|Game Guide: Flashback|
Note: Flashback offers 3 difficulty levels: easy, medium and difficult. This gamepath describes the easy level. In the medium and difficult levels, you just face more enemies.2.1 Level 1: The Jungle
2.1.1 Looking for the cartridge
Drop off the first three ledges into the screen below you. On one of the ledges on the left you find a holocube. Read the cube. You receive the message to contact your old friend Ian in New-Washington. Move up one ledge, run to the right and jump the gap. To kill the first guard, who is situated on the ledge below you, draw your gun, drop down and shoot.
Drop onto the next screen, walk left and pick up the stone. Position yourself behind the green “wall”, climb upon the ledge on the next screen and take the credits (10 credits). Return to the screen below you and continue.
To kill the second guard, you should drop onto the same ledge. The guard is now on your left, but the door is still blocking his shots. Jump onto the ledge on your right. The door opens. Draw your gun, turn around and gun him down. Pick up the empty cartridge the guard dropped.
Now you should find an energy generator to load your cartridge. Go down the hole to the bottom right, move to the bottom of the next screen and kill the guard. Then walk to the right. Climb upon the little platform above the deadly green haze and continue. Jump the first electricity charge in the ground. You activate the sensor, so that the elevator moves down one level and stops right above your head. Climb onto the elevator and go towards the energy generator on the right. Insert the cartridge into the energy generator, so that it is charged. Next recharge your shield.2.1.2 The wounded man
Go to the top of the screen, draw your gun, kneel, roll into the next screen and gun down the guard. Climb upon the ledge.
Now activate the sensors in the indicated order to move the elevators. First position yourself on the bottom right sensor. The lift moves from ledge 2 to ledge 3. Then jump over the gap on your left and over the next sensor and climb upon the ledge 2. Jump the left sensor and Activate the far right sensor. The elevator moves from ledge 3 to ledge 2. Walk back, jump the left sensor and climb onto the next ledge (you may also take the elevator). Continue, climb down and talk to the wounded man. Talk to him: “Help me, young man. I’ve been attacked by mutants and I can’t walk. Find my teleporter, I need urgent medical assistance.”2.1.3 The search for the teleporter
Return to the screen on which you found the energy generator. Now journey to the left and insert the cartridge into the cartridge lock next to the gorge. Rays cover the gorge, so that you can continue. Avoid the electricity charges in the ground. The elevator carries you up. Move left.
The teleporter is located on the top left lift. Climb onto the first ledge to move down the lift with the teleporter. Face left and throw your stone. Otherwise, the elevator would move up again once you stept off the sensor. Climb upon the ledge, drop down, take the stone and take the teleporter. Pick up the stone you throw before and take the bottom elevator to the screen beneath you. Draw your gun, kneel and roll off the elevator down the left ledge. Save your game (Press button 1).
Now make a running jump towards the other side. Pull yourself up, jump over the electricity charges and continue to the right. Return to the wounded man and give him the teleporter. The man says: “Thanks, you just saved my life”, and disappears. Pick up the identity card. Move back to the saving device and save your game.2.1.4 Gathering credits
Make again a running jump towards the other side and pull yourself up. Jump over the first electrical charge and lower yourself down the lift shaft. Lower yourself down to the level just above the 2 guards. Draw your gun, jump down, shoot the first guard, turn around and shoot the other. On the top left of the screen you find an energy generator. Recharge your shield.
Move to the right and activate the switch to turn off the deadly green haze. Jump over the sensor - otherwise the haze will reappear - and continue. Another guard is standing beneath you. Throw a stone (he should turn around to the right), draw your gun, drop down and shoot him. Pick up the credits (10) and the stone and walk into the next screen. Climb upon the first ledge and take the key, drop down and pick up the credits (50). Draw your gun, duck down, roll into the next screen and shoot the guard. On the right ledge of the screen you see an energy generator. 500 credits are situated on the ledge above the generator. Don’t touch the sensor next to the generator. How should you avoid the sensors? First climb upon the left ledge. Run to the right, jump onto the platform above and pull yourself up. Now jump to the ledge on the right and take the 500 credits. Leave the screen along the same way.2.1.5 The old man
Move back to the saving device and save your game. Climb down and insert the ID card into the card lock to open the door. Walk through the door, lower yourself down, shoot the guard, walk to the left edge and lower yourself down again (don’t jump). Now you see two guards waiting below you. Move to the ledge above them and throw the stone. The stone will activate the laser gun, so that the guards will be killed. Draw your gun, drop down and roll into the next screen. Avoid the green fluid and continue. Talk to the old man. He says: “To get to New Washington, you have to jump into this hole, but if I were you, I’d use an anti-G belt.” You ask: “Where can I find one?” The old man answers: “Now, I can sell you one: 500 credits.” Buy the anti-gravity belt for 500 credits. A yellow arrow appears on your right. Move to the right and jump into the gap.2.2 Level 2: New Washington

Ian walks toward the seat. Follow him and press button 1 when “seat” appears. Your memory is restored. You see how you discovered that aliens were mixed up with the population, how you were kidnapped, and how you managed to escape. Talk to Ian again.
Ian: “The cost of the ticket is astronomical. The only way for you would be to take part in Cyber Tower”.
Conrad: “Cyber Tower?”
Ian: “Yes, it’s a television game. The winner gets a ticket.”
Conrad: “O.K. Can you supply false papers?”
Ian: “No problem. Go to the bar and ask for Jack. Say I sent you. Oh, by the way... I put the force field you asked me for in your pocket.”
Conrad: “Great. Thank you, Ian. ‘Till the next time...”
Ian: “Good luck. I’ll be in touch when you get to Earth.”
The door on the right opens. Continue.2.2.2 Getting a work permit

Now turn around and move to the right. Finally you meet Jack the forger.
Conrad: “Yes, and as quickly as possible.”
Jack: “1500 credits!”
Jack: “Yeah, I’m taking a big risk here.”
Conrad: “But I don’t have enough...”
Jack: “Go to the Employment Office, you’ll find work there. And come back to me when you’ve got the money.”
Consult the map. The employment office (job centre) is situated in Europa Station. But first you must get a work permit.
Take the metro to Africa Station. Move upwards and talk to the personnel of the Administration Center. The elevator moves down once you talked with the first person. The elevator carries you up.
