Echoes is an action-strategy game. It's set in an extensive universe on a torn Earth almost three-hundred years in the future. It joins the famous real-time strategy genre with many elements from the third person shooter genre, in a side-scrolling environment.

Please note this game is loaded with action, and may load on your cpu. If you have any slow frame rates try to lower the graphic settings. Also note Echoes is a heavy story-teller, with scenes and dialogues. If you're in only for the action, there's always a skip button in the corner.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

looks pretty damn good.

But i cant play it cause i cant scroll down to switch weapons. maybe cause im using my macbook?

Dragy2005 responds:

Nah, play in a popup and it won't scroll down. It was a mistake to have the weapon switch on mouse scroll by default, I admit. I expected too much from Flash Player. But you can also change this key through the options though, or use Z,X,C etc. for specific weaponry selection.

Things of which to take note

Whilst this is an excellent game, and an RTS/FPS is quite novel concept, there are a few improvements that need to be made, listed here in order of importance-
1. Either pause the game while in RTS mode or give DEM AI.
2. Let buildings slowly regenerate HP, or at least repair in the background, so we can fight in the frontline while having our HQ regenerate.
3. Prevent people from using paratroopers as their sole units- perhaps some kind of limit for these guys is in order: ie: no more than 6 or 8 at a time.
4. Unlock some units in story mode, c'mon! Give us tanks after a few acts, et cetera.
5. Make Rocket Launcher guys less expensive.

All in all, good work on this flash, seeing as the engine is done, I hope the next installment will be a bit longer.

PS: Your English was excellent, although a bit of german accent got through, lol.
