Flashback is out!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flashback_(video_game)

"Take yourself back to the early '90s in the award winning Amiga version of this cyberpunk action-adventure, originally developed by Delphine Software International. Set in the year 2142, you assume the role of Conrad B. Hart, an agent for the Galaxia Bureau of Investigation, and attempt to piece together your erased memory in order to save the earth that is under threat of destruction by aliens. As a precaution, you saved your memory in a holocube and use this as an aid during your quest for identity. Can you complete the 7 levels in this classic platformer to destroy the aliens and save the world? Take up the challenge and download now!"

Well that's odd, the game is 1MB but as soon as you launch it, it has you connect to their servers and download another 3mb of junk.

That's odd indeed. Anti-piracy approach?

That's a pretty good idea if that's the case.

I remember playing this game on my SNES. There was another game, Out of This World, that came from the same developer. I liked both of these games other than the password save system. The screenshot shows a password, so I wonder if the same save system is used.

no doesn't appear to be a piracy check, it seems it's set up to download level sets incase the developer wants to add more, or it's to download sounds, im leaning towards the sounds. i havent looked at it too in depth to check it out to know 100%.
