Excerpt: As a game reviewer I see many games that are very derivative or are outright knock-offs of other games. Even entire genres often give birth to one indistinguishable game clone after another – a problem that seems to be especially rampant among puzzle games. However, sometimes a game comes along that is so original and creative that it completely captures your attention and makes you wonder why it wasn't done before. echochrome is just such a game.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a simple yet sophisticated puzzle game available for download on the PlayStation Network. The puzzles are quite challenging, so younger players may struggle grasping the perspective concepts. There is an online component, although it's limited to leaderboards and shared puzzles.
Excerpt: Echochrome can be quickly described as M.C. Escher , the game. It's a puzzle game that really forces you to think in a whole new dimension, and can be either a source of immense puzzle-solving pleasure, or frustration, depending on how patient you are. When it comes to graphics, you can't get much more basic than this game. Everything is in black and white (I don't mean shades of gray, just black and white). Everything is simple and clean line art.
Excerpt: In this day and age games are all about graphics and radical gameplay; well, the latter may be more of a 90’s thing, but at least that’s what it seems like people are culling for these days. On hardware that’s capable of pushing visuals to near-lifelike quality is echochrome, a simple puzzler that uses perspective for mind-bending gameplay.
Excerpt: "In this world, what you see becomes the truth" Welcome to the world of EchoChrome, the trippiest game you'll ever play in your lifetime. The game fits into the puzzle genre with the gameplay involving the player needing to move his marionette from point A to point B within the time limit by using 5 special laws. Sounds relatively simple; but like most puzzle games, there's a catch.

Excerpt: Echochrome is a game created by Sony’s Japan studio for the PS3 through the PSN and on UMD on the PSP. The game itself is based off the idea of perception. The goal of any given level is to guide your character (a white stick figure-like being that kind of looks like models artists use to draw human proportions correctly) to gather, for lack of a better word, several echoes of himself that are located in various places around the puzzle.
