Flashback: The Quest for identity was developed by Delphine Software International, and was released in 1992 originally for the Amiga, but the following years ported to platforms such as: PC, SNES, Sega Genesis, and many more.
As an old game, I think Flashback is an important gem of video games for some of its accomplishments. The game managed to be a hit with critiques, and proved to be a success. Then later on was named the best selling French game of all time by Guinness World Records. Now you can take that how ever you want, but the French have made some pretty good games over the years.
The Quest for identity also proved valuable enough to get a sequel in 1995 called Fade to Black. The game also received a remake in 2013, which I don’t think done so well. The original though is simply fun. If you’ve every played Another World or Prince of Persia, and enjoyed them, you will most likely find yourself liking this.
The plot is whats interesting, and what has made me enjoy the game way back when I first played it until now. It features a young man who is an agent, he finds out about a plot to destroy the world by aliens. You find yourself on a journey to try and stop this, but get yourself in many situations along the way.
Flashback managed to pull off something great in its time, and has slowly but surely been forgotten. Except for the few who remember it, and have enjoyed it off the years. If you’re someone who likes old titles and haven’t played this, it would be a worthy game to try and find.
