Echochrome

RH Numbers

Echochrome is a clever and unique puzzle game that tests the quick thinking IQ skills of those brave enough to get stuck in.

The premise is fairly simple, keep a mannequin-type figure strolling along a rotatable M.C. Escher-like world, where perspective is key. By turning the viewing angle, gaps appear to connect and platforms that once looked impossible to reach suddenly become assailable. It's a quaint idea and certainly one to silence any grumblers who claim innovation in videogames is sparse.

While Echochrome has been around long enough for a much more elaborate sequel to appear for PlayStation Move, the archetype still holds its own and is well worth a look-in for anyone who enjoys a good mental challenge and isn't bothered by fancy graphics.

From Dust

RH Numbers

Eric Chahi's recent take on the Populous-like God game genre made its way to PSN this September after a successful launch on its rival platform earlier in the summer.

Players take on the role of the almighty and work through various missions manipulating the environment in a bid to save a nomadic tribe. Control the elements from water to lava in real time in a first-person like view, restructuring entire islands on the fly.

Gameplay is simple, the visuals are great and there's nothing more satisfying than starting as an unknown deity and gaining enough followers to be truly worshipped as a god.
