When it comes to Platformers for mobile, people don’t think twice about two titles that were once a big, well-sought-after trend: Prince of Persia and Another World. But perhaps, from now on they will also know the 3rd product after Flashback is released on the mobile platform. In 1992, this game has won the most attractive “iconic action game”. However, it will not be free, the developer has set a price of 4.99 Dollars for each download on Google Play or Appstore. But right in this article, you will not need to pay anything to be able to own this great game.
Flashback Mobile is set in the future in 2142, revolving around a young scientist named Conrad B. Hart. He was kidnapped to the Titan, Mars. These aliens have erased all memories to prevent him from affecting the bad plans they are about to make with the Earth. Although Conrad didn’t have a memory of himself, he seemed to feel the unusual things that were going on. He refuses to cooperate and is pursued by the enemy. While battling aliens to protect their lives, Conrad had to find a way to stop the destruction plan they were imposing. With courage, can he stop bad things and find memories to return to his family?
Beginning the journey to save the Earth, players will role-play as Conrad’s character and explore the mysteries that are taking place in the continent of Titan. Perhaps when watching the first trailer released by SFL Interactive, players also partly guessed its gameplay and possible dangers. In general, with actions such as climbing, sitting or using means of transportation such as submarines, elevators, players can move to anywhere to find useful information, which can get Conrad out of here. However, dangerous elements will constantly appear everywhere, including guards, some monsters and even bombs or traps. Players need to be very observant to detect and actively avoid. The system provides Conrad with a gun to protect himself and it will be an omen for the deaths of the enemies that prevent him from returning to his family. It can be seen that it is not difficult to find an exit to Earth, but the conspiracy has not been clarified yet, this game seems to have no meaning anymore.
The game has added the rewind feature, in case of being accidentally killed, the player can use it to return to a previous time to revive. With this, the dangers can be identified for players to avoid it, or sometimes during the process of deciphering a certain mystery but accidentally being killed. However, it is not possible to choose a specific time to rewind but it depends on each stage. Regarding the control mechanism, it is designed to be suitable for touch devices. Players just need to slide up the screen to perform the corresponding actions, climb the terrain, use the equipment, or attack the enemy.
Sometimes, Flashback Mobile is considered an excellent movie, in the present fiction, can happen in the future with unique 2D graphics. Designers for this game spent a lot of time and effort to hand-draw all the scenes and characters. Then it is processed by machine and applies some technology to get the perfect picture as the player is experiencing. The choice of colors is also very reasonable, creating a high artistic space. I think that, in addition to the unique features, the graphics have contributed a great part to the success of this game, and it deserves an excellent rating. Compared to previous versions, it was improved using Post-FX graphics filters, and the sound system was completely replaced. More vivid, better quality than words I can describe.
Mobile Flashbackis released, marking the strong return of a nearly 30-year-old game. It is perfectly reproduced on the mobile platform with simple gameplay and extremely beautiful graphics. Compared to the version released on the PC or Console platform, Mobile Flashback proved not inferior in any aspect. It is even more convenient when players can experience this game anywhere without a network connection.
