Eek Turrican in "The Edge"?

I heard that there currently is a "making of Turrican" in the Edge (uk) magazine.

Since it isnīt available in Germany - would anybody be so kind to scan it? (I hope anybody has it?)

In fact give me 20 minutes the writing in EDGE is tiny, so I'm gonna need a higher resolution.

Hope you find it interesting, I did.

I've uploaded a zip of it in the zone, it's 3 pages, they aren't the best scans ever, but you can read it all.

The 1st page was terrible, I had to create a negative otherwise the writing was illegible.

It's a bloody interesting article actually.

Thanks a lot for the Scan!


Mmh. Quite interesting, but the only new thing are the comments from factor 5.

BTW: that the name is from "Turricanoīs" if officially wrong, its from the duesseldorf telephone-book.

Is there another Retro issue out? Or is this the regular Edge?

I got the 2nd Retro issue == fantastic, I still have the last few games to read about, and I have had it for over a month!

It's in the zone already, just go and grab it.

There is also a lovely section on hardcore games that is really good. Treasure have a few in their, and Team17 has a mention with Project-X, although they do comment about not many people getting past the 2nd level

Thumbs up

Interesting link there-had no idea about the amiga-specific version of Turrican 3, I'm sure if Factor 5/Manfred Trenz had done it then it wouldn't have needed to be canned.

And I'm glad to see that some people do remember Turrican originated on the C64 too-I'm not saying the Amiga versions aren't classics in their own right, but it was a C64 miracle piece of coding.
