About this game

Content Rating: Everyone10+


2142. After fleeing from a space ship but stripped of all memory, the eminent scientist Conrad B. Hart awakens on Titan, a colonised moon of the planet Saturn. His enemies and kidnappers are snapping at his heels. He must find a way back to Earth, defending himself against the dangers he encounters and unravelling an insidious extra-terrestrial plot that threatens the planet… On its 25th anniversary, rediscover this classic, consistently ranked among the best 100 games of all time! It was one of the first games to use motion capture technology for more realistic animations, with backgrounds that were entirely hand-drawn and a gripping science-fiction storyline.

Flashback is a great game that somehow manages to stand the test of time twenty five years later. The option to adjust the difficulty with the new Modern Mode should allow newcomers to ease into the admittedly brutal gameplay.

Flashback on Switch is the definitive edition of a truly special science fiction platform/puzzle solving/shooting video game that already more than proved itself to be a 16-bit classic. If you were too young to play this the first time, this package will give you the best possible way to experience it with current hardware. For veteran gamers, Flashback has lost nothing of what made it special all those years ago. Pass the holocube, please.

Flashback llega a Switch de una forma bastante limpia y que permite disfrutar del título con su esencia original, añadiendo incluso efectos propios de la época original. No es recomendable si lo que buscamos es algo "nuevo", pero sí que resulta una pieza casi obligatoria para todo fan del retro, más aún si disfrutamos del original. Una buena apuesta por las plataformas y la acción de antaño que ahora luce aún mejor en la híbrida de Nintendo.
