Koupit Flashback

O hře

20 years after the original game’s launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the most acclaimed franchises in gaming history.

It’s not a reboot. It’s Flashback re-imagined. The original Core-Team revamped their own creation, leveraging the best of today’s technology while remaining true to the classic side-scroller that set the standards of the genre in the 90’s.

Key Features



One of the best adventure-action games ever created re-imagined by its creators. It’s the same team. It’s the same passion. Only this time, they have had much more firepower at their disposal to recreate the legendary classic!

Gorgeous graphics, amazing animations. It’s the Flashback you’ve always dreamed of. True to the original spirit but made a million times better by using modern engines such as Unreal and Havok. The makeover is completely stunning.

It’s all about Gameplay. The team modernized gameplay mechanics, making the game more reactive, offering new features, like gadgets and an experience progression system. But the developers kept the original formula in mind: a fine balance between rolling and shooting, exploring remote space stations and obliterating hostile alien planets.

Bringing back new memories. The story was revamped to speak to 21st century gamers. Most of the cast of the original game is still here – Conrad, the Morphs – but you can expect new characters and a few twists you’re definitely not going to forget… this time.

Uplay? No, I don't. Thanks for ruining this experience for me. Steam, please put up a LARGE disclaimer during checkout if I'm going to NEED secondary malware programs to run a "Steam" game I purchased, thanks.

I played the original of this when I was a young lad and was actually looking for a copy when this popped up on my feed. It's the best sort of trip down memory lane - effectively the same game and mechanic, just updated for new systems. Totally worth it.

I was willing to give this a shot out of fondness for the original, and a hopeful feeling left after watching the trailers, but it just felt sadly lacking.

Visually it has some good touches for game locked to a 2D plane, but it seems the developers mistakenly assumed that better technology/base engines make for better games. The reason why Flashback and other similar 'chunky' platform adventure games worked (like Blackthorne) was actually because of it's limitations. Because you had to be immobile to fire and could only do so from a standing or crouching point, you had a firm grasp of the basics of combat. Because you had to get a short sprint before you jumped to vault over gaps of certain sizes, or you had to be at a certain point underneith a ledge to try grab it, you could gauge the input necessary at a moment's notice. This modern remake removes the limitations and attempts for a more free-flowing experience, with full-rotating aim and more responsive controls, which sound great at first, but it removes a big part of the foundation the adventure was built on : the rules of play. Rules are what define a game's challenge, and if you make them more lax, then there has to be new challenges with a similar feeling of reward. Unfortunately, the floaty feeling from the platforming and the more fluid motion and combat just make it feel watery in comparison.

This game falls into that pit between nostalgic form and new-wave revival. It achieves the strong points of neither, but seems to have accumulated some negatives from both. It's far from a terrible game and appears to be quite polished, but it just lacks any real impact or immediate enjoyment beyond ticking objective boxes.

I was going to review this game but sadly I erased my memory of the experience and stored it in a holocube which I purposefully lost...

I'm guessing it was bad though.

I loved the original. I have many fond memories of it. I loved the soundtrack of the original. This game isn't even worth the effort of shovelling it on my lawn and I'm fairly certain if I did it would kill it. This game isn't necissarily bad if you've never played "Flashback: The Quest for Identity" but if you're seeking the nostalgia of your childhood, this game will ♥♥♥♥ you off very quickly.

The only thing this game has in common with the original is that the levels are very slightly similar and the main character's name is Conrad. The end. The game felt very "dumbed down". There are popups on the hud EVERYWHERE that say, "Go here. You can climb this. Talk to him. There's only one path you can take but we're going to tell you to take it anyway!" Luckily, those can be turned off. I decided to play the game on medium and found out immediately that the difficulty settings were made for console ♥♥♥♥♥. There's a helth bar, light falling damage, enemies attempt to tickle you to death, and healing stations are closer together than Starbucks. They also tried to add an RPG aspect by allowing you to gain experience, level up, and spend points in different skills. In a few ways this is good but mostly makes me ask, "Why the hell would anyone add RPG aspects to a Prince of Persia like?"

The controls feel similar to the original but they added an extra jump button and an arc style aiming system. The controls were definitely made for dual thumbstick controllers and then (horribly) modified for pc. Aiming is done by moving the mouse up and down to adjust angle and then moving the mouse left and right to switch sides. This gets annoying when you're trying to adjust your angle and accidently move your mouse too far to one side, causing Conrad to turn around and take it in the butt. If you have a controller to use with the game then it might not be that bad but mouse and keyboard controls get frustrating.

Bug time! This game contains bugs. There were a few times while aiming that the mouse would become locked in one place and I had to right click furiously to get control back. There are also times when grabing onto a platform would cause Conrad to get stuck and stand in mid air next to the platform. I only encountered this a few times and it did not deter me from the game but then again it never happened during a part where it actually mattered.

Playing this game does bring back warm nostalgic memories in the sense that I want to go dig out my old SNES and play the original game. Overall I feel like someone who played through the original once when it released is attempting to remake the game on age old memories. The only consolation I have is that I purchased this game during a Steam sale and didnt pay full price.
