Presenting a brand new take on the puzzle genre, echochrome ii introduces a unique twist on gameplay that lets players use pure imagination to solve puzzles by controlling light and shadows.
A follow-up to the original PlayStation Network hit, echochrome, echochrome ii introduces the PlayStation Eye camera and PlayStation Move motion controller to the series, offering a brand new experience to fans of the action/puzzle genre.
Remember all the fun you used to have playing with shadows as a kid? Now you can bring back those exciting feelings of creation and imagination by utilizing the PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Eye camera to rotate levels and control light and shadows, changing the way objects are viewed and the shadows they cast. The ultimate goal is to lead your character through the path from beginning to end, while learning how a variety of different objects can be combined with perspectives, angles and the use of light can be used to reveal shadow art to help solve the puzzle. Beware … much like echochrome, the possibilities are infinite and there is always more than meets the eye as every person can view each puzzle differently! Imagine and discover new paths as you move angles and light.
echochrome ii features an artistic presentation style that fans of the franchise will recognize, however, this time with bold colors and lively music to put any player in the gaming mood. Players can also look forward to the new use of color, which gives hints to help players through the puzzles.
‘FLASHLIGHT’ FEATURE - Using the PlayStation Move motion controller as a flashlight, players can create shadows to make a path and navigate the character to a goal.
NEW PUZZLES & 100 LEVELS - Rotate levels to explore different paths, hidden goals, jumping pads, holes, transporting gates, and more throughout 100 levels!
SHADOW ART PUZZLES - Move perspectives, angles and light in your own way to reveal shadow art and puzzle solutions!
USER GENERATED CONTENT - Create your own level using the PlayStation Move motion controller and your imagination, and share with the world! Players from around the world will not only be able to play your level, but rate it as well!
