Turrican now available for iOS

Turrican is one of the most popular games on the Commodore 64 and Amiga. The game and its sequels made their way to a multitude of platforms before dropping off the face of the earth in the mid 1990s.

Those desperate for a quick portable Turrican fix can now get it on their iDevice. Elite Systems has released an iOS port of the popular C64 shooter Turrican. It’s a universal app and will set you back just $AU1.99.

It’s an emulated version of the game featuring touch screen controls, save states and some information on the history of Turrican.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Universal Soldier

Universal Soldier was essentially a pallette swap version of Turrican 2 hastily thrown together to cash in on the ultra violent Jean Claude Van Damme/Dolph Lundgren action film released in 1992. Three original stages were produced for this version, replacing some of the shmup stages in the original. The SNES version mentioned in the ad was never released.
