It’d be really easy to roll your eyes at the sight of another indie platformer. Sound Shapes puts a spin on the platforming experience by using music as a key component of the game. Yes, this game was originally released December 2012, but with the launch of the PS4 this game has been given a new life; it was re-released as a launch title for the new “Indie” section of the PS4 Store.
Sound Shapes begins with a tutorial teaching you how sound is integrated into the gameplay experience; once you’ve made it past the tutorial for Campaign mode you are then put into a very unique tutorial for Editor mode. In this mode you learn that not only can you play Sound Shapes like a traditional platformer but you can also create your own levels, which is admittedly rather addictive. The more levels you complete in Campaign mode, the more items you unlock to use at your disposal for your own levels.
