Turrican II AGA für AMIGA & A500 mini erschienen!

Vor 27 Jahren hatten die 3 Nachwuchsentwickler von SUN-Project die AMIGA-Version von Turrican II “offiziell” auf den PC portiert (Release: 12/1995). Nun hat es der britisch-australische Entwickler Alastair “Muzzy” Murray im Alleingang in nur 20 Monaten (04/2021 – 12/2022) wieder zurück auf den AMIGA gebracht, mit voller AGA-Unterstützung und zahlreichen neuen Features! 

Das Spiel läuft auf einem AMIGA mit AGA Chipsatz (A1200/4000/CD32) mit 2MB Chip- und 2, bzw. 8MB FastRAM.  Auch eine Version für den A500 mini ist im Releasepaket enthalten.

Das Projekt hat sogar das offizielle OK von Factor 5 bekommen, die Bezeichnung “Turrican” zu verwenden, da es sich um ein inoffizielles und kostenloses Fanprojekt handelt. (Factor 5 besitzt die Rechte am Begriff “Turrican” für deren selbstentwickelte Spiele, die PC-Version zählt nicht dazu)
