This game is so difficult. Especially the fact where I just slam into a bullet.

Turrican - 3,248,480 - ALL!

Playing on a MD + Power Base, game set to 50hz (which I believe to be the way it's intended to play, despite the bars).

TRG. PAUSE set to ON (ain't know when you'll need WC or phone rings :wink: )

Well, the game was also released in the US, and was developed for NTSC (hence the bars), so I think it's intended for 60Hz.

But anyway, who wants to sell me this game? I've been looking for it for ages, but somehow it always slips through my hands... :oops:

It wasn't to my knowledge. Any evidence of this?

Super Aleste is a 1992 game by Compile, and they already were "adjusting" properly to PAL format: what I mean is that PAL Super Aleste is correctly adjusted: music is identic to the Japanese counterpart and the gameplay runs at almost comparable speed. If you try to play that PAL cart on 60hz, you'll get an innatural velocized "70hz" game.

Now, Power Strike II is a later game and the music just doesn't sound correct to me when I play it 60hz. Therefore I believe the european version to be adjusted to PAL format correctly.

edit: also see this thread about S.Aleste speed issue:

by the way, if a "cart only" is fine for you, I can redirect you to a seller.

I remember reading once that it was available in the US through mail order from Sega, and that the cover was entirely black & white. I'll try to find more info on that.

Oh, you mean that. You're confusing this game with Power Strike 1 / Aleste, which was indeed available in the USA with the bw cover.

I had figured so. :wink:
