Play echoes, achieve zen-like transcendental state

I’m a big fan of shmups, a legacy of a youth spent in arcades. Today’s find is the most recent release from Binary Zoo, Echoes. Take one part asteroids, one part robotron, and one part techno soundtrack, mix with simple, stylized graphics, add a healthy dose of frenzied pacing, and you have echoes. It’s terrific, the best of Binary Zoo’s releases thus far. Check it out – pc only, works with mouse/wasd or joypad, though joypad works best in my opinion.

Note that to get it running I had to muck with Windows DEP (Data Execution Prevention) settings and add Echoes to the exclusion list. Thanks Microsoft, for your arcane, crummy OS.
