Not much to say about Turrican 3 apart from it's
very similar to the other two games (Turrican,
and also that it wasn't commercially released and so it
doesn't have the same clean, cut finish as the other two
previous versions. Saying that - it's still a good piece
of work and the programmer should be congratulated for
God it was tedious trying
to backup this ending up! Played it on VICE and it
seemed to crash on the final level all the time. So,
started again on CCS64, but then had a nightmare... I
had to stick it onto tape then backup again to disk -
BUT CCS64 doesn't seem to allow 2 files to be saved to
the same disk so I had to backup the final file on VICE.
What a palava!
Anyway! (",). Thought I'd
give this a bash having never played it before. Plays
almost identical to Turrican 2, with the exception of
the 4th level which is glitchy and garbage...
Turrican: "So come on
then! Where's the final boss?!"
Turrican: "ah -
Boss: "Come here you
Turrican: "Take that
you big head!"
Boss: "Now you're
REALLY gonna get it!"
Boss: "Eat skulls you
Turrican: "Take THAT
right up your nose!"
Turrican: "Now what
can YOU do to harm ME?"
Turrican: "OH FUCK!"
And so the ending
...blow the roof
"RUN THE CREDITS!"
In true Turrican
epilogue and credits...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I didn't cheat! (Vinny: I had to use a cheat to make
the video of the final boss and ending!!)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have FINALLY killed off the boss, we see out hero flying
away from the city just before it's about to explode.
AMAZING! Third time lucky too!!
