    # Hurrican port for Switch

    This is my Switch port of Hurrican, a freeware jump and shoot game created by Poke53280 that is based on the Turrican game series. Blast your way through nine action-packed levels filled with different enemies and powerups.

    Everything needed to play is already included in the archive.

    Port by @rsn8887.

    # Thanks

    Thanks to Poke53280 team for making such a great game, releasing the source, and making it freeware.

    Thanks to the other developers such as DKS and Pickle for extending the Hurrican source and adding SDL/OpenGL-ES support and more.

    Thanks to ScHlAuChi for telling me about this.

    Thanks to devkitPro for making Switch homebrew possible.

    Thanks to my supporters on Patreon: Andyways, CountDuckula, Jason Crawford, Greg Gibson, Jesse Harlin, Özgür Karter, Matthew Machnee, Milenko, and RadicalR.

    # Installation

    - Download (see `assets` below), and unzip `Hurrican_switch.zip` and copy the contents over to the `/switch/` folder on your sd card, so that you have a folder `/switch/Hurrican` with many folders and files inside.

    # Controls

    - Left analog stick = walk/duck/aim (hold up/down to look)
    - Dpad = walk/duck/aim (hold up/down to look)
    - Y = shoot
    - B = jump
    - X = hold for lightning beam (control angle with stick/dpad left/right)
    - A = powerline
    - R = grenade
    - L = cycle weapon type
    - ZR = smart bomb

    # Current Limitations

    - Don't try to remap buttons in the controls menu, it asks for a button press, but doesn't react to Joycon input. The only way out is to force quit the game with the home button. If you mess up preferences, just delete `/switch/Hurrican/hurrican.cfg`

    - The tutorial level (if you select "Start Tutorial" instead of "Start New Game") currently crashes just after loading.

    # Building

    ```
    git clone https://github.com/rsn8887/hurrican
    cd hurrican/Hurrican/src
    make clean
    make Hurrican_switch.zip -j12
    ```
    the zip file is created in the Hurrican folder, not in src.

    # Changelog

    v1.00

    - First release on Switch

    I am quite sure he will port over crysis sooner or later with this pace.

    Good job on this port! Need to try this.

    I feel like I've seen this picture before. Was this a WiiWare game?

    It’s based on Turrican series for snes and genesis, but it was released for Wii vc too.

    Wow! Thanks for this game! I loved to play this on PC, and now on Switch! I'm a big Turrican fan!
    Btw, any chance of porting AM2R to the Switch too? There is a port for Vita already.

    Hurrican (or the original Turrican) was never released natively for the Wii. I guess you've seen Super Turrican / Super Turrican 2 for Wii VC.

    Need some help here. Game loads up, Intro plays, then while loading level 1 it freezes (ignored button reconfig and tutorial). Tried version 1.01. I am on latest ReiNX and I use a 256GB exFAT SD. Tried multiple times. Direct download via hb app store as well as manually copied to sd. Any ideas???

    Don't use exfat for homebrew.

    Don't use ALBUM to start the game. Hold R over a title to bring up hbloader, and launch the game from there.

    Did try exactly the way you described. STILL not working. I am really desperated. Tried downloading Prince of Persia and this plays without problems. Only Hurrican is always crashing for me...

    Which game are you using to start Hurrican via holding R?

    Edit: whatever it is, try a different game to launch Hurrican via holding R
