    What’s this game about? Never heard of it.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      The game tells a story of Lester, a young scientist who, as a result of an experiment gone wrong, finds himself in a dangerous alien world where he is forced to fight for his survival.

      The original played like an early version of Shadow Complex…we talking way early…but who knows what this one brings to the table.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    WOW….I loved this game on the computer way back when. Too bad it’s not available on the 360. Man everyday that goes by there seems to be another reason for me to buy an X1.

      Good call. The xbox one is terrific. definitely worth the money.

  • jsjodoin88

    Nice:) Part of the games history :p gonna buy it for sure!!!!

  • ImTheMetalLord

    Found a trailer on it and it looks like the same game basically. Those that are not familiar with it will be surprised that it’s a 20 year old game that hasn’t been revamped, at least from what I could tell on the trailer.

    Well played X1

  • Jorge Garza

    Keep the games coming!

  • Rafik Bouchaala

    the 20th edition was released on pc like 3 years ago? this is basically the same game without any updates and it is expensive and very short (3 hours max)

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Actually the PC version was Released On: April 29, 2013 and the retail price on it is $9.99 so this is a reasonable price.

      • Rafik Bouchaala

        ah so it is 1 year old my bad. Well maybe you love this game cause you played when you were young, I was still 2 years old when it released lol

    • ElektroDragon

      That’s the master plan. You didn’t think Xbox One Games with Gold would be AAA blockbusters DID YOU?

      • sporeboy100

        its had better offerings in its first month than what the PS4 had across its first 6

    • Michael Burden

      $8 is expensive for you? If so, I suggest you start another hobby

      • Sam Smith

        Mummy & Daddy can’t buy games for us all. Some of us have bills & priorities.

        • Michael Burden

          And if $8 is the breaking point, you need to find a less expensive hobby. Complaining about a $60 game is one thing, but $8 for a new release is a little ridiculous to be whining about – especially when most indie/arcade titles are going for $15-$20 on the One.

  • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

    It is a classic piece of gaming history. I still don’t care that it’s coming out on Xbox One.

    • Elan Gabriel

      Thanks for sharing that with us.

    • rb

      Go hug a PS4

    • Nick Peck

      And we don’t care that you don’t care :D

  • Death Dealer

    Now that’s a remake I can support.

  • Kazaam

    Yeau, im 3xited! Another reason to buy the one in september! I lov3d it…

  • Mike

    20th Anniversary? its three years late then. Anyway, so much cheaper to buy on android than the xbox one. Is this available in the UK as so far most the games released seem to be USA only.

  • ElektroDragon

    Wow, I sort of remember this game? But where is Valiant Hearts?

    • Death Dealer

      It’s out now.

  • Harvey Burnett

    I already bought Flashback on my 360.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      This is not Flashback…..it’s classic PC gaming that was way ahead of it’s time. If you never played it I would suggest giving it a go.

      • Some Person

        Flashback (original) was better but OOTW was still fun. I remember it taking me ages to get past that first enemy… evil (brilliant) people turning gaming conventions on their knees.

      • Mike

        Classic pc gaming unlikely. It was the amiga and st generation classic. Pc gaming was small and virtually non existant.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          You are correct it was originally developed for the Amiga and Atari ST however it had/has a cult following on the PC where it became popular and sold way many more copies.

          • Mike

            either way i agree its a classic without a doubt. i remember me and my friends running around the school playground imitaiting the game voices. i think one sounded like ‘mah crowbar’ lol dont want to replay it because games and my taste has changed so much that i might not like it now. I want to keep the good memories i have of it.

  • jase

    Didnt enjoy it 20 years ago so not for me.

    • Does Not Equal

      That’s great.

  • Some Person

    Seriously now, why is this not on the 360? I’m pretty sure that the 360 can run a 23 year old game… seeing as how I bought this from GOG for the PC a year ago I actually know the 360 can.

  • Nikki Mond

    Damn, I would love to play this. So many arcade games coming out this week.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i remembering buying this (all games had cool box art) and being like wtf. games were so hard back then to kids. every game was like dark souls difficulty. only crying and gritting teeth got you through it and the occasional broke controller. i won’t be getting this game again. still have the original.

    i see this game today in twitch, and i buy in the moment…is wonderfull

  • Bennijin

    $7.99 = £4.71.
    £6.39 = $10.85.

    For goodness’ sake…

        You first, get Microsoft to while you’re at it. Or go on XE dot com.

        DLC pricing model, pre-November 2013 prices in brackets.
        $19.99 = £15.99* (£13.49)
        $14.99 = £11.99 (£9.99)
        $9.99 = £7.99 (£6.75)
        $4.99 = £3.99 (£3.39**)
        *£14.99 on PSN
        **Sometimes £3.19 on PSN

        Conversions correct at the time of writing according to XE.
        Rounded to two decimal places.

        USD to GBP
        US DLC pricing model
        $19.99 = £11.90
        $14.99 = £8.92
        $9.99 = £5.95
        $4.99 = £2.97

        GBP to USD
        Current UK DLC pricing model
        £15.99 = $26.87
        £11.99 – $20.15
        £7.99 = $13.42
        £3.99 = $6.70

        Previous UK DLC pricing model (before November 2013)
        £13.49 = $22.66
        £9.99 = $16.79
        £6.75 = $11.34
        £3.39 = $5.70

        UK tax is 20%, however digital transactions are handled in Luxembourg where the tax rate is 15%. The UK Government want to close this loophole by next year, and even if they do Microsoft are still price gouging us for having the audacity to live in a different region.

        In this instance £4.71 + 20% VAT is £5.65. That is the absolute maximum this should cost. The extra charge is completely baseless in this day and age.

  • Gazza!!!

    Already got this on the good old OUYA but I loved it so much I bought it again.

    • sporeboy100

      you need help

      • Gazza!!!

        What do you suggest?

  • sporeboy100

    *moves head left and right to spot the Grumplings, no Grumplings spotted, sets up camp here*

  • ElektroDragon

    Would it have killed them to put a darned checkpoint after the water escape sequence? Jeez, talk about frustration. Take 100 tries to get past the bloody thing just to get insta vaporized by an alien 2 screens later… and YAY I get to the water thing again! But wait… I get through it again after 20 tries… and I get vaporized again! Ugh….

    • Gazza!!!

      Ha. I was struggling at that part the first time I got here after originally playing it years ago. Check out a video guide as you have to do things in a certain order which should give you a check point.

    Is this a HD remake that came out a few years ago?
