The year is 3025 and after the first defeat of Mogul the world was very calm. United Planets Freedom Forces were responsible to keep peace. But everything changed after the Avalon 1 (one of their spaceships) has been attacked by an unknown battle-cruiser that came from deep space. While being the only survivor from this fight, Bren McGuire (the new Turrican), needs to take his revenge against those who killed all his partners. This game is a perfect example of "coin-op like" high quality arcade shooter released on every 8bit/16bit platforms.
It when originally release two years earlier on Amiga and then ST platforms, showed what the 16bit home-computers could do at the time (1991) in terms of graphics and sound, especially the original Amiga version.
The PC versions sports better graphics due to the higher number of colors being used (256) and more detailed backgrounds. The animation is fluid and identical to the Amiga version. The sound is identical to the original Amiga version too.
Again, the MS-DOS) version released a couple of years later (!) running in VGA mode and similar in-quality Amiga sounds (under Sound Blaster 16 or better), but that is years after the original release and of course if you could afford a hi-tech PC at that time
All in all an excellent conversion from the original Amiga classic.
