Mega Turrican - Stage 1-2 (GEN) (PRC399)


Source: Mega Turrican - Stage 1-2 (Genesis)

"It's a shame about Truxton, i'd thought it get some attention. Not to worry, i suppose the bright side, is that i get to pick another tune. In this case, Mega Turrican, a game with a seriously underrated soundtrack (No wonder Chris Hulsbeck is often hailed as the top ten Amiga composers).

The game, like i said is Mega Turrican, and the track name is Stage 1-2. As you can tell, there is no composition titles, it goes by stage number. I think during a re-release, there might have been titles. All i know, is that it officially goes by stage number. So in this case, Stage 1 - Act 2.

Composed by Chris Hulsbeck in 1993, it's one of the best uses of synthesis in the Sega Genesis lifespan, alongside loads of games. This game often goes ignored, which is sad, because there is some amazing gems here. Most of the soundtrack, is 80's rock. Think Van Halen, but with more guitars, than synths (I'm pretty much comparing it to their hit Jump, which is a bit of a whack comparison, but it's more or less that style. 80's synthpop/rock kind of thing). Other tracks use a lot more ambience, and soundscapes for the darker moments in the game, but it's mostly a rock thing. Point being, it's a great soundtrack, and this one is one of my favourites from the game.

Here's the video:

And my own custom made MIDI, as always.

Good luck to you all! Let's hope someone has interest in this one."
