T4 Funeral is a superb fanmade side-scrolling platformer built with level editor that was included with T2002, another great Turrican fanmade game that is also reviewed on this site (so one could more accurately call the game a “total conversion” of T2002). The game features huge levels, smooth animations, and the same top-notch gameplay that makes Turrican series one 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 that lets you fly. 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 from this site 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 the name “Turrican.” I feel the difficulty level is just right in this one, too – T2002 was a bit too hard for me. With a lot of new graphics, sound effects, and even voice acting, T4 Funeral is worth The game is quite large, owing to high-quality soundtrack and graphics, but the fun is worth it.
