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.

Nice, but frustrating to play

This is really nice game in general, good game-play and nice graphics. There were a couple of things that made the experience in general kind of annoying:
1 - the cut scenes are too long and too slow. I like cut scenes, I like having a plot and character development, but they go on for about 10 minutes (literally) before you even get to start playing. I ended up just skipping through them, but I felt that made the whole game much less interesting. It was a shame, if they had been a bit shorter and a bit faster this game would have been a 10!
2 - Having the weapon changer be the scroller is a bad decision. I then tried to change this, but didn't find any convenient button to change it to, all the buttons that are close enough are used for other commands. I'm not sure what to do about this, so you don't lose any points, of course, just something worth keeping in mind because it stuck out to me...

That being said, this is still a great game, one of the best and largest shooters I've seen in a while, thanks!!

This is Frikin Beast!!!!!

All in all a genius idea and i love the combat or strategy modes but i do have a few things to recommend:
1. like keldoclock said unlock units in story mode would be great
2. Dem's battery is what really keeps him alive when you think about it so it should have some sort of regeneration factor
3. Finally, it should be somehow possible to control unit groups in strategy mode waiting for the hybrids to hit them before they act is killing me!!!!
All in all one of the better shoot 'em ups i've ever seen and i can't wait for the next one

Rated 4 / 5 stars

looks pretty damn good.

But i cant play it cause i cant scroll down to switch weapons. maybe cause im using my macbook?

Dragy2005 responds:

Nah, play in a popup and it won't scroll down. It was a mistake to have the weapon switch on mouse scroll by default, I admit. I expected too much from Flash Player. But you can also change this key through the options though, or use Z,X,C etc. for specific weaponry selection.
