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.

  • Download (see assets below), and unzip 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.


  • 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.


git clone
cd hurrican/Hurrican/src
make clean
make -j12

the zip file is created in the Hurrican folder, not in src.



  • First release on Switch
You can’t perform that action at this time.
