Sound Shapes

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Innovation. Smart developers seek it out in the hopes of capturing lightning in a bottle: that one grasp at a title that will delight and entertain the masses with its unique, fun take on a familiar theme, heightened through innovation. Sound Shapes treads familiar ground, but combines ideas in a seemingly innovative way to evoke a new love for something we may have seen before. Problem is, it doesn't always work out that way.

  • Conclusion: Sound Shapes Image © Sony What do you expect from a video game? If you want high-speed action, you're probably nowhere near a review of "Sound Shapes." And yet I think this is a game that really could appeal to absolutely everyone. There's so much creativity on display here and the potential for hours and hours of entertainment for a remarkably low price point. It's one of the best games of the year. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

  • Excerpt: Sound Shapes reminds me of that old phrase: "business is about ready to pick up." The Playstation Vita has had a drought that is getting ready to end. To be fair Sound Shapes is on the PS3 and PS Vita. So families can enjoy this eclectic adventure on either system. I enjoy it on the PS Vita personally. Sound Shapes can be difficult to classify.

Review: Is the Best of PlayStation Network: Volume 1 really the best?

GameZone
18 October 2012
  • Excerpt: PlayStation Network has had plenty of hits over the years. We've seen games like Shatter, Super Stardust HD, The Unfinished Swan and, of course, Journey release to critical acclaim. With the Best of PlayStation Network Volume 1 , Sony has boldly attempted to take the very best, most loved PSN titles and put them into one bundle for your convenience. Admittedly, my experience with PSN games is limited, so I can't comment as to whether When Vikings Attack!

Sound Shapes Review

  • Excerpt: The Vita is an extraordinarily frustrating console. The tech is there. The design is there. Everything is in place for Sony's expensive little beauty to soar into the handheld gaming stratosphere. And yet, with the world at its feet, there is nothing to play. The fine Gravity Rush notwithstanding, the Vita landscape has been barren and exasperating.

Fun indie combines music, platforming, and creativity.

It includes a simple but powerful level creator that encourages players to tap into their creative side and design their own levels, which double as musical tracks. Players can then share their creations with the game's community.

  • Excerpt: 2D platformers have been enjoying something of a revival lately, particularly from the indie scene, and Sounds Shapes is the one bringing the music to the party. It blends striking graphics with a music sequencer to create an experience that, when at its best, makes the player feel as though they're playing a music video.

  • Conclusion: Sound Shapes boasts an effortless dedication to intoxicating the player's senses through its sights and sounds. Call it distilled bliss or displaced affection, but there's an explicit sense of euphoria acquired by absorbing Sound Shapes' rich presentation. It's great at being a game, but it's better understood as a favorite song or album. It's something to be played and enjoyed if for no other reason than the sheer pleasure of repeating the process.

  • Excerpt: Sound Shapes is a game to be experienced, by everyone. It’s best in short bursts and not particularly challenging outside of the Death Mode, but that’s just fine, because it embraces the idea of being a purely creative, fun experience, and it delivers.
  • Pros: Sound design, graphics design, level design, interface design
  • Cons: Occasional server issues around launch, Beat School a bit short
