Turrican for SEGA Genesis
Run-and-gun shooting game from the German programming team Factor 5.
Guide your hero through five different worlds where you will be
confronted by various perils. Three of these worlds extend over three
levels, the remaining two worlds over two levels. Ever-changing enemies
try everything they can to destroy our hero. Players have to hone the
skills and use their weapons skillfully in order to survive the varied
levels. To aid you in your battle you may gather up further weapons and
other extras on your way, such as forceshields and extra lives. Examine
every level closely to find new surprises and useful items everywhere.
The game's background story deals with the three-headed Morgul, a
hulking beast that lives a secluded life in his kingdom. This Morgul is
the cause of all the fears and nightmares of mankind -- and it's up to
the player to track it down and destroy him.
