Especially not The Great Bath.

...Hell, that's probably the song that got me addicted to the Turrican games in the first place.

Great choice. I think the one before that, "Secret Dungeons" takes the cake for me. Can't get enough of that one.

Yeah, that one's pretty damned good too.

Then there's also Traps, 1-2... a fun tune.

I mostly like Mega Turrican for overall music, though. Can't beat 1-1... not even Super Turrican's remix of it.

also, what a way to start posting after a year. =P

Haha, welcome back I guess.

Yeah, I hear a lot of people like Mega's music. Overall I'd say Turrican II (Amiga) and Super are my favorites. Super Turrican II is really cool, the style seems a little different, but it's pretty unique coming from the SNES.

Hulsebeck = The master.

Heh, Super Turrican 2's music was pretty damned dark compared to the rest of the series. I love the Submerged theme, though... probably because I heard it before I knew it was ST2.

The game itself is the most boring of the series though...

I thought Turrican 2 was considered the best, actually... H?lsbeck did pretty damn good with the Genesis's hardware, considering how many people seem to hate the system's sound system.

Yeah Super Turrican 2 has way too many weird/unfun levels. Like the FPS hovercraft ones and crap. The submerged theme though, mother of all that is holy that one is powerful!

I really wish more of the series had space shooting levels like Turrican II did. Of course I've never played the first or third for the Amiga, maybe they did?

I think the first does... UAE4ALLPSP won't load past the first stage so I don't know.

...And it crashes in World 2's underwater part. Sigh.

The first Super Turrican is pretty nice, though. Lots of fun, and the first I played.

Turrican 3 is the same as Mega Turrican, but sounds and looks a bit worse imo...

Awesome.

My favorite songs (from the Turrican series) include nearly every track from Mega Turrican/Turrican 3, and a handful from Super Turrican.

And one or two from Turrican 2.

Yeah, Super was my first. Really nostalgic game for me. I actually own a copy of Super Turrican II, pretty rare in the US ... though, yeah the game isn't too great.

Speaking of UAE, I really wish there was a good way to edit the controls. It's pretty hard playing some of those games on a laptop keyboard.

Now that I think of it, the factory stages in ST are probably my favorites from that game.

Let me guess T2's favorites: Loading theme and The Great Bath?

I remember my dad would claim that 1-3 is based off of some rock/metal song (from Super). I wouldn't doupt it, I have to wonder if Hulsebeck was a metal fan at sometime?

The really intense songs are incredible. 3-1 and 4-2!

1-3's is the same as MT's 1-2, actually... one of the few songs that Super Turrican does better.

Did he say what song he thought it was based off of?

Heh.
Speaking of such things, wasn't the Turrican title screen based off some Manowar album cover?

Thought so. I mean, the resemblance is too obvious when side-by-side.

And then with song resemblances, I'm pretty sure a couple songs were taken by/inspired from the Transformers or Aliens series. I don't really know, nor could I point them out.

By the way, have you guys played this game? It's seriously pretty much an all out spiritual successor to the Turrican series. Really awesome.

Actually, I'd never even heard of that gaime until now... I'll grab it when I'm not feeling lazy.
