Echochrome 2 has one music track that is 75 minutes long

This has to be some kind of record! And this one song had better be a great song. The soundtrack CD for Echochrome 2 is 75 minutes long, which is a pretty good length for any game. What's crazy is that the whole CD is just on...

Echochrome postcards are perfect for obscure humor mailings

Back when I picked up Echochrome for the PSP in Japan, I got a little bonus with it: a set of four Echochrome postcards, each with their own 4-koma on them. A 4-koma is Japan's equivalent of the comic strip, telling a joke wi...

PSP version of Echochrome won't see UMD in North America

For those looking for a hard copy of Echochrome on the PlayStation Portable, now might be a good time to start checking Play-Asia's stock. LevelUp was able to exclusively confirm that when the game comes to North America, it ...

Destructoid review: Echochrome photo
Destructoid review: Echochrome
by 8BitBrian

You might remember the game from when we salivated over it back at TGS. The game looked like an utter mindf*ck, and everyone thought it would be a great addition to the PS3’s online library, filling it out just a little more. Of course, the excitement surrounding Echochrome died out, with other games garnering attention from just about everyone on the 'net. While walking around Yodobashi Camera last Monday, I was forcefully reminded that Echochrome was coming out the next day by a rather large display. And not only that, there’s a PSP version!

Having decided against lugging my giant black behemoth of love with me to Japan, I was thankful that my PSP was at hand, and that UMDs are blissfully region-free. I stayed true to my promise, and bought the game the very next day, eager for some puzzle-poundin’ action – something that I had sorely been missing since Brad Rice's Block-Droppin' Hootenanny.

As soon as I jumped into things, I realized that puzzle games, along with rhythm games, were one of my weaker genres. Yet, like Linde, I enjoy being bent over and spanked by games that I have no business playing. In the range of puzzle games, Echochrome is on the far end from Professor Layton, forcing you to use the right side of your brain as much as you can to solve these puzzles. If you enjoyed NEVES, then Echochrome will tax your mind even more.

Clever Echochrome Japanese TV spot reminds me of the good old days

Echochrome had Destructoid talking all the way back in 2007 at the Tokyo Game Show, where Nick Chester marvelled over its weirdness and generally sounded stoned out over it's Escher-esque leanings. The demo came out in Japan ...

GDC 08: New gameplay footage of Echochrome (also, hands-on!)

Nick already got some short hands-on time with upcoming PSN game Echochrome at last year’s TGS, but the English build -- which was available to play at Sony’s fancy press room in the swank W Hotel -- offered a fe...

TGS 2007: Echochrome trailer wants to chrome your echo

The PlayStation 3 may have cell processors, the Blu-ray, Talladega Nights and swanky hi-def graphics that produce a visual orgy of pretty colors and sparkly explosions, but the public response to Echochrome is proof positive ...

Sony teases us with new echochrome teaser site

The new Japanese teaser site for their fantastic-looking puzzle game echocrome may appear a bit sparse at first sight, but that's probably intentional, seeing has how the game is in only black and white. We haven't heard much...
