Game description

20 years after the original game’s launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the most acclaimed franchises in gaming history.

It’s not a reboot. It’s Flashback re-imagined. The original Core-Team revamped their own creation, leveraging the best of today’s technology while remaining true to the classic side-scroller that set the standards of the genre in the 90’s. 

Key Features:

  • One of the best adventure-action games ever created re-imagined by its creators. It’s the same team. It’s the same passion. Only this time, they have had much more firepower at their disposal to recreate the legendary classic!

  • Gorgeous graphics, amazing animations. It’s the Flashback you’ve always dreamed of. True to the original spirit but made a million times better by using modern engines such as Unreal and Havok. The makeover is completely stunning.

  • It’s all about Gameplay. The team modernized gameplay mechanics, making the game more reactive, offering new features, like gadgets and an experience progression system. But the developers kept the original formula in mind: a fine balance between rolling and shooting, exploring remote space stations and obliterating hostile alien planets.

  • Bringing back new memories. The story was revamped to speak to 21st century gamers. Most of the cast of the original game is still here – Conrad, the Morphs – but you can expect new characters and a few twists you’re definitely not going to forget... this time.

Reviews for Flashback

I was expecting something better.


When I heard about Flashback's remake, my excitement was enormous, especially since Another World was previously perfectly ported in FullHD. My joy did not last long when it turned out that the new version of Flashback is a butchered 2.5D platformer, made with the dated Unreal Engine 3 engine. I must say I had more fun playing the original game and that's what I recommend. I was disappointed.



I never played the original so I can't compare this remake to it. However, I think this game was just okay. The graphics were not very good, but they weren't bad. The camera is zoomed out a bit much and the game didn't feel very detailed. It is a very dark game with a lot of blur. Some levels feel way too long, others are too fast. It's a very unevenly paced game. The vehicle segments are horrible and control even worse. The side scrolling segments are decent, but nothing to write home about. The story I don't even remember. The controls are fine but take some getting used to. The game doesn't have any glitches and never crashed, so it's very stable in that respect. It feels unfinished though. The game literally ends after you kill the final boss. It's very abrupt and just feels like the game is incomplete. There's a lot of secrets but nothing to unlock as far as I remember so it's not worth exploring much more than you have to. Overall, it's not a bad game because I've played many that are far worse, but it's hard to recommend this game to anyone because of how average it is. There's nothing really amazing that happens in this game that you would want to tell others about to get them hyped. If you liked the original game, it's worth playing. Otherwise, wait for a sale if you have even the slightest interest in this game.

Get over yourself, it's a remake Not a reboot.


Wow, 40? Don't let the other review scare you off. This is a remake, it just actually makes sense this time around. A bit easier than the original due to the control timing not being as much of an issue as we all remember old console games revolved around. DRM is inevitable in today's world, so deal with it or stop playing video games. The game is short but sweet. I would give it an 80, but have to go full bore since the other reviewer was absolutely trolling.

Not worth your time


It's a 're-imagined' of an almost two decades old game with the same name which can be considered as cult classic. That being said, aside from the graphical upgrade, the game doesn't have a single redeeming feature that makes it special and superior from the original. The controls are awkward, the audio and the voice acting are terrible and you have to deal with Uplay to boot. I know the majority of PC gamers are against using it. Anyway, this game is certainly not worth your time. Seek the original version instead.
