Amiga Tribute: Flashback by LukeTheRipper Amiga Tribute: Flashback by LukeTheRipper
Conrad B. Hart from Flashback.


Part 8/24 of my Amiga tribute project >3

This time it's one of the well known Amiga classic, namely Flashback: The Quest for Identity
This oldie was ported to almost each and every available system, with the only exceptions being handheld ones like Gameboy XD and gained quite a number of fans along the way, though the original game was released for the Amiga, two years before being ported to the more popular systems such as SNES or Genesis.
For one, this game was one of the best action-adventure title of it's time, or more specifically an "cinematic platformer" as these were called. For those unfamiliar with the term, think Another World (made by the same company), the very first Prince of Persia game or Heart of Darkness, heh, or for the younger gamer's, think Abe's Odyssee/Exodus or Limbo. These might be pretty much forgotten nowdays, as 3D action-adventure games pretty much stole the market, but back in the days these sure were something ^^
On the flipside, if games like Tomb Raider or Uncharted were made back then, they would probably look and play just like this ;3
And I'm not kidding, this title was breathtaking in all aspects, the story, the graphics, the animation, the overall gameplay and feel was something really remarkable at that time (yes, these graphics were stunning back then, problem?). So yeah, the action packed story of agent Conrad B. Hart in his quest to regain his erased memory while the Earth is yet again threatened by an invasion is one hell of a memorable title.
Also worth noting is that the guys who worked on this title back then, now work for the ever so marvellous UbiSoft.And guess what, they're making a remake - www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsL1E4… www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEvRET… so while other HD remixes of Amiga titles such as the Alien Breed trilogy or Superfrog might ended up pretty flat, this one sure looks great so far.

And yes, the new version of Conrad does look better and has more details and stuff, but since this is an Amiga tribute, I wanted to draw the original Conrad, even if his design is simple and plain ;3


Other parts of the project - Shadow Of The Beast, Shadow Fighter, Zool, The Chaos Engine, Superfrog, Skeleton Krew, The Speris Legacy, Flashback, Agony, Brutal: Paws of Fury, Fightin' Spirit, Ruff 'N' Tumble, SwitchBlade, Lionheart, The Lost Vikings, Brian The Lion, Wolfchild, Gods, Entity, Franko: The Crazy Revenge, Hired Guns, Turrican, The Killing Game Show, Yo! Joe!

To each their own ^^ hehe, but it's nice to know someone who still remembers the genre and games such as Flashback and Blackthorne which were prime examples of it ^^

And as far as I know, the Flashback remake is already available on PSN, I just can't afford it right now |3

They are my favs all the time ,I like Blackthorne more cause I played first 

I still have my Super Nintendo ,and I find a awesome way to increass lifespan of Snes 

In my contry its rare and expenssive find any cartridger so I use a Everdrive called Super Ufo Pro 8 ,did you ever heard this before ?

So with this everdrive I can download the roms put in this everdrive cartridger and play in Snes ! No emulation is the real game

It's a useful gadget, I agree, but nothing beats pleaying on the original cartridge or CD, uit just feels more complete |3

Well, I never had a SNES, I was lucky to at least get a NES |D

Aż nostalgia wróciła, kiedy ujrzałam twoją kolekcję. :love: Nie mniej, ta gra była naprawdę niesamowita. Jedna z gier, gdzie faktycznie, historia wręcz wciągała człowieka. :D

Hehe,no jeszcze trochę tego będzie,szczególnie, że nie jestem jeszcze nawet w połowie XD

Amiga była kultowa głównie u nas, ponieważ nie doszły do nas takie frykasy jak konsole Nintendo i Segi, a i z Ruskimi podróbami (Pegasus) było dość ciężko, no ale miło słyszeć, że ktoś tak bardzo się cieszy z takiego Amigowego projektu ^^

Obecnie co dzień zaglądam i patrzę czy nowe obrazki doszły z tego projektu. :D
Mało w sumie osób takie rzeczy rysuje. Bardziej wolą coś popularniejszego, ale za to Amiga też ma rzeszę swoich fanów. ^ ^

Jeśli chodzi o konsole, to miałam styczność z Segą Saturn, ale był taki problem z nią, iż były strasznie drogie gry, po 200 zł sztuka. Dlatego pamiętam, że jako dzieciak miałam jedną grę. :XD: Głównie to nad Amigą siedziałam.
I bardzo się cieszę z tego projektu, bo Twój sposób przedstawienia jest imponujący. :D

Hehe, miło słyszeć, że aż tak się spodobało XD

Arty Amigowe, przynajmniej te do projektu, wrzucam po jednym na miesiąc (głównie dlatego, że mam też pełno innych artów do zrobienia).

Zaś co do"sposobu przedstawienia", to jest to mój standardowy styl rysowania, tak wię prawie każdy mój art jest nim rysowany ^^

Hehe, i jeśli aż tak bardzo lubisz Amigę,to założyłem na DA grupę poświęconą temu systemowi - #Amiga-Game-Art więc zawsze możesz się do niej zapisać ^^

Proszę bardzo :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITcwL9… racja, Flashback to genialna gra, mi bardzo podobał się świat w którym się działa i historia. Jedna z niewielu gier, jeśli nie jedyna która miała całkiem fajny UP - urząd pracy :) Niedawno widziałem remake, przyznaję się że się zawiodłem, nie jest źle, ale nie jest też tak jak bym chciał.

Tya, ogólnie zbyt łatwo było tam zginąc XD
Ale w tej grze było cos, co nigdy nie pozwalało mi jej odłożyć choćbym nie wiem jak często ginął |D

Wprawdzie nigdy nie ukończyłem całej, ale coś tam jednak przeszedłem ^^
