Anybody remember this 1992 classic?   Awesome game.  You can play it online through an Active-X enabled browser:

Good memories.

I feel really old all of a sudden. Now there's a gaming classic.

Have to give it a try on a not-so-restricted PC when I get home.

I got it running, but didn't try to play.  I'll give it some time later.  I have to write a stoopid grant proposal.   :?

You can also play Pirates (but it's copy protected, so you need a manual):

So many old games!  There are hundreds more...

i remember thinking the graphics were amazing on Flashback.  The way Conner would cut when you tried to run in the opposite direction.

I thought Flashback was an entirely different game property.

Flashback is not a sequel to Out of this World (aka Another World).  Heart of the Alien is the sequel.  It was from the point of view of the alien guy in OotW.  If you bought it for SegaCD you got both games on one disc (Heart of the Alien: Out of this World Parts I & II).

The sequel to Flashback is Fade to Black.

All are great games.

And while I liked Deja Vu I absolutely LOVED Shadowgate.

Flashback was developed by the same company as Out of this World, it's more thought of as a sequel in spirit.

I played the hell out of DC on my sister's Mac way back when. Loved that game. Throwing rocks at bats with my 360 degree spinny-arm.

I loved Out of This World, played it on a 233 MMX back in the day.

The coolest thing about the game was that you had to figure everything out on your own, including how the gun worked.

yeah, I died a few times before realizing that the game had already started.

I loved the gun battles in the game, always trying to set up a shield before they blasted you...the coliseum battle was cool too...

It would be awesome if they had the sequel on there too....
