echochrome Review: "Poppin', Lockin' and Thinkin"

Kotaku: Sony touted it's minimalist PlayStation Network puzzler echochrome at E3 2007 as a game inspired by the classic, simple-but-deep rule sets of traditional brain teasers like the Chinese board game Go and the Rubik's Cube. Pitched as the PlayStation 3 game with "the least graphics and the most gameplay," echochrome lets players guide an animated artist mannequin through a blocky construct, picking up "echoes" via Escher-esque perspective bending.

echochrome, with its simple black and white line-work aesthetic is certainly lacking in the expected visual fireworks common in most modern games, as promised. But does it feature the proportionate gameplay of its inspiration?

The story is too old to be commented.

Still waiting for this game to come-out in the Australian PS3 Store - on their web it says around May, hopefully a few more days/weeks from now.
Have downloaded the demo version off my Japanese PS3 Store and loved it., quite different and simply deceiving.
Can't wait for the entire version and at such a very reasonable price - read for the U.S. version just costs around 9-10 dollars.
