Title Flashback Publisher Delphine (1992) ['Classic Collection - Delphine', Delphine/Kixx (1994)] Game Type Action Adventure Players 1 HD Installable Yes Compatibility All Amigas Submission Dennis Smith Profiled Reviewer Review Delphine took all the best bits from Another World and made them even better. In 1992 Flashback was released to a public eager for AW's sequel, and though it wasn't technically such, it played like one. The graphics were better, the main character had even more and better animation (probably the best animated character in Amiga game history, only recently replicated in OnEscapee), there's more freedom in the level design and so it feels like there's more freedom in the plot (linear though it still is) and your character comes, mercifully, with a rechargable shield effectively giving a replenishable four lives instead of the predecessor's oh-so-frustrating one. The plot of the game involves your character escaping, amnesiac, from incarceration, being shot down over a jungle and having to progress from there first to the City below, to recover his memories, discover an alien plot against humanity and make the money to travel to Earth and warn authorities... Yes, it sounds a touch cheesy but it all meshes together well, providing a fair variety of environments to run, jump, duck, roll and shoot baddies in. With cinematic cut-sequences interlaced in the game-play to add atmosphere and plenty of save-points as well as that blissfully useful (and also very necessary) shield, Delphine could do no wrong. Flashback is still one of the very best platform adventures, if not the best.
