Ecco The Tides of Time (SEGA GENESIS) Action-adventure 1994


Ecco II: The Tides of Time is a 1994 action-adventure video game developed by Novotrade International and distributed by Sega for most of Sega's then-supported gaming platforms. Ecco the Dolphin 2 is the second game in the series. The Tides of Time followed on from the original game's plot and included similar gameplay with a few additional improvements.

Gameplay:

The Tides of Time follows in the footsteps of its predecessor. Ecco's main assault is to slam into foes at great speeds, while his sonar is used to converse with other cetaceans, interact with items such as crystal Glyphs, and bring up an area map via echolocation. Ecco can strike adversaries from a distance by combining his charge and sonar. Ecco, like a mammal, must also surface for air at regular intervals.

Following other dolphins through an underwater maze is a new problem, as is a "scavenger hunt" in which Ecco must gather the Asterite's lost globes. Two additional power-ups have also been added. The first is the "Pulsar," which allows Ecco to launch a multi-directional sonar attack against foes throughout the duration of the stage. The second is the "Metasphere," which changes Ecco into various creatures. Level-specific transformations include a bird, a jellyfish, a shark, a school of fish, and a Vortex drone.

A pseudo-3D effect is used in several stages. Ecco must swim across moving rings while avoiding or fighting opponents in these stages. If Ecco misses too many rings or gets too much damage, the player is forced to restart.

Plot:

The Tides of Time picks off where the previous game left off, with Ecco saving his dolphin pod and the Earth from the Vortex invaders. Ecco has since returned to his tranquil life in Earth's seas, still holding the talents bestowed upon him by the ancient life-form known as the Asterite. A strong earthquake triggers an avalanche one day when Ecco is investigating an underwater cave. As Ecco recovers, he discovers that the Asterite's abilities are vanished. His companion dolphins explain that something murdered the Asterite and is now terrorizing the sea creatures.

Despite Ecco's victory over the Vortex, the Vortex Queen survived and pursued him back to Earth, where she murdered the Asterite of Ecco's time and now nests and feeds to re-establish her brood. Ecco is then informed by the Asterite that when he used the Atlantean Time Machine to save his pod, he broke the flow of time in two. One possible future for Earth is a bright, joyous planet populated by flying dolphins, while the other is a lifeless, mechanical world drained by the Vortex. As a consequence, Ecco is known as "the stone that divided the flow of time in two."

Ecco returns to his own time and journeys to the Moray Abyss, where he finds the first two Asterite globes after defeating the huge moray eels. Ecco is assaulted by Vortex drones and sent to the dark future while he explores. The Vortex Future, in contrast to the previous future, is a lifeless planet-spanning machine comprised of water tubes, artificial gravity, and hazardous Vortex animals. Ecco discovers the Asterite's final two globes in a room with a bubble-chained holding mechanism known as the Globe Holder. Ecco retrieves the globes after destroying it and is warped back to his period.

Ecco's old powers are restored, and the Asterite invites all of Ecco's fellow dolphins to aid him in fighting the Vortex. While the dolphins and the Vortex fight in the newly changed Lunar Bay, Ecco dives to the deepest regions and infiltrates the Vortex's New Machine, eventually confronting and seemingly destroying the Vortex Queen.
