I really wonder if you actually played Flashback. Nevermind then.

The second game fixes all of that, while adding cooler weapons, better bosses, and shoot-em-up stages, all rendered in far superior graphic quality. And the music is awesome.
Makes a 75 to 95 percent change for me. Turrican 1 is far from being garbage. Oh and I never got stuck on the scenery in Turrican 1. Guess I'm just lucky then.
