I never played the original Flashback, instead I played the remake on 360. It had potential and nice visuals, but gameplay felt unpolished especially in late levels. I'm gonna take a wild guess and say they will not port that.

I remember playing this game on the Sega Genesis, and I absolutely loved it. The end credits were outstanding, I can still play the music and visuals in my head. Spoiler alert: I recall that if you type in the password "Cygnus" at the title screen, you will skip right into those end credits.

OMG exactly! CYGNUS on PC worked too. I remember how I dreamed to play this on Amiga... The remake is shit sadly.
