A solid, technically impressive action game developed by Factor 5 for the Turrican series. Semi-notoriously got downsized from a 6mbit cartridge to a 4mbit one during development, leading to the game being somewhat unfinished. (It's still not as bad as Super Double Dragon in that regard, though.)

In 2018, a fully restored version of the game, entitled Super Turrican: Director's Cut, was bundled in alongside the sequel with the Super Nt, an FPGA-based reproduction of the SNES developed by Analogue.

Hmmm...
To do:
Investigate Super Turrican: Director's Cut, and find out what's unused in the original version. Given the development, there's bound to be at least a decent amount of stuff.
