Australian developer Halfbrick comes Echoes, an action arcade game to be released on November 19th on the new PSPminis service on the PlayStation Network â€“ ESRB rating E for EVERYONE. Players control Charlie, a girl transported to a dream world while studying art, and finds herself in a series of bizarre and surreal levels. To complete each level, the player must collect crystals and avoid the deadly Echoes which spawn and follow the playerâ€™s previous movements. Gameplay quickly becomes fast-paced strategic action as more complex paths are taken and the Echoes begin to close in!
- Arcade: Collect the specified number of crystals without dying and progress through each level. High score times are recorded.
- Jackpot: Obtain the highest score possible within 60 seconds.
- Survival: Obtain the highest score within the time limit; collecting crystals adds to the time and hitting Echoes loses time.
- Clockwork: Controls the flow of time, and therefore movement of Echoes with left and right shoulder buttons.
Echoes is packed with content in one small download, and will be released on November 19th on PlayStation Network at a price of $2.99, and you can view the trailer on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZHXaZQf3ys
