its quite easy to eg get stuck in the surroundings in both T1 and T2 for example, indeed.

Nah, you can fully complete this game and as deekay pointed out, its quite massive.
Lacks some of the level design when you're used to T1+2 but still rocks hard.
There is a working EF version running already. Missing ingredient: time, lotsa time.

too bad this game isnt playable.
it has bugs that stop the game, and you cannot save your progress. i only played it once, till it got stuck, then i forever forgot about it.

I'd just like to point out that I did manage to crash (or "lock up") Turrican 1, too, repeatedly! <:-) The original, so it's no cracker's fault! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.. Still people seem to have completely forgotten about these bugs after all these years, and I'm sure the same will happen to T3, which is really a massive game! ;-D

Loaded it only once, looked at the nice graphics, explosions and stuff, and I kinda liked it. I hardly ever play games, especially C64 games are outta fashion at my model agency...
If it would be a demo, I'd beg for an option to skip the boring parts and see the fun stuff only.

Because you are too lazy, I have done the job to translate your comment.
look here:


this is the first & last time that I do that... It was nice if you would press "edit" for your comment and copy & paste my translation, thanks!

M-forcer, on this board there's a rule that people should only post in English. We realize there are more German people here, but that still doesn't mean you can break that rule. You probably didn't know about this, but fortunately it's not too late to translate your original post :)

Selbst stark buglastig schießt sich dieser Titel in den Olymp der 64er Games.
Turrican 3 hat vor allem eines: ein verdammt geniales Gameplay und ein Mapdesign, daß einfach Laune macht.
Zurück zu den Anfängen, als der Levelausgang nicht mit Schildern selbst für ganze doofe gekennzeichnet war.

Hier wird noch gesucht - hier wird noch jede Ecke ausgeleuchtet.
(Grüße an EGGE)

All denen, die z.B. die Rückkehr der "Faust" bemängeln oder andere Verbeugungen vor den beiden Originalturrican, sei gesagt: es kann gar nicht genug Fäuste in Turrican geben, wie es nicht genut Sturmtruppen in Star Wars geben kann.

Ich hoffe, jmd. macht mal eine Version mit nur Fäusten... haufenweise ... :-)

Was da auf dem kleinen Commodore abgeht, haben Factor 5 seit ihren Turrican-creationen auf MD/SNES nicht erreicht: ein großartiges Spiel - und
ein TURRICAN a la carte, selbst flackernd und ruckelnd.




(Anm. der Red.: Der Verfasser hat seit Sonntag nicht mehr geschlafen...)

though including many bugs, this title bursts into the olymp of c64-games

above all turrican 3 has one thing:
a damn good gameplay and a mapdesign worth enjoying it
back to the roots when the exit hadn't signs for completely dull people
you must search - and you must lighten any corner
greetz to egge

to those people complaining about the return of the fist or other elements of the original turrican titles: be told that there can't be enough fists in turrican exactly as there can't be enough stormtroopers in star wars

i hope someone will do a version only with fists someday

factor 5 didn't succeed in doing such a great game since their md/snes turrican creations as we have it now on this small commodore and it's a turrican a la carte even flickering and jerking

so you crabs...try to do it your own way
or else
shoot or die

the editor didn't sleep since sunday

I AM IMPRESSED!!! As a huge fan of the Turrican games this follow up is worthy the name. Although I've only played Turrican I and II on the Amiga and completed them I'd say that the gameplay on this C64 version is absolutly top. It features the classical Turrican themes such as the big bosses with really predictable pattern etc. :p I LOVE IT! I will probably go home and complete this game aswell.

(I voted 7, because of the bugs. If ever they correct the problems and release a new version it would probably deserve a 9.)
Basicaly it's a good game, a quite good follow up of Turrican 2, but problems of sprites flickering and huge slowdowns makes it sometimes totally impossible to play in some areas.

Best game in 2004! Congrats Smash Designs and to the musicians and to the rest of the T3 crew to make this game possible.

PS: The bugs must be fixed, but iam sure AEG will do it and maybe he add also the game intro of the game in front of it!

Shame about a couple of fairly nasty bugs, but overall it looks and sounds very nice and is a worthy successor to the Turrican series. Well worth the download and playing *properly* from the ori.

A very nice follow up. Main character animation could have been more dynamic. The rest of the game is awesome. Big colourfull levels, nice music and very good gameplay, which is most important. Thumbs up!

After 7 years of work it is done. I dislike the bugs, but most programs have them, I hope they get repaired - either by the original game-crew (preferred) or by a worthy cracker. A nice game and certainly worthy of being the official sequel to Turrican II: Final Fight.

Game creation on the C64 at this level is not an easy feat. Congratulations to the game-crew and to AEG for their efforts.
