A Challenge #2 TURRICAN 2

After the feeble response to the SB2 challenge, the next challenge is for a game I know a lot of you like to play.

Play through the first level of Turrican 2 and gain the maximum possible points.

Instead of submitting a save-state, you can post a screenie of your end of level score BUT. For this reason this challenge relies upon honesty and is therefore only open to EAB 'regulars' and closes next Sunday

: Definition of regular :

....Whoever Dastardly decides to be a regular member

GOOD LUCK PEOPLE

That isn't the end of level 1 though Dastardly. There's a bit more to get.

I might go and find the image of it if I'm a regular but I always sucked at Turrican

Wow, I found some new secret areas scouring this map for a good score! Thought I already knew em all. Echo moves into pole position for now

For you doubters, I've made a short DivX clip (492k) to prove the score wasn't doctored

@Akira
Lives are irrelevant. Lose as many as you like. Score is all that matters

@Djay
Of course you can enter

Belgarath is the current leader. Kinda makes my score look a bit feeble now

In an hour I'll give it a try. Right now the TV is tied up because I want to watch me anime series

After that, I'll see how I perform. I remember smoking that level.

Hey Akira, instead of waiting for the TV you could always emulate!

He'll have to emulate, unless he plans to snap the TV with a digital camera to show us the score

I missed out on a few things on the level, so the score is DEFINATELY beatable (quite easily too)

I'll go back and redo it later

This can be faked with Adobe AfterEffects

lol, it's all academic now since my score has been thrashed *shakes fist at Belgarath & Amigaboy*


I forgot to comment on the game in my earlier posts. I know it's been said time and time again, but damn - it's perfect in every respect. The graphics are gorgeous (put a screengrab in an image editor, there's a good 256 colours onscreen because of that copper effect, and this is OCS!), the music is nothing short of stunning, animation great - and gameplay second to none. Easily in my top 5 games of all time.
