    The Final Fight

    So you think you know about the hidden secrets & treasures, you know about the 7 mega-weapons, like the flame thrower, you know how TURRICAN moves and looks like, you know about the huge mazes and 5 different worlds spread over 1500 screens, so what don't you know? ...YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET!

    Du glaubst also, Du weißt alles über die versteckten Extras, alles über die 7 Superwaffen, wie z.B. den Flammenwerfer, Du weißt wie TURRICAN aussieht und sich bewegt, Du kennst die riesigen Labyrinthe, die 5 verschiedenen Welten auf über 1500 Screens - das glaubst Du ...DOCH DAS WAR NUR DER ANFANG!

    Si tu es persuadé, que les supers armes comme par exemple le lance-flammes, les bonus, les immenses labyrinthes, les 5 mondes et leurs 1500 tableaux n'ont plus de secret pour toi, si tu crois que tu sais à quoi ressemble TURRICAN et comment il se déplace, jette donc un coup d'oeil ä Turrican II... TURRICAN I N'ETAIT QU'UN DEBUT!
