[edit] Background

echochrome is a puzzle game where players must utilize five simple laws of perspective to join walkways, hide dangers, and create new paths to reach the echos, or shadow guides. Once you’ve mastered the five laws, use them to create your own mind-bending levels to play and share with friends using the custom level editor.

[edit] Gameplay

Each area shown had a variety of dead-end spots, as well as portals your character could fall through, which would reset him back at the beginning of the level. However, by shifting the perspective of the camera, the landscape of the environment would completely change. Line up a dead end so that it connects with another portion of the level, and a bridge will be built allowing you to travel to the other side. If you rotate the camera so that a portal is blocked from view, it will effectively disappear, allowing you to move over it with no problem.

[edit] Features

  • Elegant Graphics: Simple black-and-white art style rendered in crisp 1080p HD.
  • Unique Gameplay: Master perspective puzzles based on optical illusions across 56 challenging levels that are exclusive to the PLAYSTATION 3 system version.
  • Canvas Mode: Create your own custom levels to play and share with friends over PLAYSTATION Network. Users can even submit their best levels from within the game right to the game’s developers, who then pick the best levels to distribute to all echochrome PLAYSTATION 3 users worldwide.

This game is also known as Mugen Kairou in Japan.
