Description[edit | edit source]

Terminator2 logo.png

The T-1000 has arrived and found John Connor.
Not good at all...

"Terminator 2 - Judgment Day" is the official video game for the release of the second coming of the Terminator film series. Also on the cartridge edition was the "image system" and "modern music maker."

Design[edit | edit source]

The first confrontation with the T-1000...
...does not work so well.

The game was set in stages in which objectives were needed to be completed without the player dying. The levels consisted of fighting/shooting, obstical driving and working through mazes. The levels each had unique graphics but is essence the same gameplay.

  • Stage 1: The first duel against the T-1000, in a penny arcade
  • Stage 2: A wild chase bethween a truck and a motorcycle, in a dry canal
  • Stage 3: The Wrist of T-800 must be repaired
  • Stage 4: Sarah Connor escapes from the psychiatry
  • Stage 5: Another skirmish with the T-1000
  • Stage 6: The mechanical eye from T-800 has malfunction and needs a repair
  • Stage 7: The T-800 must compete against the town's SWAT unit
  • Stage 8: Escape from a helicopter in a stolen police car
  • Stage 9: The final battle between the two terminators


Together with John Connor on a motorcycle...
There are certainly better suited routes...
What a crisscross...
Where does the wire belong?
Not only the terminators can fight...
Sarah Connor also knows how to defend herself...

Come on, you evil thing!
A T-1000 as a sparring partner...
Human live lost: Zero.
Is that possible?
It's time to tinker again...
With a smashed eye you will not have the right look...

Everything full of obstacles...
The Road Construction Office here is really crazy...
Well, now do the rest and then...
"Hasta la vista, baby!"

Reviews[edit | edit source]

Zzap!64 from October 1991: "This is the slickest cart yet with a great intro and excellent bitmaps keeping the game together far better than any Ocean game yet. C2Ners don't have the pleasure of the pre- and post-level bitmaps but at least the intro and end bitmaps are in there. As for the actual game I found it slightly disappointing for what is a major Ocean product; there just isn't that much innovation. However, the levels are very well crafted with pace and quality graphics, the subject is a sure-fire winner and the variety of gameplay should appeal to all. I particularly like the SWAT van and Cyberdyne levels, so it's definitely worth getting!" (unknown editor)

Shmendric: "Graphically, it all looks really nice, the sound is a bit frugal, but not really bad. The SID version of the movie theme was successful, but then the music programmer went on vacation.
Ocean is well known for: Take a movie, divide it into 5 or 6 different single games and then add the whole thing back to a threadbare program with a lot of reload and frustration factor. What should be varied, just does not quite fit together. Contrary to the opinion of the Power Play editor, I found the MS-DOS version much easier to play. Certainly is not a game where you start choking, but I never really felt like spending time and concentration on this program. Two bonus points for the sometimes quite attractive graphics, and one because I like the movie. With such an idiosyncratic bill, a suboptimal game like Terminator 2 can earn whole 4 points."

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

Modern Music Maker[edit | edit source]

Terminator2 1.png

This is a sequencing based music software allowing composition of music using the SID chip. The program consists of a main pattern sequence page in which patterns can be written and a live music/instrument editing feature. Both were simple to use and controlled by the user input from the keyboard, predominantly using the F keys to change values in the instruments to generate the sound and typing number values into the pattern sequences.
