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.

Good game but holy hell does it need some difficulty settings because for me the controls are good but having to switch back and forth on the fly during hectic battles makes it hard to manage everything.

At least add difficulty settings and the ability to repair buildings while in combat mode.

The story is one of the best the I have ever seen, and it's also very funny at times, the voice acting just drove the story along so well, ugh, i don't think I can explain how much I love this game, Excellent work

The game is awesome and hopefully we will see another game like this.

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.

brilliant but one little glitch

Great game! got me hooked. But one little glitch on the survival mode though. I just played an epic game that must've lasted more than an hour and gave me all the achievements. After two epic waves the attackers just stopped coming regardless of how long I wait for. I'd like to think I killed all the hybrid there is to kill. In the end I had to quit and lose my epically high score.
