Generations Lost is a Sega Mega Drive cinematic platformer developed by Pacific SoftScape. Released in late 1994, it is the only game produced by the California-based studio.

Gameplay

Generations Lost is a cinematic platformer in the vein of Flashback and Blackthorne. Monobe is able to use his powersuit’s electrical rope to swing through stages, and can acquire additional projectile weaponry and shields. Later Monobe acquires the ability to warp between areas, although the game’s length doesn’t allow its extensive use.
