Echoes is a really light, fun, enjoyable game. The controls are effortless, the different modes are interesting and varied, and you want to keep going just to see all the amazingly inventive level designs (a bird, holey cheese, a peace sign, a map of Australia, etc!), and then when you’ve unlocked everything, there are lots of different achievement trophies to earn, so it should be a good while before you get bored.
It’s all quite good looking too – the individual graphics aren’t particularly stunning by any standards but the art style itself is great, all pastel shades and thick brush strokes and the menu system (and the aforementioned trophies) help to give the game its own place in the current minis line-up. Despite the game playing most of its cards far too early (and never really going anywhere new in later levels) Halfbrick’s biggest issue is the copy for the game on the Store which doesn’t begin to describe the mechanics properly
As a first taste of the PSP Minis, Echoes gave me hope for the future. This is not a perfect game, but it is a solid example of what can be done for cheap. This is the type of product that you can pull out when you only have a few minutes to burn and want something quick and uninvolving. However, even when you play it a few minutes at a time, you'll likely complete the game too quickly. There's an interesting idea here that, if expanded, could make for an even better finished product. $2.99 isn't much for something this small, just don't expect a game that will radically change the way you feel about overhead action games. Echoes is definitely not that game.
