The Slowdown have posted their review of Ratloop Asia's three-category IGF 2010 finalist, "Rocketbirds: Revolution!"
The review builds a strong parallel to the themes and gameplay style found in Flashback, also comparing it rather favourably to other games in the action-platformer genre.
The cinematic-anthropomorphic indie game, though developed on Flash, also manages to avoid common pitfalls of the platform by utilizing hand-drawn backgrounds and detailed animations as well as stopping to take much-needed breathers in the form of puzzles.
The review ends on a high note, stating that "Rocketbirds: Revolution!" is the next-best thing you'll have to Flashback right now.
