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.

Reminds me of Worms: Armageddon, with a Metal Slug mixed in a bit. Graphics were good, and the final boss took me 4 tries to beat. The other medals are a tad tough to get, but otherwise, very good game you four made. It's been awhile since I've seen any of Rina-chan's works, and I'm pretty sure everyone knows who she voiced. Overall, 11/10 is my final vote.

It was good but really laggy(not blaming you my connection is bad) but the dialogue was reallly slow and i hate skipping it for fear of missing something in the plot..i can tell you put alot of time into this game. The only real complaint is the movement more specificly the running and the hops i hold down shift and either i walk normaly or i don't move at all and the hops work once in a great while. other then that awesome game can't wait for a sequel.

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.
