    Turrican was a bit underwhelming to me because I ended up playing it *after* Turrican II. However, Chris Huelsbecks music for the first level had a feature that was very interesting to me: an interweaving chord glissando, possibly inspired by Xenakis' 'Metastasis'. In Turrican, this was an interesting combination of the tonal and the atonal. I later used the same type of glissando for the final boss of 140.

    I haven't played this for years, and wanted to try a quick game. I lost my third life on level 2.

    There is a hiscore cheat 'Bluesmobil' that gives 99 lives. Maybe worth a try?

    I tried the BLUESMOBIL cheat and played through level 1-2/5, but then the game hung.

    My floppy may have a read error on it. It hung after a couple of levels. Too bad.
