Its unique mix of exploration, atmosphere and blistering non-stop action pushed the genre forward and set the benchmark for years to come, and since its original release in 1991 has proudly been supported by one of the most enthusiastic and loyal fanbases in the medium.
And of course, when talking Turrican, you have to mention the incredible musical score by living legend Chris Huelsbeck which has been echoing in play-rooms, venues and even symphony halls for three decades!
