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.

fairly good game you got there

Well I guess it was an ok rts-a like game so yea..
Best thing I like about this game are the funny voices the soldiers has expessially the australian accent hahahaha but there is really one thing I can't forget to mention and that is the controls.

Seriously so many buttons for stuff!! I really liked it if you could do more with your mouse instead of all those numbers 1-5 or the really weird choose to make z-x-c-v-b a change weapon option... I got really frustrated on that... not 2 mention that the enemies when they walk past your oil derrick?? that the capture it so I don't have any income anymore..

Suggestions are simple .. Do make controls more with mouse or just keep an option open for keyboard users or mouse users so they have their own desire for playing style and the damn oil derricks .. jesus just have an engineer unit or something please. Also your main character aka Dem got blown away everytime and your fellow comrades just stand there and keep shooting.. was mentioned before.

Not blamming you guys it's a good game though, but if you make a sequel please consider thinking of my suggestions I would really appriciate that! :D

its ok though...

the tanks are so dificult could you made an anti tank class only not an upgrade
and also swithching with the scroll wheel while you were pressing shift to run it cause you to go back a page

this are some important notes to take if you want to be act 2 to be more awesome
and no im not flaming i am only saying the problems so you dont put them also in the sequel

Love it !

Totally perfect game . Only thing that i hate, is that to dodge enemy attacks, you should jump just in time to dodge them .

Well done!

Very original concept. Mix between a platform shooter and rts. I likey. There where a few control issues and bugs that I saw that kept it from perfect but nothing major. Looking forward to the next one.
