December 2022 - Turrican 3
« on: November 30, 2022, 07:40:36 am »
OCS/ECS Game of the Month for December 2022, is Turrican 3!

From Amiga Computing - December 1993 (page 112) - Score - 90%

Time has passed since mankind last heard of The Machine. Bren McGuire is on a United Planets Freedom Forces mission when suddenly he sees his worst nightmares come true again. Years ago, he was the only survivor of the starship Avalon 1 when The Machine took out his comrades in an attempt to take over the galaxy. Back then, Bren sought revenge against his enemy and finally destroyed him in the planet of Landorin. Nobody expected a return of The Machine, but now, after many people enjoyed freedom and peace in the galaxy, the dark forces under his command are starting to assemble again.

In a sweep of terror, The Machine destroys dozens of planets and enslaves hundreds of peaceful people. The old memories arise again when Bren hears the last message of a young and beautiful girl. Desperately she cries for help, as her planet is being taken over by the soldiers of The Machine. As Bren receives the message, he slips into his Turrican assault suit and swears final revenge.

Once again, Bren McGuire, now the current leader of the Freedom Forces, is the only hope in a crucial mission to definitely destroy the grasp of evil represented by The Machine. A lone warrior against the evil hordes of The Machine, Bren jumps out of his ship to face the ultimate challenge.

Cool - I hope I get some time to play it this month. I have missed most of the games this year as work has been crazy. When I had a little bit of free time I focused on getting blog posts written so...salty that I missed XP8.

Anyway, I hope to give Turrican 3 a go this month, on Boxing day hopefully!
