XBLA Today: Flashback


Back in 1992, the sci-fi platformer Flashback won over legions of fans due to its stylish graphics and fantastic gameplay. Paul Cuisset, one of the original developers behind the game, enlisted his new team at VectorCell to produce a high definition remake of Flashback and the resulting game is now available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade. Priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), the Flashback remake is the latest addition to Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade promotion.

Take on the role of Conrad B. Hart of the G.B.I. and uncover a vast and deadly alien conspiracy that threatens everything it means to be human. But before you can save the human race you must rediscover who you are, as you desperately search for the missing data files containing your memory to piece the puzzle together. 20 years after the original game’s launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the best adventure-action games ever created. It’s Flashback re-imagined by its creators.

Flashback will also be available on PC download services and the PlayStation Store later this Fall.
