Although it was rumored that the ST version was ready, up'n'running, it didn't saw the light of the day, because the ST market was "dying" :(

Shame. Great game. I was playing it the other night on an A1200.

Cheers George.

I didn't think the Jag version was that bad. Sure, they didn't spruce it up for the Jag, but I wasn't really expecting them to. It's still a fun game to play, and have yet to really see a "horrible" port of it. I do think it's too bad that it never made it to the ST, though. :(

I didn't either, but I never had a Megadrive/Genesis. I was too jealous of watching my friend play it on his Amiga, so I wanted to get it for an Atari. :)

Me too! Flashback on the Megadrive was a great port actually. It had great sound and probabaly some of hte best graphics I've evre seen in a Megadrive. I heard about the ST port and would have loved to have seen it happen. I did actually see some screenshots of it at one point somewhere.

The better release are on PC, full animations and movies, better graphics, quickly swap on two screens... I haven't play on Jag or other lost cd releases like cd32 but i think there is just add voices or something like that :?

Well, I played the Jaguar version last night. It is lovely. A bit like the Amiga version but has some added bits. The menu screen is really cool...

I've played it on various formats (and completed it)...

In my opinion (and sad to say on an Atari forum) the Amiga was the best I played. Graphcs, sound and music were amazing...

Glad I get my A600 tomorrow - lol - can't complain for £1.21...

I've check all the releases except the 3do, you can find the french review here :

http://largolgd.free.fr/games/flashback/flashback.htm

The better release are the PC version. Best graphics, More quickly, all animations...

Amiga is more poor like Genesis or Snes, Jaguar is the better after PC.

The most important problem on many release is a long black screen inside two pics, on PC, it is very quickly like an horizontal fullscreen :)

I have played Flashback on the Amiga before - gorgeous game. I too own the Megadrive version which isn't bad at all. As everyone has said, an ST version would be nice. Has anyone tried to contact the software house involved in its production to query the ST version?

I used to play it all time on my mate's A1200. As soon as I got my first PC it was one of the first games I got. It was great to have game that played better than an Amiga game. It wasn't until Doom came out that I got most of mates to ditch their PCs.
