** Echo is designed for iPhones 4S and newer **
Echo is a new kind of music game: part puzzle, part instrument.
In this unique puzzler, solve your way through individual tracks of a song. Perfect the part and earn the ability to remix that track.
- 20 challenging stages of original music
- Novel puzzle mechanic
- Avoid collisions
- Create original music
- Fast drag and drop interface
- Hundreds of samples
- Exciting near-misses
- Simple loop-based composition tool
- Ability to perform completed songs and remixes
- Addictive and rewarding
Echo challenges the player to match a given pattern by placing pieces relative to the board’s walls. Hit play then watch and listen as the pieces bounce off the walls to make loops. The loops combine to make tracks and tracks combine to make songs. The challenge is to match the pattern without the pieces crashing into each other as they cross paths.
Echo isn’t only puzzles, it’s also a powerful music creation tool. Perfecting a track unlocks the ability to remix that part. In remix mode, use the loop-based game mechanic to create your own patterns with the track’s samples. No need to worry about collisions! Remix a track or the entire songs and then perform it by soloing and muting tracks during playback.
You’ll gain a new depth of musical knowledge after spending hours solving and creating intricate musical patterns. No musical experience required!
What's New in Version 1.2.0
In this version we have decided to remove "the most annoying wait timer in the history of games". ( pocketgamer.co.uk )
Although we must say, it *is* pretty cool to have made history in our first version of the game.
Thanks for your feedback. Keep it coming!

This game looks great at first, and I enjoyed the levels I got to play...all 3 of the tutorial stages that is. By stage 4 of the tutorial, it started freezing, lagging, repeating and actually forced me to shut off my phone because it wouldn't close. I decided to give it another shot after cleaning my phone out a bit. Stage 4 had magically completed itself, and then came the Stage 5 Nightmare. My phone wouldn't lock, unlock, respond in any way. I finally hard reset it and when that didn't work, I began searching for ways to take out the phones battery. Suddenly the sound stops 20 MINUTES LATER, and finally, finally my phone managed to reset. Memory hog of a game, and terrifyingly capable of killing my phone. Thanks, but no.
Fun And Unique!
This is a very fun game. It takes a bit to get the hang if it but, once you finish the first song, you'll get it. Things REALLY get interesting on the Phase song and beyond.
Great idea blending music and puzzle solving. I hope to see more songs soon.
I have not witnessed any crashing yet, as others have mentioned. Have fun.
for the music loving patient person
I absolutely love this game. I definitely recommend it. I finished every song within three days. It can often get very laggy, so that's why I took off a star. I was able to deal with the lag and close and reopen my app. Just fix the lag, and add more songs!
