Super Turrican is the name of two different games in the Turrican series that share the same name.
The first Super Turrican was developed for the NES by series creator Manfred Trenz alone. It is based roughly on the levels of the first two Turrican games, which had not been previously released on the NES, combining them into one game. The game was never released outside Europe. Super Turrican was the only game composed by Manfred Trenz. To create the game’s soundtrack, he used a sound driver programmed by David Whittaker, which he then edited to use with the game.
The second Super Turrican was developed by Factor 5 and published by Seika for the SNES. It plays similarly to Mega Turrican, also developed by Factor 5, and shares a similar visual style. The game has a different set of levels, however, and features a freeze beam in place of the original lightning whip. This Super Turrican videogame was also released on the Virtual Console in Europe and Australia on February 29, 2008, and in North America on March 3, 2008 (not available starting on March 7, 2013 until March 14, 2013).
