Turrican II came out first on the Amiga and then the C64 version followed


Graphically, it made a leap ahead although the core-gameplay remained similar

Review - This Action Pack includes Turrican 1 & 2 as well as the side-scrolling shooter X-Out and the over-head soccer game Kick Off.

At the time when the Amiga was going strong in Europe, Turrican use to be well known by the 16 bit gaming community.

The series was successful in bringing competitive graphics (Factor 5 knew how to push the Amiga hardware) with addictive gameplay, a fact that proved that it was possible to have console-like games in the Amiga lirbrary. In fact, Turrican proved to be so popular that it eventually landed on the major 8 bit and 16 bit consoles of the time from the Nes to the Mega Drive and the Super Nintendo. There was even a 3D version in the works but that one never materialized to this day.

Bottom line: A very rare complilation with a few milestones, but not sure what Kick Off is doing in there....8/10
