Echelon is a space combat simulator with wire-frame graphics. Fly around an alien planet, looking for clues to a "mysterious event" in the planet's past.

The game has a feature that allows people to play without concerning themselves with battle, or turn off the "exploration" and concentrate solely on combat.

C64 version

The Commodore 64 version of Echelon shipped with the "Lip Stik", a headset and microphone that purported to take voice commands, but in reality just acted as a firebutton. It plugged directly into the joystick port.


Unmarked even on the Hint Map were several unusual locations and structures, including a McDonalds, the Golden Gate bridge, and others. They could be blown up, and the bridges could be flown under and through (lengthwise).


The game uses Access' "Real Sound" technlogy - digitized sound through the standard PC speaker.
