confronted by various perils. In the middle of the game he has to

HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
General information: The game is played with joystick and keys.
Owners of an Amiga may use a joystick with two independent fire
buttons. This is explained below.
Joystick up: Player jumps. If he is in the gyroscope mode, he will
transform back to normal again.
Joystick down: Player ducks away, e.g. from enemies.
Joystick down and press space: The player will transform into a
gyroscope. While in this state the player is invincible and will
detroy enemies on touch. The gyroscope spins automatically, and can
only be directed to move left or right with the joystick. This shape
also allows you to pass through narrow corridors. Turrican may
transorm into a gyroscope as often as he wants to. Only in the
gyroscope mode he can place mines... The mine is placed on the ground
and explodes shortly afterwards. Various enemies around can be dealt
with in this manner.
Joystick left/right: Moves player left/right.
Keeping the fire button drpressed: The player can activate a flash of
lightning (Surround) and may direct it (as long as the firebutton is
held), by moving the joystick left (lightning rotates anti-clockwise)
or right (lightning rotates clockwise). The lightning can be of
different lengths. At the beginning of the game, it stretches over
half the width of the screen. By gathering up extras it can be
extended to stretch over the whole width of the screen.
Pressing firebutton briefly: Player fires.
The multiple shot can be increased twice in strength by collecting the
right symbols. That means in the end this weapon has 5 shots.
The laser has a high penetration rate, making it very effective when
fighting against several enemies simultaneously. The laser fires
horizontally, and can be increased in strength by up to 5 times by
gathering the corresponding symbols. The laser will then increase in
width and become more effective.
This shot can be increased in strengthy by up to three times. Very
efficient in narrow passages or caves. When twice in strength, the
balls burst into smaller balls bouncing back from the walls.
C64, SPECTRUM: SPACE BAR
Releases two energy beams, moving right and left over the full height
of the screen. All enemies in range will be destroyed. Should an
obstacle bar the way, the beam will be terminated.
Pressing the fire button and SPACE (or second firebutton)
simultaneously the super weapon is activated. Once per life Turrican
can activate this weapon. It is the most effective weapon as all
weapon systems are activated simultaneously. The window at the bottom
left indicates whether this is still available.
Pressing CTRL: Pauses game

Yellow - SMART BOMB
Touching this symbol destroys all smaller opponents on the screen.
Once the player has gathered up 100 diamonds, he receives 'CONTINUE',
i.e. has the chance to continue the game after all lives have been
lost. The maximum no. of CONTINUES is 5 (that means there are exactly
599 diamonds hidden). You can view the number of CONTINUES at the
bottom left. NOTE: There are no CONTINUES when the game is started.
The player has 3 lives at the start of each game. He can lose them in
1. Time, indicated on the display runs out. The screen display will
announce TIME OUT.
2. The player has lost all of his energy. A loss of energy occurs
every time the player touches an enemy or is hit by enemy fire.
3. The player falls into an abyss.
If you lose a life the number of energy beams will default to 3.
Surround, multiple, bounce and laser will be reduced - if not already
at minimun strength.
The player can gain the following information from the display (from
left to right):
* Number of lives. * Number of energy beams.
* Number of CONTINUES. * Score.
* Time. * Energy (above score).
* Number of diamonds.
