For the first weekend in a long time I played a game that wasn’t Dark Souls. That game was Sound Shapes. It occurred to me that we hadn’t had a Community Review for Sound Shapes, and I’d like to rectify that!
We’re only getting a taste of the onslaught of great user-generated levels for the PS3 and Vita’s splendid (SPLENDID) Sound Shapes. This one, posted to YoUTube by OneMillionHP, cleverly builds the skyline of L.A., then lines it up with actual footage of the city.
I’ve had my eye on Sound Shapes for a good long while; the music-platformer-sequencer isn’t quite like any game I’ve played before, and I’m entirely enamoured of its approach to musically integrated level design.
