That's a great pair to put together. I wonder which version of Flashback it is.

The original. I checked the official eShop page for the game and the screenshots show it's the older original rather than the subpar XBLA remake from a few years back I remember Microsoft did sponsored LPs for (there was this one week back in 2013 I believe where a lot of YouTubers were asked by Microsoft to do a paid promotion for "The Summer of XBLA" where for one week they'd play certain games that were coming to the service like the Flashback remake, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and some punk rock beat-em-up that looked interesting but I never checked it out myself).

But I mean, from which console (or PC?)

I grew up playing Flashback on the SNES and really enjoyed it, but I heard the Genesis version was better in some regards.

It says on the page you can play it in either a classic or "modern" mode. Classic seems to be a straight port of the Genesis version, while the "modern" mode uses remastered sound and music, new graphics filters, and a rewind function similar to what the NES and SNES Switch Online games have.

Thanks! That's good to know!
