Generations Lost is a Sega Mega Drive cinematic platform game developed by Pacific SoftScape and published by Time Warner Interactive. First released in Europe and the United States in late 1994, and soon brought to South Korea by HIC Infocomm, the game is most notable for being the only title produced by the California-based developer.

Gameplay

Generations Lost features gameplay similiar to 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, he also acquires the ability to warp between areas, although the game’s length doesn’t allow its extensive use.
