Trapped in darkness, you must use visualized sound to guide your way through threatening environments. The sounds you create will bounce off obstacles, revealing the shape of the surrounding world. It won't be long before your only way of sensing the world attracts a horrifying evil that devours both sound and souls.

Survive through 80 levels that will make your heart race and leave you with an irrational fear of red lines. A foreboding soundscape, best experienced with headphones, sets the tone for your journey. Explore, solve puzzles, and most importantly - stay alive.

Dark Echo reviews and comments

What else should I explain big about this Game? One errs through dark le/bright Areas (Rooms? Caves? Catacombs?) And tries to reach the Exit without being able to get on red ... I say Spines, kicks, or is caught By a Pursuer. If you make Noise, you can orient yourself better, but the Opponents will also find you easier or faster or damn fast. In addition, there are yellow Surfaces, Switches, and blue Surfaces, Water that makes life difficult by Tons of Noise when you swim in it. Apart from the somewhat limited Number of Opponents (Persecutors, "Death Rings," deadly Areas) I don't have too much to criticize, because it is still varied enough. Not a Game you play through in a Set, rather what in between. It's mainly a puzzle game, with a slight horror feel, Claustrophobia and "Helplessness" as a Bonus. Well, the Levels are (relatively) short, this has often been criticized here. But since a Mistake means the virtual End, it would be rather frustrating if they were longer. 40 dark and 40 bright Levels (plus Secrets) for €3s respectively (thanks to a Sales) €2 I think is fair, after all it's a casual game. At The end of the day, I can actually recommend it to anyone who is on Puzzler. Fans of classic 3D horror rather less, is more of a thing for Purists. Oh yes, I forgot something else, the Degree of difficulty: The first 40 Levels are rather light, apart from maybe 2 to 3 exceptions. In the second Half the Difficulty level attracts noticeably, but really difficult are "only" the last 10 of the 80 Levels. But they, too, are to be created. I hope my Review could help you. ;-)

A crazy game, in which you have to turn into catacombs or who knows what, Pometamente to the Czech! It's the only way to see is to use the sound...

It's different.. Not at all of the kind of games I usually plays. Today, I've solved 10% of it. Manged to pass the 8th room. But, who knows what will become next??

Very boring and not stimulating in any way. Avoid it for your own sake. I really do not understand its price and previous reviews. It's super boring.

A truly innovative gameplay. In addition to being very immersive, the game is also scary. Bravo! On the other hand I see that the game is compatible with the Nimbus controller of SteelSeries but when I try to play with, the controller does not work. Damage

No other Game can turn on such a "Head cinema" to me, through the visual Abstraction And The corresponding Audio Effects! I'm playing it, after longer Breaks, now for the third Time. Best when the Days are short and the gloomy Season captures our Feelings. Actually, I'm Waiting for the second Part?!?!

Really great Game, one of the few that keeps you glued to the screen... Without too much frills and really original! The only thing is that I'm stuck at level 20... I can't understand! Practically it is as if the commands do not work and so as soon as the level starts the red "presence" comes towards me and kills me... And so he starts over again. I just Don't understand... Update it please because it really is a pity. Installed on IPhone 7 128GB

It's an interesting Game where you have to navigate a minimalist Environment. But unfortunately, the Game completely misses the Chance to replace visual Stimuli with acoustic Ones. There are Samples for Movement over different Surfaces, etc., but you can't orient yourself acoustically at all. In other words, it is not even intended to locate Things at all by the Origin of Sounds. And so the creepy Sounds don't help you put yourself in the Role of wandering person or feel "blind." You just feel like an abstract Character in a retro game.
