Ah, that's good. I guess if you are playing your eyes are more focused on the character than the background.

*Edit* I didn't realize that this was a Turrican spin off.
it isn't officially one, but the gameplay is similar, the music was composed by the same person and the graphical style is very similar as well.

Is it cheaper than super turican?
Super Turrican US: $25
Super Turrican 2 US: $50
Jim Power US: $3

It's pretty unknown and obscure and due to the extreme difficulty, not popular as much. That said Super Turrican and Jim Power music is MUCH better than Super Turrican 2. I didn't check Super Turrican 3 nor the two prequels on the Amiga, tho (Super Turrican is basically the 3rd game and I think all 3 SNES games on the Amiga are actually one, but I could be wrong.)

I should get an amiga too, but they are still quite expensive. Amiga's are more in demand than c64's!

Amiga? Expensive??? But why? I mean I can understand it as far as 1200s are concerned, but 500s going for 50 EUR on the Bay is just insane.

Keoni, if you're ever in Berlin, let me know early in advance, and I may be able to help you (well, assuming that you're going to do some cool stuff with it). Unfortunately I gave away most of my 500s last year, but it'll be ok to ask if I can have one of them back.

Amigas seem pretty interesting. Never owned one though. Why is 50 EUR bad for that model? Are they really common or something?

Yes, the 500 is very common. Over a million were sold in Germany alone.

Ah, ok. Guess there's still a high demand among hobbyist then.

IIRC, personal computers were not popular in North America back in the '80s, for some reasons, and the video game crash of 1983-84 didn't help either I bet.

From what I understand Computers were more popular for gaming in Europe in the 80's. In America it was pretty much all about consoles.

Normally I'd recommend the 1200, because it uses the latest chipset and has a harddrive. But since you are good with soldering, you shouldn't have too much trouble upgrading another model with some sort of IDE interfacing. So get a 500, they're by far the cheapest. Check on German ebay, occasionally you can get one for a budget price.

From what I've heard, they are pretty good for music creation and art stuff too. :) I hear some people even still use them for that! O.O
