In the days of the Commodore Amiga, Turrican was a must-have video game and every kid at our school had it. 

Turrican was famous for running and gunning your way through levels using creative weapons, destructive bombs and sometimes even a grappling hook! It was a great series and now you finally get the chance to relive this great series on one release from Inin Games.

Since the end of January, I have been playing Turrican Flashback and getting lost in the nostalgia of the Turrican series.

With your £25 Switch eShop purchase, you will become the proud owner of 4 Turrican games:

  • Turrican 
  • Turrican II: The Final Fight, 
  • Mega Turrican
  • Super Turrican
Inin Games have gone to work on the original games and have reworked the original control scheme to attempt to streamline the series and makes them more approachable than ever before for the modern gamer.

Innin have also placed the ability to customize your experience with shaders, wallpapers and different display options such as scanlines etc. There is also now a Rewind feature and the ability to use save states to make things a little more forgiving than the tough as old boots original games.
Whilst these improvements are great and allow you to customise your experience to a certain extent it does fall a little short of what I would expect in terms of some additional extras on the history of the Turrican series. The original control manual scans and some original scans of the design docs would have been fantastic but alas it was not to be.
So, how do these games play in 2021?
Well let me just tell you one thing, Turrican is still a great series of video games and Turrican 2 is my personal favourite and probably the most fun of the package.

Let me just say that this is not a love letter to the Turrican series but instead it's a fantastic upscaled conversion of these fantastic Turrican games that fits really well with the Nintendo Switch.
I love these Turrican games as they meld run n gun with a slight Metroid flavour to it. Me and my kids have been enjoying the challenge of taking on these video gaming classics on the Switch during the lockdown period in the UK and I'm so glad to get the opportunity to play these classics again on the Nintendo Switch.

My only small gripe is that more wasn't done with the overall package as it feels like there were more Turrican treats that could have been added for the price of £24.99 on the eShop.
Right I'm off to Run & Gun
with a massive smile on my face!
