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.

There is just one MAJOR problem with this game....

The number of tanks and mortar bombers in the survival mode just make it completely unfair. There are so many of them and they usually OWN my buildings with ease. The air strikes are practically useless against tanks in survival mode. And another thing is that the amount of time to prepare your defenses for attacks is WAY to short. By the time moist of your base is raped, ANOTHER hybrid wave comes in. You should REALLY try the survival mode for yourself in order to see what I am talking about. You should make a survival mode with DIFFICULTIES! Normal = No mortar bombers and tanks and Hard = mortar bombers and tanks. I would REALLY enjoy your survival mode if those damn tanks and mortar bombers were not in it.... I REALLY hope you can see this because it just disappoints me GREATLY that such an awesome mode with so many possibilities only lasts about 5 rounds.

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.

Super Duper

Yeah, keep making more of these. Awesome voice acting.

The only criticism I can think of:
- Knockdowns too consistant
- It's easy to loose track of whats going on (specifically the constant motion of the screen, screen shake)
- Add a hotkey for the first command center, whatever it's called

Nice game

While there were a bit too many cutscenes (I could have just watched this as a movie) what matters is that there was really a lot of work put into this. The graphics are pretty good and the voice acting is great. It is a new kind of game for me to play with and it is certainly hard to get used to. Nonetheless, you guys all came together to really create a world of your own. While not the most original of ideas, it uses its gameplay well to entertain the player. It is rather fun to go around and select people like that.
