Echoshift Review

 

Many may remember the 3D puzzle platformer known as Echochrome that was released in 2008 for the Playstation 3 and PSP. It dazzled players with its simplistic art style but complex level design and perspective based gameplay. Now Echoshift has made its...

Echoshift provides players with a unique and challenging game. Its design is simplistic, but the execution can really ramp up in complexity. Players can choose the pace they want to progress at and it is welcoming. The content provided is expansive...

If you enjoyed the mind-warping MC Escher world that was echochrome, then prepare to move from three dimensions to four with the release of echoshift from Artoon and Sony. Dropping the floating platforms used in the previous game, the little mannequin...

I still have Echochrome on my PS3 and every now and then, I give it a go. It's usually when I'm feeling particularly masochistic and after an hour or two, my horribly confuzled mind wears down and I start randomly spinning the puzzle about, desperately...

The difficulty ramps up by adding other considerations, like booby traps that might actually force you to rely on reactions rather than brain activity. The interesting part is exactly how these traps will be implemented and how they affect the time...

The follow-up to Echochrome is just as mind-bending as its predecessor, with a heavy focus on recording your movements and interacting with your past self.

Puzzles without Borders

The same high for all puzzle games: the "a-ha!" moment

Having to redo the first four casts the same way just so I can reattempt the fifth one again and again is tiresome

These flaws are easy to forgive in light of the game's unique strengths. Puzzle games are the sadists of the digital world, and all too often the only reward for victory is greater pain. Alone among its kind, this game accepts players as they are....

One of the more unusual puzzle games on the PSP to date is Echochrome, a puzzle game, in which you controlled what looked like an artist's mannequin, which used an extremely simplistic art style and relied on perspective. Echoshift continues with the...

Echoshift is a unique puzzle experience that's quite unlike any other on the PSP. The whole time manipulation concept works very nicely and has to be cleverly used in order to solve some of the more challenging stages in the game. Echochrome in many...

Players will be challenged to solve over 30 different puzzle types, which include moving objects, doors controlled by switches, and crumbling floors, all within nine themed worlds (each will have five levels) based on different puzzle concepts and...

There is a lot of variety, multitudes of challenges and variations that can be enjoyed in short bursts, and you simply cannot go wrong with it

Fascinating puzzle concepts ; Perfect sense of progression ; Amazingly variety in puzzles and challenges ; Excellent replay value ; Future DLC releases promise more content

You can't create your own levels

As for my mindless little scientist buddy, he may be a douche, but the fact of the matter is that whenever I get to meet him, I start craving for a puzzle game. It feels good to know that I only have to reach out to my pocket and start playing!

Review: Echoshift (PSP)

 

PSP perspective puzzling.

Good number of levels, excellent level design ; Simple, well-designed interface suited for the nuances of the game ; Playable in short bursts when you're travelling

Loading times are a tad long ; Annoying music ; May be too hard for some players; requires a lot of patience

I’m good at puzzle games. Echochrome was the first PSN game I bought and I loved it. Such gems as Lumines Supernova, Cuboid, Trash Panic (rubbish, literally), Zuma, Puzzle Quest Galactrix, Droplitz, Critter Crunch, Peggle, Switchball and others...

In 2008, Sony's Japan Studio gave PlayStation owners echochrome, a unique puzzle game that revolved around perspectives. Two years later, the same studio has returned with their follow-up, echoshift . This time, they focused their attention on 'time...

Interesting puzzle concept ; Great ease in challenge that never makes things feel too difficult ; Excellent variety in the puzzle challenges ; Star Rating System will make you want to get the best score/time possible ; Promise of additional content

Reliance on colours will pose a problem for those who are colour-blind ; No ability to create your own levels...yet

If you enjoyed echochrome, picking up echoshift is a no brainer. At the same time, if you've been craving a puzzle game that can be enjoyed in short bursts, works your brain muscles and still offers plenty of value, once again, you cannot go wrong here.
