Number 1: Echochrome
Echochrome, a lot of people may not of heard of this little game. But when I first saw the cover in my local Gamestop I instantly wanted to know what it was all about. Luckily enough for me the game wasn’t confined to the PSP but existed on the PSN Store as well, so I hopped to and bought it. Boy was I surprised at the amount this little unsuspecting game had to offer.
Echochrome is a puzzle game. The gameplay involves directing a little mannequin man across a stage, a stage in a rotatable world where physics and reality depend on perspective. Sounds complicated doesn’t it? The concept is derived from M.C Eshers artwork, I’m sure you’ve all seen the never-ending staircase, imagine that in game form and you’re pretty close to what Echochrome is all about.
Echochrome is really one of those unique puzzle games that you come across that you never forget. When i first played Echochrome it gave me that tingling feeling in my tummy like when I first played Dr.Mario or Tetris. If you have a PSP or PS3 its a must buy. And if you don’t buy it I will personally come to your house and chop off your hands for wasting them on useless games instead of one of the best puzzle games ever.
So that’s it, the top 5. Unfortunately Innovation can backfire terribly, we all love these new and exciting ways to play games now, but sooner or later they will be used so much that they become part of the boring sea of grey gaming we’re used to. Either that or the game passes under the radar, unknown by most gamers except for the few who will pick up a title because of interesting box art.
