T4 Funeral is a superb fanmade side-scrolling platformer built with the level editor included in T2002, another great Turrican fanmade game that is also reviewed on this site (so one could more accurately call this a "total conversion" of T2002). The game features huge levels, smooth animations, and the same top-notch gameplay that makes the Turrican series some of the best shooters ever made. |
There is no plot to speak of – just shoot everything in sight. There is a lot of power-ups to use, including the very cool jetpack. All the levels are newly created for this game, with all-new graphics and sounds to match. These levels look and play great, although some background graphics are not as detailed or "3D-looking" (e.g. with appropriate shadows) as they could be.
If you have played Turrican before (and if you haven't, download Turrican II and come back after you agree with me that it's great ;)), T4 Funeral is a well-made labor of love that is worthy of its pedigree. I feel the difficulty level is just right in this one, too – T2002 was a bit too hard for me. The game is quite a large download, owing to high-quality soundtrack and graphics, but the fun is worth it.
