Flashback - The Quest for Identity
« on: January 03, 2008, 07:52:57 PM »
Why is there no maps for this great game? It is easy to map and the levels look nice, so I humbly request it.



Hint: If you want savestates/screenshots for most of the locations, you could use some existing emulator-assisted speedrun to easily access them.



Thank you, see you!

Looks like Will Mallia's taken upon your request...

Keep in mind that there are about 6479 different versions of this game.

But I suppose the levels are mostly the same for all the different versions, right?

The Amiga version is the original. REminiscence is a modern engine for the DOS data files, supporting savestates and life cheats, which might be useful for mapping.

Thanks for sharing this with us! I've been meaning to play the game again, but the later levels can be really brutal. Oh, and I'm a big savestate whore :)

The game is completely mapped.



EDIT: Will Mallia originally said he would "do[] more requests similar to Flashback", but has now said he won't be doing the other versions of Flashback.  So if you wanted/needed a different version, you'd have to ask someone else...
