“Turrican” is delightfully entertaining but the gameplay is very difficult.

It is in the same realm as “Metroid” but the inability to shoot upwards and the randomness of enemy movement makes some very simple enemies impossible to beat, and there doesn’t seem to be an option to save gameplay so it’s more of an endurance test than anything else.

You take hits from all sides, some enemies can go through walls, and there are many routes and dead-ends on a time limit so it’s kinda like “Where do I go? Leave me alone! I don’t have time to explore this vast, lush world while things I can’t kill keep hitting me!”

I actually just barely got to the end of level 2.
