Classic Shooter Little less known but more than fun shooter about a Terra formation pilot on a quest to stop Microsol from destroying the galaxy. Battle robot facilities, alien armadas, space stations, and even spacefood. Yes. Amazing story though is not the complete version.
Slight quirk with ship upgrade menu - ship follows touch mode =default When I select new game & go to upgrade menu not all of the items in a sub menu can be selected. Effects shield/generator & both sidekicks - get a sound but item not respond to selection. It's seems to cure if you change keyboard options (touch mode) but resets on next game startup & need to reapply tweak. When go to save no keyboard show up to add description neither text on what should be OK & SAVE buttons
Tyrian rocks Use to play this on my old pc. classic game and never gets old :)))
Awesomeness Loved this game back in the day, and this is a good port. Couple of little niggles like a few menu options don't quite work right, you need to amend the controller options otherwise some ship upgrades won't select, and the in game control touch sensitivty isn't perfect, but otherwise still great to play.
Needs ep 5 on all difficulties Needs the 2k update added I played on every difficulty and couldn't get episode 5 and the hxc class c shield, really annoying, but everything else is pretty darn epic
A fun free vertical shooter. I usually am awful at them but easy mode is just right for really bad players while the harder difficulties are right at home for other fans. Its a marvelous game and the fact its the best free game on the market is a testiment to is greatness.
This version can let you change the controls back like you had the classical way.
For those who complained this is how you can do it:
Under the Tyrian Game go to Options-> Keyboard there you can get the classical control scheme layout.
Further options for that are available in the option just before Opentyrian boots up.
