is reserved for something

The colorful bar at the bottom is by the way not a health bar,
but a heat-meter for your gun.
You can find lot's of powerups. Wheel mode is one of them, and
it can be upgraded with bombs, and even the possibility to jup
with that thing.
This is going to be a Turrican clone for the PSP.
There already is a playable demo, but sadly playable on a PSP
only. The homebrew emuletor PSPE crashes from this game.
You need firmware 1.5. to play.. (This could be false, the information

it as a clone.
Oh, and technically everything shall run smooth.
After two demos, not much is heard about PSP-Turrican. So it
gets the following seal of developement:
