Game Description:Considered as a "musical platformer" by its designer, Sound Shapes is Jonathan Mak's (Pixeljunk Shooter) latest game. Players control a ball that must collect musical notes to complete levels. There are a total of 30 levels.
The player's ball must jump around, dodging hazards while collecting as many musical notes as possible. Hazards such as lasers operate in rhythm with the music. Each note of music that you collect contributes to an overall song that you can listen to at the end of the level. The order in which you collect the notes changes the way the song is heard. You can thus create your own version of a song and upload it, even though it is confirmed that each level can be completed perfectly as to hear what the level's song really sounds like.
Sound Shapes has a level and music creator. To create a level, you must first create a song via the game's editing tools. Once that's done, musical notes of the song you just created pop up around the space where you are to create your level. You can then add platforms to access said notes. Once you're done with creating your level, you can share it online.
