Whether or not you're still on the fence about the Sony's new handheld, the PlayStation Vita, one game we found absolutely mesmerizing on the console was Sound Shapes. In Sound Shapes you guide a ball around and collect orbs that correspond to musical instruments. It doesn't sound like much, but Jake Gaskill's preview was absolutely glowing.
"The gameplay is fairly straightforward since all you have to do is guide a suction cup-covered ball capable of sticking to certain surfaces around each level, avoiding threats along the way. The kicker is that as you progress through levels, you collect orbs that correspond to musical instruments and notes. Even the levels themselves are built in such a way that platforms and objects make music as well. So as you play the game, you’re actually “playing” the score too, and when you’re building levels, you’re also building an interactive symphony too. Nifty, huh?"
