Play Flashback with Reminiscence

Flashback on Windows 10.Released in 1992 for the Amiga, Flashback was an instant hit. It was Prince of Persia on steroids and the cinematic scenes pushed the game to another level. Although the game plays just fine with DOSBox, there's also a source port for Windows available called Reminiscence, which allows you to play Flashback on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7. You can also save your games. However, if you would like to hear the music you'll have to get hold of the Amiga sound files (?!). Anyway, this is how you get things going:

  • Download Reminiscence, the Flashback engine (SDL/win32 binary)
  • Extract the downloaded file into an empty folder of choice, for example d:\games\flashback
  • Copy the data folder with al its files from the original game into the folder you've created, in this example you'll end up with d:\games\flashback\data
  • Run the game by double clicking rs.exe
  • If you like to play the game full screen, press ALT and Enter
