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.

not bad

well, first let me start by saying that the game looks great, the story is pretty solid, and the voice acting is great, but there are a few problems with it.
first thing i noticed is the overall difficulty, it seems like you need overwelming numbers just to take out a hybrid group and not get your ass kicked.
level 4 is also a good example of this. the hybrid pretty much dominate me by destroying all my buildings, and throwing bombs from a distance. when all was said and done it was just me and strickmen (who cant die) with my back up against an HQ recharging my bettery with my shield up. that level does become much simplier when you get the extra weapons, but thats from survival mode, which cant be unlocked untill you beat the game.
however this isnt enough to turn me away, and im sure these problems will be fixed in upcomeing acts. i look forward to the next one.

Just pure awesomeness !

This was an awesome game ! It's true , it had some flaws but if you played a lot of strategy games , Thing-Thing Arena and Brothers in arms : Hell's Highway ( or something like that ) then you wouldn't even notice that it has flaws and you wouldn't complain about the controls . I put it on my bookmarks so I can play it anytime I want because I just love this game . Good job ! 10/10 and 5/5 from me ! Thank you for doing this for Newgrounds , for us !

Few problems

The games was pretty good. Had a few things that bugged me though. One being the people talk way to much and it gets annoying. Also in some parts the game was extremely harder than i felt it should be. Alos the controls are annoying. Either the screen wouldnt stop moving or wouldnt move at all. Besides that it was great game and I likes it.

I absolutely retched having to hear rina-chan's monotonous voice acting....
Great game but i swear she just ruins every female role with the Same Voice Every Time
There's some control issues that have been touched on before. so i wont bother.
Love the artwork!

Fun game, but discouraging at times

Its a little short, but that's no problem because it has a survival mode! Now, this mode is fun, but it gets not so fun really fast. Your troops do your best to help, but sometimes they're to stupid to. They try and shoot through hills, while the enemy is lobbing grenades over it killing them. They should at least move when their first shots hit dirt

To everyone having trouble with survival mode, get the ranger reinforcement power, and just spam supply stations to increase the pop cap. And just summon these until pop cap says 30. These guys can survive a few hits, so keep them healed and following you. Buy guys off the vending machine when you can, and just survive as long as you can. This is how I got the 10 wave achievement and 3rd on the high scores (for now).

This might work, but you shouldn't have to rely on just one unit in games like this, you should have to use a variety to win.
