Great platformer, although the graphics weren't very consistant. A toughie as well!

That giant robotic glove still appears in my nightmares. Very difficult and long game, and the sequel was slightly better.

This was one of my favorite st-fm games. The game also has a load of hidden areas to find which is one of the features that gives the game it's lastability. The playability is superb and the music was great as well. The game gets more disturbing as you play on, but that's one of the best features of the game. An excellent game.

Classic ST gaming. This set a standard.

I remeber playing this with infinite lives, and, despite not really dying a lot, it still took me some 6 hours to finish. The game was huge. Great music (especially in the beginning of the second "world") and I loved that flame thrower.

this is the hardest of the turrican trilogy, so I found it alot more satisfying to finish. it made the way for tuzza II, so it deserves alot of praise. play it now.

Not a bad game but I just prefer the second part.

Is this just the best ST game ever or what?! Superb graphics, superb music, superb gameplay. Utterly wonderful :)

Excellent game and some of Chris Huelsbeck's finest moments musically. Some of the levels were a bit "vague" though compared to the sequel, which seemed to know EXACTLY what was going on.....still a good game though
