567th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Midway Games Publisher: Midway Games What a glorious game for Boxing day, right?

447th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Delphine Software Publisher: U.S. Gold Flashback, contradicting the above description, is described by Wikipedia as a “science fiction cinematic platform game”.
