Hi Jacob, as I said appologies.

usualy I try not to discuss low vision games on an audio gaming list precisely for this reason, however in this case I felt the contrast was important.


As to your friends, tell them to try http://www.turricanforever.de/ that site has all information about the game, all the extra levels and details on how to run them, pluss details of other Turrican windows remakes such as the graphically extremely appealing and very complex hurrican, which has features like more weapons, more puzles, more up to date graphics and more complex gameplay.

Also, for a really nice experience you might want to check the soundbase there, sinse music has always been a major part of Turrican, and there are about as many fan produced music tracks as there are levels for the game, many of which are absolutely amazing!

if I ever have the time to tinker with bgt and do something side scroller like, I actually had a plan to have a go at audio Turrican, especially sinse the creator has given permission for the original sounds, and name to be used in remakes so long as they are free, ---- assuming Tom doesn't beat me to it first of course ;D.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

No worries - was just wondering, and will, honestly most likely pass this on to some of my sighted friends, who might appreciate it, but FWIW, I am 100% blind, so I'll stick to other, entirely audio games...<smile>

Stay well

T2002, like original Turrican is an entirely graphical game.

If you have enough vision to play 2D side scrollers with symplistic high contrast graphics, it is quite accessible, ---- especially sinse you can alter the in game options by just edditing the conf file in notepad

however, if you don't have this degree of vision the answer is a resounding no, and it's very unlikely that it will ever be so, ---- one reason why I'm so interested in having a similar experience accessible to everyone.

I'm very sorry if I didn't make this point clear in the initial male.

I am indeed registered blind, but have some residual vision which I've been using to play some graphical games for years.

i cannot read print (which puts out a lot of games), nor can I play things which are complex and 3D, sinse the spacial relations with lack of vision get far too much, but i am lucky enough that I can stil play games like Turrican, prince of persia, mega man and Mario.

I'm sorry if this wans't absolutely clear from my first message.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
