Original Thread: Pufferfish are jerks. Let's Play Ecco the Dolphin! [VLP]




Ecco the Dolphin was a game released by Novatrade, now Appolosa, in 1992. In it, you follow the adventures of a dolphin as he swims through a peaceful ocean, meeting all of the denizens of the sea. Hi there random creature!

Did I mention the impossible hardness of the game? The nightmarish images that have this seemingly innocent game popping up on "Games that scared you" lists all over the Internet? The fact you control a massive dolphin with a hitbot seemingly intent on getting you stuck and chain hit on everything in sight? The fact that its hard as heck to complete this game without cheating?

This is a children's game. Like all classic Genesis games. So get ready to tear through sharks, stingrays, jellyfish and whatever else stands in Ecco's way as he seeks the end of his quest to find out what happened to his family and why a massive storm suddenly sucked all of the life away from his home

I, Mecheon, shall lead you on this quest to kick ass, save the ocean, and maybe rescue some other dolphins. I have played this game for years, and I'm ready to show off at it. And because I'm an arrogant fool, convinced of his own superiority, I'm going to play the longest version of this game, just because

This game was released on the Mega CD and the Genesis. On the Genesis, there were 2 versions released: American and Japanese. I'm playing the Mega CD one, with new music, new levels, new tileset, and a few gameplay changes for the better

And more pufferfish. Can't forget the pufferfish
