Mega Turrican is considered to be the third main entry in the Turrican series and the first to be made without the involvement of series creator Manfred Trenz. It shows, for better or worse, thanks to the game's more linear, "Japanese-style" stage design and the removal of the Surround weapon in favor of a Super Castlevania IV-inspired grappling beam.
Sprites of Mario and Sonic seemingly frozen in carbonite are found in the VRAM tiles of the first stage. These were to appear shortly after the first miniboss, but were not visible until the 2021 Director's Cut release.
