Ecco the Dolphin


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Play like a real dolphin using sonar, catching air and singing as you explore the beautiful deep sea.

“Ecco the Dolphin is a great game and it’s fantastic to see that SEGA’s emulation has been fixed up, allowing you to experience without any unfortunate hiccups.” –

“Ecco the Dolphin is just as much of a classic as the other games Sega has released, and really should be played by anyone who considers themselves a gamer who hasn't yet.” –

After a mysterious storm, Ecco’s family disappeared – help him search his vast ocean home for them. Dart through the deep sea, catch air with playful flips for oxygen and use sonar to get messages from undersea creatures and crystal glyphs.

Explore over 25 beautiful levels to unravel the cause of a mysterious storm and rescue Ecco’s pod.

Sing to communicate with other sea animals, uncover hidden paths and attack dangerous sea lurkers.

Customer Reviews

Two things that need fixing:

The dashing sound effect is ear-splitting and sounds nothing like the original game. Is this an audio engine bug or did someone actually find it tolerable when testing this version? It's inexcusable: fix it.

Also, the controls really need some customization options. The apps that have this feature are so much more playable. Also, the d-pad is too inflexible and needs my thumb to actually be precisely on the direction I want to press. On a touch screen, this concept does not work.


It's great that you can get the original Ecco on your iOS device. The controls are a bit difficult, though. Maybe add an analog stick. Next add Defender of the Future! I would buy it instantly!

Avoid at all costs!!

I thought this game would be interesting and fun...and I knew it had a reputation for being difficult... and it is all these. However, when you do figure out how to get around obstacles you still have to deal with the AWFUL controls which can lead to cheap deaths and you having to start the level again!! AVOID THIS GAME...there are other thinking man's games better than this piece of rubbish!!
