I am very surprised there are so many places we have spotted. I think Turrican 1 only has one place which is leechable - so it would be fun to play this as well some time.

With just one week to go, I'd be happy with some players - just one more player on either side would give us our top 5.

True, these domes can be leeched as well. Don't recall a spot in Turrican I. Maybe the bats that double themselves?

Do you remember the bit where you are running down a tunnel and find a trash shoot with random stuff falling from the top. This is one of T1s unique things. You must shoot enough trash to jump using the least damage, but the trash is also worth points.

Of course, that place. Should they rerelease and remaster Turrican 1&2 they should give no points for these spots.

vermillion.. long story short I was inactive on eab for many many years, returned with a new account/new handle, then later found out multiple accounts were not allowed so I spoke with RCK and he was fine with it.
The mystery of my identity was so amusing I ran with it for quite some time.. well right up until now in fact

Wow, keeping silent about it for over four years. Nice to have you in the league, Vermillion - EAB Games League champion 2007.

Looking forward to your score with our new ruleset.

I cant believe you only scored 27M in Super Hang-on 2007, you have certainly improved since then!

11 Players played this game in 2007, and with Linesmachine we have the same number this time around.

After 50+ retries finally managed to do a "clean" run:



3,610,100

Video upload will take the whole day (25 GB) so to stay fair I post the screenshot now already.

My one and only token score for the round. I've barely been on EAB or Lemon for the past week as other things have taken priority and let's be honest, I'm not going to go out of my way to make time for a game I don't really like, either.

Apologies for any slow updates, and to those who have sent me PMs that I haven't responded to or possibly even read! I will deal with all of these over the weekend.

59 is the maximum! That's what I meant with "clean run": no lives lost and missed.
But in this game when your lives counter goes down to 0 you still have one life. So the counter actually stands for "spare lives" so in fact you do have 60 lives when it says 59.

Yeh I was being sarcastic
Very impressive score! I couldn't handle the stress of 'attempting' a perfect run, let alone actually doing it

I know of course.
Thanks m8. For other games I wouldn't have put in so much effort but this is my favorite Amiga title.

Handbrake usually compresses game footage very well.
