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.

Remove the base building.

This was so close to being a great game, it just asks you to do too much at once. Just focus on controlling troops and using abilities next time, reinforcements could be called in while in RTS mode without buildings.

That or RTS mode should pause the game so you can actually do two things at once.

poor selection of a control and movespeed

good idea but the character's movespeed is too slow(even while holding the shift) and using the mouse wheel as a control for changing weapons is not a good idea because the page is being affected(scrolling).

I hope you will be able to read this review

Yhea, nice story, nice idea, but most people don't have a strong video card for this game, so that makes the gameplay suck even with everything low, i like the story the game, but it's so tipical flash game that has so many problems with so many people...

Well...

After rading what Ghostwish said, it's pointless for me to write my own personalized comment.

Yet just for fun I'll say it again: great idea... the concept is there but you are lacking the gameplay side of the equation.

Also a small bug I encountered (and maybe it was just me): when you changed the run option in the settings to 'Auto-run', it doesn't do it, so I was stuck with the 'shift' run and that just ruins a chunk of the gameplay for me.

Although the chunky loading gave me an idea how packed this flash game was... really nice move with the cinematic and long story line, which brings me to the 'while in game' radio communications. I know they are there for someone who did not hear what one of them said, but maybe having an option of turning it off or making it go away would be a suitable way to tackle the issue... and with the amount of work that went into it, I doubt it would've been much trouble at all.

On that note, hope to see an ameliorated version of this (most probably will since this is Act 1).

Awesome but...

I really like the direction you took with this game. Its surprisingly deep as far as story and reminds me of other space epics. It was somewhat slow though with all the cutscenes and and the game was a bit sluggish, the latter of which could have just been my laptop. I also think that it should be converted straight to an RTS and less a combination of action shooter/ RTS. Otherwise I think this is an awesome game.
