Turrican for the Cell Phone

Contra
01.05.06
Hello, I've been looking into the new Turrican cell phone game for awhile, and I am getting a new phone soon. I am on Verizon, so can anyone tell me if there are ANY Verizon phones that support this game? I was hoping the RAZR would, but any other newer phone or if there is even one phone that would be great. If not I'm outta luck and I gotta pray the make one for the GBA or some other handheld =(

There is a site where I saw the compatible phones, yet I cannot tell which are Verizon or not (if any).

Here is the site where I found the compatible phones:

http://downloads.carphonewarehouse.com/games/260563/Turrican.htm

So if there IS a Verizon phone on that list, (RAZR hopefully being the top choice), can you please give me the MOST RECOMMENDED (newest, latest, greatest, blah blah blah) phone to get from Verizon (remember, RAZR would be first) to get that supports this game? Sorry if that confused anyone.

Thx in advance to anyone who can help =D

The Motorola Razr runs Turrican (the 2005 version, the 2004 version is only included in the Siemens M65), but only a graphically cut down version (small resolution, no backgrounds). I don't know which phones can run it with all graphics.

Wow really!? That is awsome!! I don't mind about the graphical issue, you give me a decent looking Turrican that doesn't look like a stick figure*coughnotthegameboyversioncough* with shooting the crap outta enemies with power ups, bosses, COLORED graphics, and all that other good stuff that makes Turrican, well, Turrican, then I'm happy. I'm actually going to be picking up a Motorola RAZR sometime tomorrow =D

Just one more thing, where can I buy this 2005 version of Turrican? Is it the same one as the link I gave above or can it be bought somewhere else (a different website)? I wasn't sure if the link I gave supported that particular Turrican (I don't know if that was the 2004 Turrican, or the 2005). If you could tell me which one that was that would be great. Anything else worth mentioning would also be appreciated. Thanks! Oh, I live in the U.S, so if we could avoid any German sites that would also help. You see, unlike you lucky people who can speak German and still have Amiga's with all three Turricans, I'm just some American who was awed with Contra and Super Metroid...

...Then Turrican came along...

Your link leads to Turrican 2005 (you can't buy 2004 seperately, it's included in the Siemens M65). Game Boy Turrican is better though (in everything but the graphics).

Oh, now I see. Huh, is there any name for the RAZR? For compatible phones it says V3, V180, E1000, E1000M, etc. Which one of those in Motorola is the RAZR? In other words, which is the codename for the RAZR? That's why I wasn't sure if the RAZR was compatible or not. Ok, so I am getting the Motorola RAZR today, and I am expecting that the Turrican game from my given link will work. You says it's worse than the gameboy one though, huh? Sure cell phone controls are crappy, but the game looks really great.... And alot more appealing from the gameboy one...

Well, thx for all the help.

Aw man there is something else that was just brought up to my attention: How much does the Turrican game from CarPhoneWarehouse.com (my given link) cost in US dollars? I can't tell, it seems to be in European money or something but I'm not sure. Also, I live in the US, so buying Turrican for my RAZR from that site shouldn't be a problem right? It says to buy from either Ireland (or something), or the UK, so I am just checking that I will have no issues purchasing the game for my RAZR. Sorry for all these questions, and thanks

Hi Contra!
Get listed at THQ, you can buy it directly from THQ America! They even sent me the information when the game is available in germany (it already is! It runs great on Nokia N70 and Nokia 7650 wich has a joystick!!!).
I bought an "old" Nokia 7650 without contract at ebay and change my simcard for gaming!!!

Well. erm...
What is it with those cell phone games...? Sure, it's funny that a nowadays' phone has better hardware than the old consoles, but...
That itsi bitsi blurry screens and that really BAD keypads on that phones...
I really can't even imagine how it's possible to play a fast game like turrican on such phone keys...
Or are there any joystick/gamepad adapters for cell phones available yet?

Robert

Usually it really isn't possible to play fast games.

Ok Megamom, so how do I buy it? Can you give the direct link? Look, I know cell phones are kinda crap for playing games, but this is the only portable Turrican to interest me (so far), and incase Turrican does not return (and man he BETTER), then atleast I have his great cellular game to remember him by. Let's just keep it at that.

So then, does it work with a RAZR at this site to purchase it? Anyways, if you can give me the link, I'd gladly give it a go. Thx.

Hi Contra! Is was a bit difficult to find out if a page is american or british. For america i found the ign-link: http://wireless.ign.com. It should work with your RAZR, the problem is that you always shut your game because the controllers are so damn small and fingers are as big as fingers are... but there is a little music with it any you can chose missions. I also see it as an image of turrican, just to remind me to turn on my Amiga 500 at he weekend. If you can open www.tagamt.de, you have a wonderful turrican picture (this page is under construction for years). I use it as desktop picture...

Sorry, itīs http://www.targamt.de/ The side is called "Home of the Master"
Contra
03.07.06
*sigh*

Megamom, I typed in turrican on the search at the ign wireless site; it says nothing about purchasing the cell phone game for my RAZR. Any help? I'm DYING to buy this game!!

That Home of the Master is really cool! Who made it?
Contra
05.07.06
any help, please?

Sorry Contra! This answer is late and maybe it dosnīt help you at all :-(
I found http://getitnow.vzwshop.com for your mobile, at least you can get a version of Sonic the hedgehog there... In germany, we can buy Turrican mobile at www.jamba.de, it also has an international offer, called jamster, but Turrican is not available there. Tomorrow I will call jamba and ask if it is possible to wap the game to you or to put it to the jamster-portal. Iīll try my very best, because I have waited 2 years to have a running version on my mobile...
I donīt know who created the Home Of The Master, I followed links from nemmelheim and found it one day...
Contra

Thanks for the reply. I guess I can live with Sonic.... Lol.

It's fine, I just didn't grow up with Turrican like everyone else here. Thanks for trying to put Turrican in that international Jamster thing.... Maybe there is still hope......?

Well whoever made that Home of the Master, it is awsome =D

I just called jamba.de, they canīt send the game to USA, but if you contact jamster.com (mail or freecall-number)and tell them that you want a thq-game that is offered at jamba.de, it should be possible because they are the same company! Keep trying and good luck!!!
