Target Acquired: Turrican Flashback

Turrican Flashback was developed by Factor 5, the studio behind the Amiga ports of the first two games in the Turrican series, and developers of the Turrican series sequels, and also the developers behind the popular Star Wars: Rogue Squadron trilogy. Turrican Flashback offers four classic games in the Turrican series, including the original Turrican, Turrican II: The Final Fight, Mega Turrican, and Super Turrican. The first two games were seminal titles in the eurostyle shooter genre were some of the best graphical, audio, and gameplay showcases available on the Commodore 64 and Amiga systems, which led to several follow-ups in the ensuing years... but the series went by the wayside once the 3D era began. This collection offers four of those classic games and adds modern niceties like save states, a rewind feature, and the ability to add scanlines and curvature to simulate CRT displays.

The game is now available for Switch via eShop and PS4 via PSN. Check our coverage here.
