We fondly recall everybody's favourite time travelling duo Marty McFly and Emmet ‘Doc' Brown's tyres squeal their way through the space time continuum at eighty eight miles an hour in Back to the Future through the late eighties and early nineties....

The third law, Perspective Existence, deals with making gaps disappear. By positioning the camera in such as way that a gap is blocked visually, the game treats it as though it doesn't exist. In other words, the gap isn't there and the path continues...

EchoChrome

 

Great puzzle game for those who want to stretch their grey cells. The artwork is fabulous, the level design devious - it has everything you need to while away a rainy weekend.

Awesome design, unique gameplay, crisp HD artwork

Repetitive sound and music, hard to know when things are lined up properly, some levels may be so difficult you'll want to burn your TV down

One for the puzzle junkies.

Echochrome Review (PSP)

 

Have you ever seen the drawings of M.C. Escher? He specialised in drawings which were actually optical illusions. When you first saw them, they looked fine – ‘Oh look – People walking up some stairs in a lovely tower – How quaint' – Then you suddenly...

The game comes in two versions. The retail UMD disc which is the bees-knees, and the slightly cut-down version called Echochrome Micro, which is available for download via the Playstation store.

Echochrome is the ultimate puzzle game for the PSP that is definitely recommended to "thinking" gamer or for those that love puzzle games and this is one of the those games. Brilliant due to its simplicity!

Truly Mind-Bending

 

echochrome turns perspective into reality like no game before it. Just make sure you've got some aspirin on hand.

With little beyond some ambient, meandering, violin-driven music and the constant clack-clack-clack of footfalls to the audio and start white on simple lines, echochrome's minimalist approach extends to all parts of the experience. It's also one of the...

Echochrome

 

Arty puzzler is a brain-breaking experience

Minimalist art style ; Brain-warping puzzles ; Feeling smart with victory

Feeling dumb with defeat ; Not exactly colorful ; Somewhat short

The most obvious reason to play Echochrome is its often perplexing challenges, but it’s also a pleasant place to relax - echoing footsteps and other sound effects make it feel like you’re in the Louvre, and the lilting classical music goes perfectly...

Product Specifications

echochrome takes you into a topsy-turvy world of 3D mid-air mazes, where your aim is to guide a wandering mannequin along a series of pathways. Sudden drops and dead ends may appear to make this a difficult task, but in echochrome solving a problem is just a matter of perspective... By rapidly tilting and turning each maze it's possible to see obstacles from thousands of different angles - and even remove them from view altogether. If a yawning chasm blocks your path, spin the maze so that it's hidden from sight behind a wall and the mannequin will walk across without falling. If two pathways don't connect, alter your viewpoint until they appear to join - and they will. In echochrome, seeing is believing... and out of sight is out of mind. Sound simple? It is - in theory. But with 315 levels of increasing difficulty and three distinct game modes, plus the opportunity to create your own levels and share them with friends via Ad Hoc Mode, echochrome is marvelously maddeningly hard to conquer. It's all a matter of imagination, mental agility and good old-fashioned brain-frying fun!
