Ecco the Dolphin

Somewhere there is a giant whale named Big Blue. He lives in a place called the Endless Sea. He is the true king of the ocean. He is friendly and wise, and most of all, BIG. He is the biggest animal the world has ever known!

Ecco the Dolphin heard that to find Big Blue, you have to open the Crystal Doors. These are strange jewels, called Glyphs, that are the doors to the oceans beyond home.

Ecco and his two ocean friends Tara, the young orca, and Kitnee, the baby bottlenose dolphin, are very playful. They are also curious. They are ready to search for the wise, friendly giant, Big Blue.

They found out that the Crystal Doors will open if they perform a task for each Crystal. Some Crystal Doors want them to find lost friends or misplaced toys. Others want them to play tag. Still other Crystal Doors want to hear music.

When the Crystal Doors get their wish from Ecco and his friends, they open up to another part of the ocean, a little closer to the Endless Sea and Big Blue.

Each ocean is a wonderful playground. Rays skim through the water. Seahorses wait to see you. The stonefish look just like rocks, and the jellyfish don't really look like jelly. Search for seals, squids, and crawly crabs. You might even swim into an octopus or a friendly shark!

There are many Crystal Doors to open before you can meet the biggest whale in the world. But the real fun is getting there!

A Vast Sea of Discovery...and Danger!

Life was an adventure for Ecco, the young dolphin. The ocean seemed endless, with rolling breakers to race through! At high speed, Ecco could burst through the waves, leaping through the air - almost flying! Then, with a deep gulp of breath, Ecco would plunge down into the blue depths, where Shelled Ones hid in the coral crannies on the ocean floor.
Ecco knew that dolphins couldn't breathe underwater. Fish and coral stayed below the waves. But Ecco's kind needed air. This was a puzzle, and Ecco wanted to learn the answer.

The ocean was full of songs. There were easy ones that came to Ecco naturally. These were the songs for calling dolphins and other singers of the watery world. There were new songs that took time to learn. These songs could open the Shelled Ones and scare off the Hungry Ones who roamed near the dolphins' home. And then there were songs about just being alive and free!
The dolphins also had sad songs about stinging jellyfish, swift currents and rocky walls that trapped singers deep underwater. But the best ones were the proud, powerful songs about teeming schools of fish that filled the oceans and were good to eat, and about submerged, air-filled caves where a smart dolphin could breathe.

Five bright marks shone on Ecco's sleek head. No other dolphin had these silvery spots. When the air was dark, the family would sing that Ecco's markings matched five shining points far up in the sky. The song said that Ecco was special, a favorite of the ocean. Or maybe, it went on, the markings were just for looks, the way some fish had spots.
But the broad sky of the dry side also held a hidden terror. One day it attacked, without warning - a huge gust of swirling wind like a churning whirlpool of air and water. It tore all life from Ecco's Home Bay. Singers and Shelled Ones and even the small fish were ripped, helpless, twisting in fright, into the high nothingness beyond. And then they vanished!

Only Ecco remained. In the flash of one leap, Ecco's safe home, full of life and song, had become strange and silent. Everything had changed.

Now Ecco must fight to stay alive. Deadly hazards fill the wide oceans outside, but Ecco must find the lost dolphin pod. From the rip tides of the southern gulfs to the frozen chill of northern seas, Ecco must search through sunken worlds where razor teeth and poison stingers lurk in the dark depths.

Ecco, all alone, faces a treacherous quest to save the family. Only by fighting to survive can Ecco rescue the singers of the sea, and end a disaster that threatens the entire world.
--From the Sega Genesis Ecco the Dolphin instruction manual.

An outstanding game, Ecco the Dolphin combines excellent graphics, great action, and lots of fun and interesting puzzles to solve, as you help Ecco try to save his family and friends.

Ecco: The Tides of Time Sega Genesis Screenshot 1
Ecco: The Tides of Time (Sega Genesis)
After defeating Vortex and returning home with his family, Ecco resumed his happy-go-lucky life in the open ocean, but little did he know what was in store for him. In ECCO: The Tides of Time, Vortex has returned and has started another assault on the creatures of the sea. Now, it's up to Ecco and Trellia, a dolphin from the future, to once again stand (or swim) up to the powers of evil and put a stop to Vortex once and for all. Through 40 levels of deep-sea exploration, you'll have your hands full as you face challenging puzzles and various creatures of the deep. But this time you have the ability to temporarily morph into another animal that will let you get past certain obstacles you otherwise couldn't get around. You'll be able to change into a ferocious shark, take to the skies as a seagull, or avoid danger all together as a jellyfish. Once again, it's up to Ecco to save the Earth from pending doom.
