Of course.

At least it was nice to learn there are people who appreciate Turrican although they weren't even born when it was released.

*starts laughing mildly*...*cough* *cough* *gasp for breath*...*continues laughing*


@Chuck-Rock-Jnr: You could just use Pekaro's T2002-editor and save a lot of already-done-work and just focus on the level layouts...

At the weekend I played the T2002-levelpack "Morgul Returns" (version 2.1). It's incredibly, insanely awesome!
It consists of 16 very long, but also very well designed levels, good boss-fights and very well composed music. There's even a shmup-stage like in Turrican II (also a jetpack-level).
Whereas the original T2002-levels were a bit chaotic I can fully recommend Morgul Returns.
But be warned - it's the longest Turrican I've ever played. Takes 3-4 hours to complete...
The levelpack, no, the game (it is a standalone game) starts with nice Beast III-backgrounds, later uses some Turrican II PC-level gfx and many Mega/Super Turrican-sprites (including the Turrican-sprite).
But mostly this is a remake of Turrican I (Amiga). Play and see for yourself!

Recently the same person who created Morgul Returns (Lukasz Maniewski) released "Metroidican" which uses Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion's level graphics and already was praised a lot.
I'll try that on the weekend.

Get T2002 (including the editor) from: www.pekaro.de (=> "Download")
And Levelpacks at: http://www.nemmelheim.de/turrican (=> "Levelbase")


P.S. Going by the creator's name I guess Morgul Returns and Metroidican might be the best Polish games ever created...

Heeey! Are you making fun of our national treasure - AMOS games, sir?

Thanks for the linkies btw...

No! Tbh I've never played one of those - only read about some by browsing through Lemon Amiga's game reviews.

Morgul Returns is just so damn good I think it's fair to assume it's superior to these AMOS games.

Btw., since there are a lot of those - could you recommend a few of the best?

Why, of course

My favorites:

Astral, a puzzle platformer with a very memorable insider joke in the intro...
character 1: "Coś tutaj miga" ("something is blinking here...")
character 2: "A miga, miga" ("indeed, it is blinking it is")


Legion, a rpg/strategy with lots of quests and items and a huge world

Lost in Mine, a puzzle platformer, nicely done

Rebel, a real-time strategy, pretty good
