The Terminator Description

A video game first released in 1992 based on the popular 1984 film of the same name. It was coded by Probe Software and released by Virgin Software on all the Sega video game consoles available at the time.

The Terminator is an action shooter game. The main character, Kyle Reese, traverses through levels that closely parallel the movie's environment. In all levels, the main character has a jump and has various weapons throughout the game. The first level takes place in the future and the main character has hand grenades, timed bombs, and a machine gun as weapon choices. The later levels take place in modern settings and the primary weapon is a shotgun only. The final level takes place inside the Cyberdyne factory, where you battle the Terminator alone. The objective of this level is to lead the Terminator into a compactor which destroys him.

The Sega CD version release was an entirely revamped game which had all-new levels, with development based on the David Perry engine, and was noted for its musical score by Tommy Tallarico, Bijan Shaheer, Joey Kuras and TeknoMan. This music is generated in Q Sound. The objective is identical to the movie, which involves future soldier Kyle Reese going through the Time Displacement equipment located inside a Skynet base in the year 2029 A.D. to go back in time to Los Angeles 1984 to protect Sarah Connor from the Terminator.

The name in text on the scrolling intro, "Hemdale's The Terminator", refers to the independent Hemdale Film Corporation, who produced the original movie. (Once the studio closed, Orion Pictures became the owner of all films Hemdale once owned.)
