[Found: Assassin] 2D platform game maybe in the style of Turrican

I have some distant memories from when I was a little kid of my elder brother playing a 2D sidescroller game on the Amiga 1200, that may or may not resemble Turrican. It may as well be any of the Turrican-games if my memory happens to trick me, but now on to the specifics of that game:


I think I remember something like a section in the game where there was a boss (I don't actually remember the boss in any detail whatsoever), and the character you controlled (a man i suppose) used a special power up that affected the whole screen. I think the character faced the camera instead of left- or right, and shot missiles all over the screen. I thought it was very cool. Bear in mind that this also can be my mind playing tricks on me.



I can't remember anything more from this game; he may just had borrowed the game from a friend/classmate for a day (he got his Amiga in 1993).

It could be a game like Strider, but I believe the guy you controlled used a kind of special attack (imagine how it's like using special attacks in Golden Axe). I don't have many clues, details or much more to rest on, so I'll wait and see what happens in this topic.

I don't think it's neither of those two games; I have a feeling the game was more science-fiction like (I remember my brother borrowing Shadow Dancer on the Sega Master System before he had an Amiga).

Yeah, I just found out about the Special Edition. My brother may or may not have been playing the Special Edition some 25-26 years ago, but I have no doubt it is one of the Assassin games.
