Sound Shapes

PS Vita via PSN Sony


Part platformer, part synthesiser, Sound Shapes' levels comprise of cel-shaded worlds where obstacles vibrate and enemies dance to the beats of Deadmau5, Jim Guthrie, I am Robot and Proud and Beck.

Chilled-out gameplay derives from guiding an orb around stylistically themed environments, either by sticking to walls or leaping over obstacles - though to be successful, it pays to be more attuned to what you hear than what you see.

A comprehensive level editor completes the package, and so ensures the potential for plenty more content as designers far better than I apply their creativity. - The Independent
