Unofficial Turrican remake

Old-skool 2D shooters aren’t something we write about much; the PC wasn’t well-regarded as a platform for such things, and to be honest I don’t think we’d have a lot to say about most of them anyway. As for Turrican itself, I don’t think Turrican itself even got a PC release. Still, it is most definitely regarded as a classic of its genre, the name spoken in revered tones amongst those who were gaming on formats like the Commodore 64 and Amiga. Plus there was that awesome soundtrack.

I think it’s one of those “if you play any amiga oldie at all, try this one” titles, so both the original and this remake have to be worth a go. Even if you’re like me you’ll probably just die lots and marvel at how much more patient gamers must have been in 1990.
