Name that Turrican clone

Hi everyone,

I was hoping someone could help me remember the name of an old arcade game I first saw while I was on holiday many years ago. I call it a 'Turrican clone' but it's likely that it was made before Turrican. Anyway it's a futuristic shooty platform game where you play a red cyber robot type dude much like in Turrican, but there's less scope for climbing vertically as there is with Turrican. Each time you completed a mission you'd get the choice of which planet to visit next a bit like in Parasol Stars.

I think it was probably an arcade-only game. I wished at the time that I had it for the Amiga, but I don't think it was ever released for that platform. Any ideas?

Hey, you don't waste any time, thanks! I've been wracking my brains on and off for years trying to get to the bottom of this.

Soldier of Light didn't sound familiar so I looked it up at coinop.org and found this info...

Apparently it's also known as Xain'd Sleena - that's what the version I played was called, but it's the same game.

Now where did I put Mame?

Hey, you're right! You learn something new every day.

Here it is: http://www.amigagames.com/gage/s/soldieroflight.html

I'll have to get the Amiga version too.

Oh by the way I just realised you have a whole forum just for 'name that game' posts like this one. Sorry for not using it.
