Something to open the scores with. I doubt Biscuit will have too much trouble topping this.

I'm glad this came up as I've never given it enough time. I didn't have an Amiga at the time. I think my first experience of Turrican was a demo on the Spectrum. Not the same experience!

I've booted it up for a few goes before but never really with any intent or much time to put into it.

It's easy to see why this gets so much love.

Long time since I've beat this. I keep forgetting the way, lol. And a few too many leaps of faith.

Close, but no cigar. I got stuck and couldn't find a way out, hit escape and game over. Good fun though. I got way closer than I thought I would. No more time for me now. Congrats Biscuit!

Ah, so close. You really should have had it. The alien levels have some very mean traps that wipe you out quickly.

Well played everyone, it's been a fun tournament again.

That was a tough battle for bronze, as close as it gets - congratz to Biscuit for prevailing.

GOLD for yours truly, SILVER for jPV, BRONZE for Biscuit and finally CHOCOLATE for darkwave.

This was the last Knockout consisting of 5 rounds, next time the quarter final will start directly after the Qualifying Round.
