Never seen that one before, too bad it isn't in higher resolution.

Ha! I haven't seen this before, since it crossed my way a few years ago. Just because it was a part of the Original, a ... poster ... or something like that, that was included. But who had the original of Turrican anyways? :D

damn...what a shame... :( now I feel guilty......

I actually owned the originals of Turrican 1, 2 and 3 on the Amiga, and the c64 version of T2.

I remember, there was this poster included with T2:

I recently had a nostalgic trip down memory lane, revisiting the Turrican series; researching the history and (now I'm a software developer) marvelling at the technical accomplishment....

20 YEARS AGO! :shock:

I am now, officially old.

Anyway, I loved discovering this image, I'd never really considered that the game world actually fit together/existed as a whole! I blame the spiral blocks transition for seducing me into a love affair with her pixels...

(Shameless plug alert: There's a remix of Turrican 2 'Traps' on the remix/releases board - by some newbie fool.... :wink: )
