Fallout 4 OFFICIAL Announcement

So if you haven't heard, Fallout 4 is happening, the Announcement Trailer was released earlier today (view it here: https://youtu.be/GE2BkLqMef4). Pretty much throwing the gaming community into a sudden episode of orgasms.

Not much is known as of know, other than it being a current gen only game (Xbox One, PS4, and PC), and we're expected to learn more in the upcoming E3 event.

You can pre-order the game on its website (http://www.fallout4.com).

Dark Echo

I don't think I've ever done a review of a mobile game, the reason for this is because so many are so similar. However, Dark Echo is different, it's a very unique game, and as a result, this review will be somewhat unique as well.


Story

There is none, besides reach the exit.


Graphics

Again, there really aren't any "graphics" in the traditional sense. It's mostly pure black with soundwaves acting as your visuals (see images in this review). White lines are your noise, blue is water, yellow are switches, and red are things that result in death.


Gameplay

The game is simple in practice, but difficult when you actually try to play. The first several levels act as a tutorial, teaching you the basics. After then though, you're required to use your brain to trick death, all while blind.

You can use environmental sounds (water droplets, frogs, flies, and other noises) or "bang" on the ground to generate noise and get a glimpse of your surrounding. However, doing so may alert hostile entities to your presence.


Controls

The controls, as of right now, are incredibly basic, simply use your finger to touch the screen and you move in that direction, tapping allows you to "sneak", generating less noise. I recently acquired a simple rock, which you can throw by swiping from your character to desired throwing location, so there may be more techniques I've yet to unlock.

Other

The game lets you replay chapters (which I'm not sure the number of at this time, there's at least 25 though), so you can play them as many times you you like.


Overall

Dark Echo is one of the most unique games I've played on a mobile device, using sound as the only way to visualize your environment.

9.0/10.0

Pros

- Unique play style
- Addicting
- Visually appealing


Cons

- Lack of visuals may be off-putting to some
- Some levels are either too easy, or too hard for their placement
