Graphics AmigaBoth Amiga and ST versions feature 16-colour graphics. On the Amiga the 32-bit colour mode was avoided on purpose: according to Julian Eggebrecht:
"because 32-colour mode would use up far too much memory. There'd be too much processing time to run it at 50 frames as well. Anyway, we weren't going primarily for presentation. From the start what we were aiming for was excellent gameplay, so when it came to choosing between 50 frames, parallax, animation and 32 colours, it was the colours that had the lowest priority." (Source: The One #28, 1990/12)With this reduction of colours 50 frames per second were achieved on the Amiga.
MusicThe game's music was originally written for the Amiga using the TFMX sound format - some of it actually contains 7 channels! This was actually achieved by the technique used to play tracker modules on the Atari ST, on which the channels had to be mixed by software rather than hardware like on the Amiga. The Amiga 7 channels sound routines was invented by ST music programmer Jochen Hippel and was adapted by Chris Hülsbeck for the Turrican title tune. Basically the method uses one hardware channel of the Amiga soundchip to play 4 software mixed channels, resulting in 7 independent channels.
SoundtrackA soundtrack CD exists and, as of 2002, can be ordered via SynSONIQ Records. It contains original music from Turrican 1-3 (Amiga) and the console versions as well as the medley from Chris Hülsbeck's album Shades.
