    Very odd indeed.... But it looks like a game that you don't need to read text so much...

    FlashBack was very famous...on the PC SNES and Genesis.. the graphics where advanced for its time..
    I forgot the plot ..somethin about amnesia and an ugly alien.

    Ahh this brings back some memories.
    I played this game on the Amiga.
    Later I played some sequel called black hole or something like that, it was a game on PSX.

    Flashback was a pretty awesome game in its day... i didn't even know that this one was in development, but it's probably well worth a try...

    Flashback was an amazing game for me on SNES, lost hrs and hrs to it.

    A great story with nice graphics for it's time, kept me occupied until Super Metroid was released.

    We don't ususally post BETAs unless it was unknown at the time the ROM was actually a BETA, however this one was I thought deserved a post, as I didn't even know there was a Flashback game coming to GBA.
    Can't wait for the full version!

    Is this something like a shooter? Something like CT Special Forces?

    It's more an adventure.
    It's not like CT Special Forces, running brainless and shoot stuff.
    This game needs some real brain cracking on some parts of it and a good planning on some moves.
    A good example of how this game is like would be Prince of Persia (also an old game I played on Amiga)
    Making the perfect jump and hope you will not die by miss placing it.
    Believe me if you planned you perfect action by using non weapon and still kill both enemies you feel really good.

    Remember the trick with the trowing of stones or hanging down and get up fast so that 2 enemies shoot each other.
    No lets hope they will also bring Another World to GBA (yes I know another port) that game was almost the same but I found it way better then Flashback. [​IMG]

    i belive that game on psx is called Fade To Black (also on pc) this was the sequal to Flashback, but Fade To Black was the game that took the series to the 3d world. Is this the same game as the snes? it dont look like it & the snes version is called Flashback: Quest for Idenity not Flashback Legend, maybe theres some difference, a mini sequal or side story? the game is 24MB so since this is beta i think that change later on to 32MB so it looks like in nearly playable to the end (maybe the other langageus will cut it to 32MB?)

    OH SHIT! I had this game for Sega CD...it r0x0r'd. I used to play it all the time. I left my ezf-advance's linker at my apartment. I'm on vacation until the 22nd. Oh well, I guess I'll have to play it via emu until I get back...
