Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Turrican series (2 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    various
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             Shooter
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          In the future, mankind will have to deal with many
                  powerful alien species - not all of whom will choose to
                  be friendly.  That is the reason behind the Turrican suit
                  - a one-man set of power armor that turns any Earth Force
                  soldier into a nearly unstoppable killing machine.  These
                  games are either ported from or inspired by the original
                  series of British arcade shooters that were such big hits
                  on the almighty Commodore 64 and Amiga computers.

IMPRESSIONS:      The difference between these two games is like night and
                  day.  The first is a great-looking but poor-playing port
                  straight from the Amiga, which looses just about every
                  nice feature (including the Chris Huelsbeck music) in the
                  the process.  The second, developed specifically for the
                  G/MD platform, is one helluva shooter that can hold its
                  own with the best of them.  I agree with Eidolon when he
                  says, " Mega Turrican, which is far better."

VARIATIONS:       Turrican (1991 by the Code Monkeys, marketed by Accolade
                    and rereleased by Ballistix - fight your way through
                    thirteen extremely difficult, action-packed stages with
                    huge bosses - the game engine shares some similarities
                    to that used by Universal Soldier)
                  Mega Turrican (1995 by Factor 5, marketed by Data East -
                    the change in software houses is telling - with its
                    anime-style cinemas, impressive graphics and sound, and
                    gameplay that subtly increases in difficulty instead of
                    being hard all at once, this is without doubt one of
                    the most enjoyable 16-bit shooters that I have ever had
                    the pleasure of playing and possibly the best Turrican
                    game for any platform)

Well, actually "Mega Turrican" was not developed especially for SEGA Mega Drive. It was also first released on Amiga platform and was called Turrican 4 (or 3, I don't remember exactly) and then ported bit-to-bit to MD. The only thing they changed was the name (added Mega). And Amiga music was 100 times better, of course. You should check your information before misinforming the readers.

Mega Turrican on SEGA MD = Turrican 3 on AMIGA but music on MD is worse, the rest is the same.
