Super Turrican mp3s
Often requested, finally online:
a selection of the best songs of Super Turrican 1 + 2 (SNES) in mp3-format.

Much more fun to hear, because the original spc-Format didn´t have an end - and so the songs usually looped endless.

Get them, as usual, at the Bonusfiles.

As nearly all mp3s here, the files are hosted at Robert Konrads Turrican Forever Fanpage.

more Cell Phone Turrican
As Gregg Nolan, Associate Brand Manager at THQ Wireless told me, they are developing another Turrican for cell-phones. It should be available late summer 2005 on all major carriers.

The pictures I got look like Turrican 2004 from the Siemens M65.

Thanks!

Hurrican Beta!
The Poke´s announced that Hurrican ist now going to be beta-tested. This means every level gets tested and finished, one after another, and if we are lucky they even release some screenshots everytime a level is done. I guess this will still take some month, finishing includes a lot of work, e.g. adding missing boss-monsters.

Turrican Music Disk by Andromeda
If you have WinUAE installed, you may want to have a look at the Turrican Music Disk by Andromeda, which I found at pouet.net.

It features a nice menu and all songs of Turrican 1 + 2 on one disk.

Update: and if you also have a C64-Emulator ready, have a look at 1.67 Years by The Obsessed Maniacs, there are some short and bloody appearances of Turrican, as well as good Turrican-style sid-music. Don´t miss the end!

New GGT Demo
Martin Konrad released a new demo level of GGT (Turrican for Sega Gamegear!), get it at www.smspower.org/ggt. He recommends to play it with the Emulator Emukon.

It features a new level, stage 1.1 (the old demo was stage 1.2), new, more detailled grapics and, as usual, a quite hard gameplay.

If I keep in mind, that a Gamegear has only 8 kByte RAM and a Zilog Z80 (8-bit) processor running at 3.58 MHz, I am technically deeply impressed . And the gameplay feels just like Turrican.

T1 Title by dish - Remake of the Turrican 1 title
D353rt!! by dish - the desert rocks Remake
Virtua Orchestra by Sebuko - is thought as a prologue/intro Song for Turrican 4

Thanks a lot!

Back in Black!
The ultimate device for controlling Turrican ist back:
The Competition Pro Joystick!

It´s now available as Windows-compatible USB-Device for 15€, and features the same look as in 1985 (sadly only the black one...), 4 buttons, 2 axes and auto-fire.

I now ordered one, so expect a review soon ;)

The official Product site can be found at speed-link.com. Funny: the company behind speed-link.com, Jöllenbeck GmbH, produced the Quickjoy-Joysticks back then in the old Amiga-and-C64-times, the imho greatest rival to the Competition Pro ;)

Update for german readers: Ich habe heute Abend bei dem Shop, bei dem ich heute meinen Stick bestellt habe gefragt, ob wir einen Rabatt bekommen können - und jetzt (23.59 Uhr!) habe ich schon eine Antwort.

Jeder der seinen Competition Pro USB bei http://www.fairtronic.de (ArtNr.SL-6602) bestellt, und auf die Bestätigungsmail der Bestellung antwortet, das er von Turrican SETA kam, bekommt den Joystick für nur 12,99€ + Porto. Normalerweise 14,99€ + 4,76 EUR Porto bei Vorkasse. Also ran an die Sticks :)

Retro Magazin
The Retro-Magazin 12/04 features an Interview mit Manfred Trenz and includes questions (and answers) like if he has some unfinished Turricans in his drawers, or what he thinks about all the people still asking him about Turrican.

Nothing groundbreaking new, but fun to read.

Turrican Shirt Remake
Since the official Turrican Shirt isn´t for sale anymore, I remade the shirt´s motive. Sounds easy - but it was some hours of work, because the Turrican 1 Cover picture is nearly not to be found completly. So I´ve puzzled it together from 4 different covers and the poster.

Get it here or at the bonusfiles and print it on a shirt at your local copyshop, or e.g. at http://www.spreadshirt.de/.

And: the first one who mails me a picture of himself wearing the (new) shirt gets a picture in the news ;)

Ruff n Tumble T2002 Level
C.Werdehausen just mailed be a new Level for T2002. It features new enemies and a great tileset from Ruff´n´Tumble. Also included are four mp3s, two from Ruff, and two C64 tunes.

Get it, as usual, at the T2002-Levels and write plenty of comments.

New Hurrican Shots!
At poke53280.de, there are some new shots of Hurrican, even one of the new, dark, fleshy Alien-Level.

The water has been completly replaced, it´s now animated and has tiny waves. Also new is the ability to shoot diagonally and up.

And Eiswuxe was quite upset, that some fans said Hurrican would be dead - it is not, not a bit. He explained the lack of new pictures and news with not wanting to spoil every great new feature, and right now it´s beeing worked more then ever on Hurrican.

Why there are no new official Turricans
While researching the case of trademarks around katakis/denaris, we noticed something that may be the cause why neither Factor 5, nor THQ release a new Turrican:

THQ owns the trademark "Turrican" in germany (where turrican is most known) and Factor 5 owns it for the USA and the rest of Europe. And releasing it only for one part of the world wouldn´t be profitable enough I guess.
This at least explains, why THQ once answered me the question about creating a new Turrican with "Surely this would be a possibility, but since as well economic as license-rightly interests have to be considered, it isn´t quite as easy as you maybe imagine."

Added to the facts.

You can read it yourself at https://dpinfo.dpma.de and http://www.uspto.gov/.
