In the future, mankind will have to deal with many powerful alien species - not all of whom will choose to be friendly. That is the reason behind the Turrican suit - a one-man set of power armor that turns any Earth Force soldier into a nearly unstoppable killing machine. The Turrican games are either ported from or inspired by the original series of British arcade shooters that were such big hits on the almighty Commodore 64 and Amiga computers.

This first outing for the Turrican series on the Genesis is a great-looking but poor-playing port straight from the Amiga, which looses just about every nice feature (including the Chris Huelsbeck music) in the the process, Mega Turrican which was coded by Factor 5 is far better. In Turrican you must fight your way through thirteen extremely difficult, action-packed stages with huge bosses - the game engine shares some similarities to that used in Universal Soldier.
