OverviewOverview

Child of Eden is a dance and motion game that uses the Xbox Kinect camera. You use your body to shoot and move. Rather than fruit, however, here it’s beautiful firework-style visuals and music that are the challenge.

It's similar to an older PlayStation game called Rez, known for its psychedelic rhythm gameplay experience. Flying through space, you shoot various objects that come onto the screen, which each make musical effects as they explode.

Using Kinect players can aim using their hands and clap to change weapons, though traditional controllers can also be used. You can use additional controllers to provide external vibration and during the gameplay adjusts the music to the actions and movements of the players. On PlayStation, you can choose to use the motion-sensitive Move controllers for a similar experience.

Similar to a collection of music albums, the game features 5 levels, called Archives, each with a different visual theme. These are; Matrix, Evolution, Beauty, Passion, and Journey. Each Archive is replayable, changing each time depending on the player's performance and style of play in the previous run.
