Rave reviewed with a staggering 95% and often referred to as 'the best Speccy game ever!', Turrican 2 is the ultimate shoot-'em-up played over eleven levels with varying action throughout. One level you run along being the cybernetic Turrican, blasting everything that moves, and the next you're clambering into a space ship and hurtling through a few scrolling levels!

It's not an easy game. The huge variety of aliens take their jobs (ie, killing you off) very seriously - especially the end-of-level foes which are deadly (but stunning to see). Turrican 2's graphics are really something to behold. They're colourful, large and move very well considering how much can be going on on-screen at one time. Quite simply, if you're a shoot-'em-up fanatic, there's one only game you need put on your shopping list and that's Turrican 2.
