Turrican

Roll up superheroes and get set for a blast-'em-up of epic proportions. On the full-price side, Turrican was a rollercoaster success, and I see no reason why it shouldn't repeat that on the budget side.

The evil tyrant Morgul has returned to his secluded kingdom, bringing terror into the hearts of the poor citizens. Only one man can banish the evil from the land once more, and that is you in the form of Turrican. Armed to the teeth with all of the latest hi-tech weaponry, you must take on Morgul's minions over five totally different worlds.

Three of the worlds are spread over three levels, with the remaining two set over two. As you can see, there's more than enough room for action and, boy, you're going to get it.

At all times, you must scout around for power-ups and bonusses, you'll certainly need them against some of these bad guys.

Superb graphics and some very atmospheric sound effects make this blast one not to be missed if you know what's good for you. Activate your mines, send out your flashes, use the mega-fire option, just do anything to rid the world of Morgul. And remember to come back a hero!
