Exhibition riots

Factor 5 presented a Turrican II demo on a computershow in Cologne in 1991. Only 900 copies were available for the public and overwhelming demand caused riots on the show with two people wounded.

Extra points

Music

The game's music was originally written for the Amiga using the TFMX sound format - some of it actually contains 7 channels!

References

  • In one of the shoot-em-up levels (just before the vertical rocks), a heli with a "KATAKIS LIVES" banner appears, shooting it results in a nice reward.
