I remember the beta showing up on GBATemp and everyone puzzling over it because it was in French or German or something, but I never got around to trying it out, and I can't find any real information out there about it.

Hmm...first time i've heard of Flashback on GBA. I would like to see more. Do you have pics in regards to the port? Smile

The beta for Flashback Legend(s?) seems to be pretty well understood by now:

A number of things kept it from seeing wider exposure and attention. It's hardly finished, and can't be completed or even played through normally. All the text is in French, and there's only a single music track (apparently taken straight from Fade to Black?). In fact, there's an unused progress report on development:

A real shame that it was never released and the developers closed down. But I have to admit, I'm not sure how well received it would have been, even with all the content fleshed out. It doesn't seem like a huge advance (cough) over the original, as much of a classic as that was.
