Description: Escape the ”Mental Hamster Wheel” and leave behind everyday stress. Dive into the fantastic visual worlds of Space and the Green Oasis combined with magic binaural music. Enter the Spaceship menu. Choose your music style: from classic, ambient up to electronic mixes. Enjoy stunning Space Worlds, a beautiful Green Oasis and a surreal White World. The “Chrystal Dancer” leads you back to Space. With your Controller, you can select the different audio mixes.
Inside the Spaceship you have more options: Relax inside the interactive Fantasy Shapes and Rays of Light. You can completely let go mentally while you are creating stars, suns, bubbles or leaves combined with electronic and world ethno music. Watch the bonus video, enjoy the binaural Audio Dome. This experience is meant especially for relaxation – enjoy a peaceful world without the need for much interaction.
Review: ‘Echoes in White’ is an interactive experience that is mostly a relaxing music video that runs for about 7 minutes and you can interact with it a little by producing various effects that will make you feel part of the music and visuals. To be fair to this app it does look amazing and for 7 minutes it does take you away from it all making you feel happily immersed and relaxed. But I am not sure it is worth the current £5.79 asking price. Yes, it is well worth a look, but I would try to grab this in a sale for half-price or less. Be warned, there is no gameplay here, just a few minutes of escapism at its finest.
