its a real working stage. Click the link, it shows the SEV1512 tilted slightly so you can get the idea of how the stage effect of it works.

BTW, Thanks for approving the article. Echochrome is really a great game, and deserves some more interest than its getting.

Might have to ask for my cousin over in Japan to send me this game here in Australia.

Have only downloaded free demo on Japanese PS3 Store and really is quite good to play, totally decievingly difficult.

Some stages look easy, but are then uber difficult.

I got the game from the HK store, as it has an English version.
Also the HK store has a promotion going on where if you add $150HK, Sony gives you $15HK after April 30th.

$150HK = $20 US

You can get $150HK PSN cards from
