Question [Found: S.OfLight] Sidescroller Turrican like game / first level in desert egypt-like

Hi again guys...

this is the next game. A sidescroller. It reminded me heavily of Turrican,
but it actually isnt. I started playing in the desert and encountered some "egypt-like" platforms with statue-heads firing at me.

I remember getting gun-upgrades so I could fire 3 paralell shots like this:

---

I think I could fire diagonal-upward. At the end of the desert-mission, i got to a space craft and could fly it in space too (sidescroller style).

It's my 2nd Thread... please help.

Greetings,
Caballus

@Caballus; you should really play the arcade version via MAME though.

Much better graphics, more levels etc.

hmm the palette on the screenshots on HOL seem kind of dark? Was this ported from the Atari and not had the colour palette adjusted??

Just my 2 cents..

Seems that way; much like most Dinamic releases and some certain other developers

Sorry to say that, but that version is worse than original arcade version or C64 version.

Arcade:
