Super Turrican is the first SNES installment in the popular Turrican series and takes the action and graphics to another level, due to the console's power. The game was developed by Factor 5 / Seika in 1993.
Super TurricanSTORY / GAMEPLAY
This is Turrican's debut on the SNES console. You control a super-soldier named Bren McGuire (the same armored hero of the previous Turrican games). Bren is ordered once again to destroy the army of an alien force called "The Machine" who unleashed attacks against the world with just a single cause: Rule! Bren is an armored soldier, a specially trained commando who can accurately shoot and blast foes, jump over numerous obstacles and take out big bosses of any kind and strengths. Bren's main weapon is a devastating laser gun that can be upgraded through orbs found by smashing (or shooting) several bonus boxes and flying objects. Through these upgrade orbs, his gun can be changed into a flame thrower, a bouncing projectiles gun, a "Multiple" that spreads its bullets diagonally, plus more. His armored suit can take many hits until the energy bar drops and lead Bren to his death, but the energy can be refilled by collecting the relevant orbs. This particular suit features a special freezing beam that can help Bren kill enemies that surround him. Our soldier also carries limited blasts that can hit and kill every living being in all 8 directions. Turrican's enemies vary from small wandering aliens to flying objects (and beings) and super huge, tough bosses that aim to make Bren's mission miserable and terminate his plans. But the time limit seems the worst enemy. Yes, each level is timed and you must act and fight quickly until you get to the next level.

The graphics are awesome. The SNES has better graphics than any other version (though the Megadrive/Genesis version -the Mega Turrican- sports great quality). The SNES version features huge sprites and colorful backgrounds combined with smooth animation. The sound is solid with stereo sound FX and some music scores that remind us of the original. This version was developed in 1993, three years after the Amiga and it is technically more advanced since it uses the SNES' Mode 7 graphics technique. The whole package makes the series look better than ever. But besides its technical superiority Super Turrican lacks the Amiga's great intro theme music.

I prefer the SNES version than the Genesis (Megadrive). But still the Amiga version was the best I believe.
