Rainbow Arts £8.95;
Amiga version reviewed Issue 35; ACE rating 912

The original version of this arcade adventure was perhaps the best arcade blast yet seen on the Amiga. The quality of gameplay and presentation were as near to arcade perfect as any game of its genre. The Spectrum version cannot hope to emulate that quality. Limitations aside, Rainbow Arts have successfully managed to cram in all the features of the 16-bit version and although this inevitably makes Turrican a multi-load, this is of little consequence. Graphics are colourful (if a little blocky), move well and the play area is huge. The internal speaker is used with successful results and the game as a whole whilst perhaps not groundbreaking, retains the playability of the original.
