Flashback holds the world record as the best-selling French game of all time. It was advertised as the "CD-ROM game on a cartridge" due to its high-quality graphics and smooth animations, and was eventually re-released as a CD-ROM game with the vector-based cutscenes replaced by 3D-rendered movies. Featuring gameplay similar to Prince of Persia and often confused as the sequel to Another World, Flashback is one of those games you just have to play.

See also Flashback: The Quest for Identity (CD version). This game is also available for 3DO, Amiga, Atari Jaguar, DOS, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Sega CD and SNES. There is also a cross-platform program that let it run on modern-day machines called REminiscence.

Very beautiful game. My LC shows slowsdowns with more than two moving objects, but it's playable.

It seems that mac version is the only version that you can see details of our hero's face (eyes etc.)

I wish I would've finished this game on the mac, but couldn't cause I couldn't find the full version. I ended up playing the SNES version instead. Hella great game.

One of the Best Games Ever on any system, it actually looks better on a Mac than the SNES version
