Turrican - An all time classic game gets another tease for the MSX1 by TheGeps!

If you've been following of all our articles in relation to the work in progress Turrican for the MSX by TheGeps, Bitcaffe and TonimanGalvez. Then as of today not only can you download a new preview of the game, but there's also some footage of it being played below. For those of you that haven't heard of this all time classic before, Turrican was originally released in 1990 by Rainbow Arts and programmed by Manfred Trenz with an incredible soundtrack by Chris Huelsbeck. The game featured great shooting action, powerful weaponry and amazing game play that is still loved to this day.

Here is what the creator says about this rather cool looking Turrican for the MSX1. "I present the new work in progress of my Turrican! First of all the level music has been updated and I have to say that Bitcaffe (aka Gabriel Caffarena) did a really good job. A new main sprite by @TonimanGalvez and finally added collisions with all the bullets. From now on, enemies hit (and ONLY those hit, no missing due to be "pushed" out from the screen) will no longer appear on the game map".
