About This Game

Life was an adventure for Ecco, the young dolphin. The ocean seemed endless with rolling breakers to race through!

Until one day, all of that changed. A freak whirlpool of air and water tore the life from Ecco’s home leaving Ecco all alone. Now he must fight to stay alive, while traversing the vast ocean in search of clues that will help him save his family and return them to the bay.

I hate this game so much. It is pretty much the ONLY game I have NEVER been able to beat. It is REALLY difficult. If you like to torture yourself and are looking for more reasons to hate dolfins, give it a try, but don't say I didn't warn you. My life will be that much more complete whenever I manage to beat this game, and I WILL be throwing a massive party, no joke.

One of the scariest games I've ever played, I'm not sure if its the creepy ambient music, or whatever it is, but it ranks in the top 3 of scary games for me.

The Mega Drive version had some real sound issues compared to the PC one, which had REALLY good music. But anyway, I really loved this game as a kid, but I haven't played it much since. I... still recommend it.

Very confusing game. You're a dolphin I guess? And you can swim slow or swim fast? And you die really easily? Not recommended unless you are a fan of dolphins, and why would you be?
