Turrican 2 PC demo

I had one demo of Turrican 2 for PC from 1995. Supposedly it was a one level demo, but it turned out to be the full game!.

If you press F1 it skips to the next level, and F2 skips two levels.

I put it in the zone if anyone is interested.

I might try it in PCTask.But a 'backport' for AGA Amigas would be nice.
Turrican 2 for the CD in 256 colors would be so ...
Who knows, since you zoned it, maybe someone around here is crazy and talented enough.

The PC version is basically the AGA version, or what it would've been. Fantastic port - better than the Amiga one.

Amiga version is better, even when it has less colors. What I dislike the most of the PC version is the Turrican sprite.. But overall it is quite a good port of this genre for DOS.

There's also a BeOS version which is an adaptation of the PC version.

I like that the pc version is more colorful but i don't like that the rock textures were changed etc. and of course the turrican suit seems to have a square toaster for a helmet

A good friend of mine, David Spicer wrote the PC Turrican demo as some sort of job CV

The intro graphics look OK, except for the faces. If I was 8 and saw those for the first time, I'd be scared. I also don't understand why the helmet was changed. Other than that it looks and sounds pretty good.
