Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Ecco the Dolphin series (3 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Novotrade
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             Platform
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          A series of platform games concerning a talented dolphin
                  and the underwater habitat that he strives to protect
                  from various and sundry threats.

IMPRESSIONS:      A remake of an old gaming classic, this has spectacular
                  graphics and animation.  Now if weren't for those
                  frustratingly difficult puzzles, it would be a classic
                  all over again.  Still, it's an original approach to
                  the proven platform formula.  Spawned two sequels that
                  are both as eye-catching and difficult as the original.

VARIATIONS:       Ecco the Dolphin (1993, Ecco is separated from his family
                    by a freak storm and spends the next 20 or so levels
                    trying to save them and the rest of his fellow dolphins
                    from harm)
                  Ecco 2 - The Tides of Time (1994, Ecco must save all of
                    the world's sealife from a futuristic threat - adds the
                    ability for Ecco to morph into other sea creatures)
                  Ecco Jr. (1995, tooled for a younger mindset, casts you
                    as Ecco's son who along with his friends goes in search
                    of the old blue whale)

It's an amazing game! Haunting music, lovely graphics, but it's impossible! I'm stuck on the 4th level! I have competed it by cheating though.

EGM's Quarterman had discussed a game involving a Dolphin long before Ecco was released. No one could imagine how the game would play. I thought Sega did a very inovative job with the game controls.

The graphics are kinda nice, especially in Ecco 2. The games are very long and hard. Sometimes frustrating. The exploration and puzzle solving kept me stuck playing them until they were done. For some reason, it's fun as heck to just swim around and do a few jumps and flips for a while. Cool game, but very difficult. I could never beat the game without the cheat code though, and if you use the code it tells you at the end of the game to try again without cheating. :(

I love this game....
Yeah it's hard at times, but the graphics and sound(on sega cd) kick ass and take names. One of those rare treats that's a NEW idea for once! only thing is whats up with the "Thump" noise when you eat fish?

Ecco the Dolphin, one of my favorites on the Sega Genesis... I simply love challenging games, and Ecco was in those days a real challenge! I guess the puzzles weren't even the toughest part, but trying to translate English into my language, German, without ever having learned English at all was a real challenge ;)

On concept alone, it almost makes it to the finishing line... A "Swim em' up" perhaps?

A haunting soundtrack and fantastic sound effects combine with some beautiful artwork (featuring one of the most varied and colourful palettes on the gen') to create a totally unique atmosphere.
It's difficult, dispite having an unlimited supply of lives, some levels feel like a chore to complete. The huge emphasis on exploration may put some people off and the slow pacing means some won't witness the spectacular final showdown.

I really loved the game Ecco 2; the puzzles are great and very different of the puzzles of the 1st game (the part that I like most is the part of rebuilding Asterite – hard, but cool). I finished the game, but I have 3 questions: 1. What are that strange blue creatures swimming around at City of Forever? I saw one of them after defeating Vortex Queen, but I didn’t understand that… 2. What happens with Ecco when he destroys (or tries to destroy) the time machine, at the final of this same level? 3. What the hell serves that secret password that appears at the final of the game?! (Of course I tried to use it, but it isn’t work… Damn it…) Please try to give the answers. Thanks.
