Flashback: The Quest for Identity

Delphine Software Interactive, 1993

Flashback is a sequel to Delphine Software's Another World. The year is 2142 and you play as Conrad, who crashes his flying bike in a jungle while escaping his enemies. After a short while you awaken in the jungle only to find out that you don't remember a thing and have no memory of who you are or why you are there.  As you make your way to a nearby city you begin to recover, realizing that you are the only person who has the facts about the impending alien invasion of Earth, your home planet.  You must somehow make yourself recall the vital details of the plan, make enough money to buy your passage to Earth and warn your people before it's too late. Are you up to the challenge?

Flashback is fully packed with nice graphics, superior character animation, superb sounds and tons of atmospheres, making this title a perfect mixture of action and adventure. The keyboard controls are very easy to handle and players don't find any difficulties getting used to them.
