A soothing and relaxing experience amongst oh so many more hectic platformers, Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds won’t test your skills, given it’s aimed at children, but it is sure to entertain you while simultaneously calming you down.
Controlling curious explorer, Poco Eco, you wander your way around some delightfully designed levels by tapping on where you want him to go next. Being challenged is rare as Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds is more about exploration than conquest. Progressing to the next section is usually a matter of running over a button to activate it, thereby moving a platform to form a path for you. A small red spirit guides your way, showing where you need to head to next.
Around a dozen levels are there and, admittedly, they won’t take hugely long for you to complete. Anyone who’s played a platformer before will know what to expect when it comes to button tapping and wandering. It’s clear that Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds is aimed at those who haven’t played many (if any) platforms before.
It’s a pleasant journey though, and you’ll enjoy seeing how things unfold. Besides looking gorgeous, Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds also sounds great, with a soundtrack that’s contextual as well as attractive. At times, you need to tap on a bass to get the music to interact with the scenery.
Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds isn’t going to tax you by any means, but it will make you smile. It’s a pleasant joy to simply wander from area to area. While you might see most of what ithas to offer in terms of challenge early on, you won’t mind so much when everything about it feels oh so very classy.
