"It gets quite difficult before it's even half-finished, but no matter how much I struggled with any particular stage, I always found myself coming back to try again. The darkness and the things that populate it are scary, but I feel the need to conquer that fear so that I can make it through the stage and see what's coming next. This is simply a brilliant game. I can't recommend it enough."

Shaun Musgrave, Touch Arcade

"Conventional wisdom might say that piling on the gory details makes video games scarier. But Dark Echo rejects that and creates one of the most spine-chilling iOS games around through the horrific power of the unseen and the sheer force of creative, intelligent, and masterfully constructed minimalism. Fear is the mind killer."

That app has a cool game concept which was very good executed! Already free? What a pity...

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Do yourselves a favor and wait until the game has a price-tag on it again, so you can pick it up. This being free is criminal. Dark Echo got a 5/5 on TA and I called this one of the greatest iOS titles of all time.

Disappointed (though unfortunately not surprised) to see this excellent game drop to free so soon. It's not all doom and gloom though as Bronxsta had a chat with the developers and they told him that "Dark Echo has sold well enough that they are working on their next game which is bigger in scope and mechanics, and they have plans to bring Dark Echo to PC".

Even Great Eli of Oz is shocked.
I bet there will be a front page article in the next hours.

But you haven't listened to the guys above. So why should others do as you advice?

I can only say: guys, metalcasket is right. It's worth the price. Buy it and support premium gaming.

Simple: because I got it free before even this thread was posted. Now the world knows
