There is alot more than that in the pipeline, found a great site alittle while back with a wealth of Turrican related material.
Covers everything about the classics and news on other upcoming games that our very much Turrican inspired eg: the very nice looking upcoming freeware game Hurrican (demo available)

Turrican SETA
Click on the S.E.T.A link when you get there for the info on Turrican related games in development.

It's an amazing site for anyone who is into the Turrican Trilogy...Great stuff. :-D

18 megs is tiny for a PC demo!  Try downloading the Battlefield 1942 MP demo, it's over 130megs!!!  But it's totally worth it, just bought the retail version a couple days ago, wicked game!!!  Been playing it none stop, just took a small break to check amiga.org.  :)

...no one writes nice free games for the Amiga anymore. :/

I just hope they decide to take advantage of some of the extras a PC offers like assigning functions to individual joystick buttons.  Why use the space bar for for the special weapon when I have 7 unused buttons on my joystick?!?  Plus they should give the graphics a big face lift.  Otherwise, it's the same old classic!

Well people doesnt develop for amiga basically because no one buys it! , its sad.... but true.

A game takes time to develop andmore or less done by 1 or 2 people in theese days (amiga) , if its a classic game anyway.

abut 300 copies need to be sold to make a "actual profit" for the developers , and maybe around 400/500 copies sold might lead em into making another one.
(anyway thats my opinion and i am a developer on amiga)

also for people who dont know, 300 copies is HARD to sell on amiga, even if its a NG style game (with ppc/rtg/ahi support etc..)



Lets hope this changes, if it does....yes we will bring more games and stop whining ......

 It's a cruel reality, if only Commodore would have forseen the coming of M$'s new crappy little GUI for cheap PC's with only 256 colors. Perhaps they could have lowered prices, and really got the consumer's attention! I recall that everyone back then usually wound up with a Mac, unless they were poor, then they bought a PC, but all of them dreamed of having the doe for an Amiga. Now consider, if Amiga would have dropped harware prices back in those days, they could have sold millions of units, and the world would not be so dumb as to think multi-tasking was something M$ invented in 95. :)

 Anyhow back to the game, I'll download it tonight and give it a go. I guess it is kinda kool that it is for PC, using the space bar to launch my super grenade or what ever in Turican 3 got kinda old after a while. :)

Wouldn't it be nice for a proper 3D Turrican to be released on the AmigaOne ?  That would bering back a bit of nostalgia and give the AmigaOne a leading title.

instead of going to see what games are available on PEE CEEs (Turrican on nintendo64 kincks butt though)
 
 i'm going to  take abong hit and try my reflexes with deluxe galanga....

   please mention releases for amiga- there are enough abundant sources for pc-games (even if it is a remix of what first came out for c-64, with an amiga version soon following-

i still think the c64 version was more fun (1&2), besides being more impressive how much it pushed the hardware(64k ram!) :-o  :-o  :-o
