FLASHBACK is a 2D platform action-adventure single player game, with
realistic animations. Struck with amnesia, Conrad B. Hart a young scientist, future member of the Bureau
of Galactic Investigation, wakes up in the heart of a hostile jungle. He finds a holocube which fell from his pocket.
It contains a recorded message from himself, telling him to meet his friend Ian in New Washington. Conrad then goes off on an adventure
that finds him in the heart of an interplanetary plot where aliens, called Morphs, have infiltrated the population. The search for his identity turns into a quest for survival and
safeguarding the planet.
The character of Conrad B. Hart can jump up and down, crouch, roll, use items from his inventory, or pull out his pistol to take a more cautious approach. The situations encountered in the game can be approached in various ways, depending on whether the player chooses direct confrontation or diversion and the element of surprise.
After its release in 1992, FLASHBACK is referenced in the Guinness Book (1996) as the most sold French video game in the world at the time. Praised many times, it remains a reference for an entire generation and is often referred to as a source of inspiration for contemporary story-telling games.
