DescriptionThree-headed demon Morgul has been influencing people's dreams to create nightmares, but more recently these nightmares have become real. Only Turrican can save them in this fast paced side scrolling shoot-em up. It features 5 worlds and 13 levels of challenging gameplay.
Gameplay is conceptually simple: just jump, shoot and explore. However, this game puts a lot of emphasis on finding and using the 10 different weapons Turrican can collect.

The Press Says
CoverThe cover art for the Game Boy, Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16 was painted by Julie Bell and is entitled Turrican.
Player characterThe player character was originally much thinner, but feedback from a British associate ("too girly") convinced the developers to make a last minute change. The original character can be seen on the Amiga back cover.
ReferencesThe title screen of Turrican was obviously inspired by the cover of the Manowar album Kings of Metal.
RemakeIn June 2007, a freeware Windows remake with the title Hurrican was released.
TitleThe name Turrican comes from the Italian name "Turricano", which the developers found in a phone book of Düsseldorf (Germany).
