The minimalistic and monochromatic puzzle game “Echochrome” released today on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and PSP. “Echochrome” allows the user to alter perspective in order to get their character to certain spots of the map. There are 56 unique levels for the PS3 and another 56 unique levels for the PSP totaling 112. The plain black and white line art may look boring at first but once you get started the game can actually be quite addicting. The demo is available for both the PS3 and the PSP and the full version is priced at $9.99. You can read PlayStation’s full post about it HERE.
It’s a fun and addictive puzzle game with really elegant and simple graphics. The concept is inspired by the famous MC Escher artwork, which explores infinity, architecture and impossible constructions. In echochrome, you control the camera and perspective on an infinite canvas, guiding a mannequin figure by carefully tilting and turning the level to create a continual pathway, allowing your character to walk safely through the design. Also, there is a Canvas mode, where you will be able to create your own puzzles from scratch and share them with your friends, or even the world! You can still download the demo for free and sharpen your skills before taking on the full version when it is released on Thursday.
