16-bit sci-fi classic sequel Flashback 2 shows off its leafy parts in new trailer

Flashback, the classic 16-bit sci-fi platformer from Delphine Software, is, as you probably already know, getting a sequel before the end of 2023, some 31 years after its original release. And new developer Microids has now offered a fresh look at Flashback 2’s action – specifically the jungle-y bits – in a new trailer as it prepares for a November release.

The original Flashback, which arrived to much acclaim back in 1992 – when everything was still in black and white, and computers were powered by magic – followed the far-flung future adventures of agent Conrad B.
