The Adventures of Poco Eco is an exploratory 3D adventure game, with a protagonist that looks like a split between a cat, a raccoon, and an origami project gone wrong. The goal of the game is to help Poco Eco and his tribe find lost sounds by completing mini-puzzles throughout 12 animated levels. By downloading the game, you also get free access to Iamyank’s new album, whose ambient rock instrumentals provide an electro-fused feel to this grand adventure.
Poco Eco is a curious and likable creature from the get-go. The levels are comprised of splendid geometric environments, which end up being bright and shiny as well as brooding and mechanical. This game app masters graphic design so beautifully that it feels like it should be played on a much bigger console. I almost want a joystick or Wii remote in place of the screen of my iPhone. Each levels sets up a mystique that tends to be exclusive to high-rolling games like this, which makes navigating Poco Eco feel like a transportation to a new dimension of gameplay.
At $2.99, the app boasts a higher price than many other game apps out there. However, it is well worth the cost, especially considering the album that comes with it. A beautiful game, fit for those with an appetite for high-definition visuals and great music.
The Adventures of Poco Eco is slated for release on March 16th, 2015. Opt to beta test and be among the first to play it, here.
