|The year is 2142. You play as Conrad B. Hart, a man who has lost his memory.
After barely escaping from hostile aliens, Conrad's bike crashes on an unknown planet.
Conrad finds himself in the jungle, and from now on his quest for survival and his
lost identity begins. During one of his investigations, Conrad discovers a plot to
take over Earth involving aliens called Morphs who disguise themselves as government
officials. "Flashback" is a platform action adventure. Your navigate
Conrad over the platforms, performing various moves. You can simply jump or do a
longer run-and-jump, run, climb, hang off ledges, and pick up objects lying on the
ground. To defend yourself, you shoot enemies with your gun and also use various
objects (such as stones) to harm or to distract them. It features fully hand-drawn
backdrops and for its time remarkably fluid rotoscoped animation of walking, running
and jumping movements, reminiscent of Prince of Persia. Later a version on CD-ROM was
released with new cinematic scenes, better animation between levels and added voice
actors to the character's dialogue. On Dec 4/2018, Flashback: 25th Anniversary was released. A refreshed version based on the SNES graphics and also offers a new Modern mode featuring enhanced graphics, remastered sound effects, and a Rewind option (allows to move back), and a tutorial.
