** Most Innovative iPhone Game of 2015 ** - Apple

“Dark Echo is a brilliant, unique, and incredibly tense must-have masterpiece.” 5/5 - TouchArcade

“A masterful execution of minimalist design… play this with headphones, in the dark, alone.” - Indie Game Enthusiast

“One of the creepiest and most creative horror games on the App Store.” 4.5/5 - 148Apps


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.


No advertisements, no in-app purchases.

Designed for iPhone 4 and above.

* This game relies on the visualization of sound and cannot be played with audio only. It is not recommended for blind players.

Delightfully creepy


Such an apparently simple concept, but it’s really effective! Creeped me right out! Well worth the cost.

Great game


This is an awesome game because it makes your imagination work against you. Wait what's that moving, oh it's just flies. What's that sound oh it's water. Is there a monster around that corner etc. basically the only reason that this is scary is because you imagine what it looks like in your mind when really all you are seeing is lines. Genius horror strategy.

Good 4/5

Teh cookesh

It's a really good time waster but I don't see how this is a horror game, I've played it for a while but it doesn't seem all that scary, if you want to make it scarier maybe add some monster of some sort of like a jumpscare in certain levels. I gave this game 4/5 because everything is good except the fact that it's not scary or a horror game as you may call it. Anyway nice game overall :)
