A fan remake of the classic 16-bit era Turrican games. Comes with its own launcher/installer which makes downloading the 15+ games based on it as easy as pie. Some of these games are crossovers with franchises such as Metroid and Shadow of the Beast. All feature updated graphics and sound, making them the best looking and best sounding versions of Turrican around. Several games are megamixes which combine the best elements of Turricans 1, 2 and 3, the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive ‘Mega Turrican’ and ‘Super Turrican’ for the SNES.
NB – the graphics in-game look much sharper than this video suggests - video compression issues I suspect, or the low resolution it was recorded at. In game it looks more like this;
An even more up-to-date remake of the Turrican games. Features significantly improved visuals reminiscent of Super Stardust or Rise of the Robots due to its use or ray-traced sprites. Gameplay has also been improved - you can shoot in a 180-degree arc with your primary weapons, and you can carry all three - laser, spread shot and bounce at the same time and you can swap between them on-the-fly. The controls for the razor disk mode have also been improved, as you can now exit the mode in mid-air and immediately perform a jump - useful for reaching secret areas.
Boss fights are well thought out and require a degree of thought and strategy to complete. The game also finds a new use for the crystals you will be collecting like a kleptomaniac - they increase the timer. If it reaches zero you do not simply die - instead the game gets very interesting very quickly - but I won't spoil the surprise.
Combine all three 16-bit Streets of Rage games, add a whole host of new content, playable characters and gameplay mechanics then improve the graphics and sound and what do you get? Streets of Rage Remake 5.1 - one of the best brawlers around.
What do you get if you take all three Final Fight games, throw in a load of characters and special moves from Street Fighter 2, introduce an insane combo system, true widescreen support, more Easter Eggs than a sweet shop in April, then improve the graphics and sound?
You get Final Fight LNS Ultimate, also one of the best brawlers around.
