«©NCSX» Sony's Mugen Kairou was released last year on the PSP and the game featured 3D spatial manipulation of levels to create passages and new realities for the onscreen walkers. The sequel to the game titled Jigen Kairou is a 2D platform puzzle game where players hit switches to activate platforms, interact with in-game objects, and manipulate obstacles to gain passage. Similar to the original Kairou, simple line-drawings are used to represent the stages and the characters that walk and run onscreen. The main actor in the game is accompanied by "echoes" which are helper characters who can toggle switches or perform various tasks to assist the lead actor in his journey through the world of echochrome.
The music and sound effects in the game possess the same haunting lilt and echo effect as the original "Kairou" which jibes well with the stark presentation of the stages. In the first level (A1), players have to toggle two switches to build "bridges" to reach the exit. Stage A2 isn't much more complicated but adds the task of removing obstacles to reach the exit. There's a little surprise at the end of Stage A2 before the protagonist is allowed to leave but additional surprises may be encountered throughout the game. As players conquer the early levels, later stages progressively ramp up in difficulty with new challenges that require thought and proper manipulation of switches, items, and other obstacles shown on each stage. After successfully completely a level, you're given the option of replaying in case you're interested in improving upon any mistakes or mishaps that occurred during your initial performance.
