A bit before Turrican3 1993 Megaturrican
was released. It should have been an amigagame at first, but out of
technical reasons it was programmed for the Megadrive first, and then
converted to the amiga.
Megaturrican beats Turrican3 in the points grafics and gameplay.
The Megadrive can show 32 more colours at once than the amiga, this
makes a big difference.
The levelbackgrounds look better as well.
And most important, it is not as easy as Turrican3, the monsters have
a better resistance, and some bosses act in another way...
Another difference is findable in the level, in which you jump from
girder to girder - the helicopters start to move suddenly!
Only the music is on the amiga much better, the soundhardware, which
SEGA intalled into the Megadrive, is a shame.
It seems, as if Megaturrican has one level less, than Turrican3, but
this is wrong. In Megaturrican the missing level is a secret, which
is openend when you collect all the diamonds of level1, and leave this
level with a 00 in your score.......sometimes at least.....
