Re: Flashback

I've always held Flashback in fairly high regard. It's like a more puzzle and story oriented Prince of Persia, with guns. I'm not sure how much replay value it has though, as despite it making a big impression on me in my younger years, I never went back to complete it in more recent times. The 3DO ...

I highly doubt it. If it was available at retail, even if only in small numbers, we would known about it a long time ago.

It may very well have been me. I did a casual play/lazy review of it a few years back using the 3D control pad. I hadn't played it seriously in a while at the time though. I did so more recently and did not have any fun at all.

Re: Sega Saturn freak out.

I had a similar thing happen back in the day except it occurred with every game immediately. I called SEGA and tech support advised to unplug the system and remove the battery for a few minutes. Doing that cleared the issue. In this case though it sounds like a disc issue.

Re: Trip'd vs. Flopon the Space Mutant vs. Furopon World

1. Flopon the Space Mutant is the first game.

2. Flopon the Space Mutant 2 is the sequel. Released in the US as Trip'd. Also on Short Warp.

3. Flopon World is a mini game compilation where its main highlight is a proto-shmup (Galaga style shooter).

Re: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

That's really cool to hear. The Jag version's animation isn't any better than any other, but it does have the benefit of having a higher color count than the Genesis/CD or SNES versions of the game. It's still a solid version. Regardless of which one you play though the game has excellent animation.

Does the Catbox offer compatibility for straight system link gameplay, ala the Jaglink (i.e., one console to one console)?
