Yes, but as Retro said earlier, it's normal since Rainbow Arts only sold a few boxes of these games.

But, the C64 versions are the only 'complete' versions. As in, they're the ones with the complete maps.
Wait. I have handy all the maps for the CPC versions, and those are absolutely huge, more like the ones you can find in 16 bits game than an 8 bits one.

Saying the Amiga assets where more complete than the C64 ones is just false: excluding the excellent Amiga music, both games have the 95% the same levels (right down to the tile sizes), enemies and content.
So is the CPC version.... since T1 version is based on the Miggy assets.

Apart from the bits the C64 does have and the Amiga doesn't...

Two examples to show what I mean:
  • Turrican 1 Amiga cuts out an entire bossfight during the verticaly scrolling levels
  • Turrican 2 Amiga cuts out several bonus areas, notably during the waterfall level in world one
Right, that's that.. You can now carry on with the silly 8 bit arguments if you please
Now this is becoming hot. Can you please post screens of these said bonus ? i would like to check if those are present on the CPC version
Ah and the level number please
