|Flashback: The Quest for Identity|
- This page is for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version. For other games in the series, see FlashBack.
Flashback: The Quest for Identity is a port of the Sega game Genesis, only coming with serious limitations of some speed, all being a challenge to develop it in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System with limited hardware, his developed house was Delphine Software International and published by U.S Gold (America and Japan) and Sony ImageSoft (Europe and Australia) in 1993.
This port brought very little to change only many graphic limitations such as cinematics that go to a very low frame-rate because the SNES could not give more power, many changes were made to run on the console.
Changes were made in the gameplay, changing the T-shirt in sprite of 'Conrad for a red one, it is not known whether or not it is the original sprite of base but in the other it is under the resolution because the SNES could only run at 256x220 as maximum.
The music did a good job by repeating each melody with its characteristics of each level or situation that the player felt.
John Hancock, Jean Baudlot, and Fabrice Visserot made the music in this version. This port suffered a very strange loss in volume terms due to the fact that the Sony sound chip was almost CD quality that the SNES had.
Rich Douglas would be in charge of arranging and running the music in a synchronized manner with automatization or repetition of melodies.

These recordings were made by GatoVerde95 using SNESX9 to dump it with Cheat Engine, VLC media player and foobar2000 to convert SPC formats to FLAC and then to OGG (Vorbis).
Sony SPC700 and S-DSP to synthesize the music at almost semi-CD quality but with the difference that it uses spectrograms to reproduce the melody, thus achieving that if the game wants it to repeat the same track it can indefinitely (the Genesis can but it is different).
This game uses the console's built-in S-SMP chip.
