Sound Shapes: A marvel of aesthetics and gameplay

 

The released version of Sound Shapes is a long way from the game we previewed last summer. The small and simple (but charming) launch-bound title was given about sixteen different coats of paint, some heavy-hitter music talent and a few more months to...

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.

I can only hope the community breathes some life into this title. While the few songs that are included are a decent afternoon distraction, in the end, it feels like a wasted effort; the illusion of innovation wrapped in the familiar shell of LocoRoco,...

There's just something so surreal and relaxing about Sound Shapes. It's an interesting contrast because I've just come off my Dyad experience and while both titles boast a heavy emphasis on music, one is hectic and involving and a little out of...

Break a little. Move a little.

Creating my own levels; ...I can't believe that's fun; Campaign packed with unlockables; Challenge modes after completion; Tons and tons of user-created levels; Not having to sort through that garbage; Style, sounds, art; Buy it once for both PS3 and Vita

A little on the short side still; Even people make garbage sometimes

I will say now that Sound Shapes earns its grade as a PlayStation Vita game, and while I recommend you play it on that platform, it's just as entertaining and enjoyable on your PS3. Even if you don't have one, this is the must-buy Vita title you can...

Artistic pleasures combine with death-defying platforming in the excellent Sound Shapes.

Incredible and diverse soundtrack ; Clever and varied platforming challenges ; Striking visual design ; In-depth level editor and easy sharing tools ; Beat School and Death Mode push your understanding of level design

The trickiest part of this simple scheme to master is the sprint ability. By holding a button, you move faster, and this is necessary to clear certain jumps or avoid patrolling enemies. But you can't grab onto a surface when you're running. It's a...

Whether on PS3 or Vita, Sound Shapes was well worth the wait. And it's well worth your time and money, too.

Connection problems and online funkiness aside, Sound Shapes absolutely floored me. Just about everything it does – and with its grand aesthetic taken as a whole – will blow you away. Sound Shapes isn’t only a totally novel game that melds unlikely...

Sound Shapes Review: Brilliant, Yet Barely Hinting at Its Own Greatness

 

Queasy Games has built a dazzling framework, but fans will have to do the heavy lifting.

Sound Shapes Review

 

Sound Shapes is one of those rare gems that had me hooked from the second I turned it on. Its premise is fairly straightforward, though a simple explanation hardly does it justice. You see, the game takes a completely fresh approach to the rhythm genre

However, points go to the PS3 version during the straight-up platforming segments, at least in my opinion. After playing a couple hours on my Vita, I noticed a cramp in my hands that I didn't have after playing the game with the DualShock, even though...

What happens when Deadmau5 and Beck make a platformer?
