“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.

Amazing Game!

This app should set the bar for all other apps.

A Horror Game That Leaves You Thinking

Dark Echo is unlike any horror game I have ever witnessed. It isn't concluded by logic, it's formed by imagination and impulse. (Spoilers ahead in what I say next) When you enter that final door, everything flashes white. You hear birds chirping around you. Your character slows to a halt, and then the game ends. It leaves you shaking down to the bone and in tears. 'What happened?' You may wonder. It's up to you to decide that. In my mind, I pictured the guy escaping. He slows down to a halt until suddenly collapsing down onto his knees, sobbing his heart out. Where was he? Who was he...? This was my theory until I reopened the app to see it continued in white and black now. In my head and possibly in his, I see the sounds of birds chirping as an illusion. Just before he gets slayed by that nearby red monster, realization hits him in the face that it's just starting all over again. No matter what the poor guy does, he's always stuck in this never ending madness. In conclusion, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for creating such a brilliant and innovative game. I have a small complaint though. As of right now, the game will not stop CRASHING. I cannot even open the app. I really do not want to delete the app because I was 1 level away from completing the Light realm. At first it crashed when I decided to go replay the first two episodes of the dark realm, and now it refuses to let me open the game. I would really really appreciate if you tried to fix this for me. Maybe other people are having the same problem? I just want to finish the game..

Needs more direction

Interesting game but i've been wandering the same level for weeks!!! Need more hints that I'm going the right way. Game is getting frustrating.
