Whats it about?
ADVENTURES OF POCO ECO - LOST SOUNDS is an adventure game in a beautiful fantasy world filled with musical elements and mystical characters. Players control Poco, a lone explorer who travels the land to recover sounds and save the world from ominous subwaves. Simply tapping to move and play sounds and pressing buttons and switches to move platforms, kids can navigate through the puzzles. Since the whole game is actually an immersive musical album by iamyank, and the soundtrack can be accessed on its own inside the game any time, there's a clear focus on music and sounds throughout.
Is it any good?
A wonderful, relaxing journey, this gentle puzzler is an antidote to loud, frantic battles and endless crafting. The music is beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous, and the puzzles are just challenging enough. Some kids might not get into it, since it's such a departure from typical action-packed kids' games, but that's part of its beauty. It could be a little longer, the controls could be a little more precise, and the world could be a little more interactive, but ultimately these take little away from the low-key, ambient magic that makes it such a delight.
