Even in the middle of the rebuild, I couldn't resist getting this one finished. Testament to the the enduring popularity of the series, this was one of our most requested releases even though RGCD already released a Turrican Trilogy for CD32 years ago.

The key difference between the two releases is we've used the CDTV versions of the first two Turrican games. The grenades in the first game can be launched by pressing RED+BLUE simultaneously, and the high score screens in both games are fully joypad compatible.

Unfortunately since there was no CD version of Turrican 3, we've had to stick with the floppy version there. The gameplay is fully joypad compatible but the high score screen is not. Fortunately, you can press PLAY at any time during the game and it'll reload the game - I know it's not perfect but it's the best we can do for the moment.

We've packed this one with bonuses too - music (Hippo Player's installed with music from all three games), demo versions of all three games are included, as well as the PD Turrican/Pang mashup, "Super Obliteration". And to top it all off - an intro exclusive to this release (Utilising videos from the cancelled Turrican 3D project with a fan made remix as the backing track, more details are on the YouTube video below)

  1. Thank you for this great compilation, here in Germany is Turrican a big Legend. Turrican 1 has some glitches, but i have this one on a another cd. Sadly there is no "Tony and Friends in Kelloggs Land" on the disc, but I can wait. Sorry for the bad english and keep up with your amazing work.

  3. Hello! This is a really nice collection. :) I have a problem i hope someone can help me with it. Not just this one game but a few others. Turrican 3 only plays in black and white with weird scanlines :( is this a problem with my console or can something be done about it?

  4. Hello,
    I usually don't burn anything. But as I know I just have to burn the ISO to a CD.
    Done with Super Cars, but I only receive a black Screen on both of my Amiga CD32.
    With the Turrican ISO I receive after minutes a workbench Screen. Nothing more.
    What do I have to do that the games are working?
    I use Tevion 700 MB 52x CDs - pure silver
