Thumbs up Terminator [Bethesda]

I Just recently found this site, and wish i hadnt thrown this box away, even though the disks were so old they probably werent playable.

The game was called Terminator, based on the origional movie, came in its own box and the picture on the front was the same terminator with a shotgun that was the standard movie poster. The game was 3-6 disks old big real (3.5" i think it was) floppy disks, there was a manuel (that you badly needed, most of the keyboard letters were some obscure command you need to know but probably couldn't guess), there was fairly large map of the city, and another big red sheet with crazy alien looking letters printed in black all across it(didnt look photocopyable), im pretty sure that was needed for a keycode to get past a certian part of the game, or to get it started cant remember, never really got to play it myself.

The gameplay was awsome for the time though, you started out either as the terminator or the other guy (reece?) in random parts of the city, and sara connor was somewhere in the city too, and your goal for both was to find her.

You walked around in first person, or stole a car that would either be automatic or manuel (gool luck if so) and have some random amount of fuel in the tank that you couldnt refill, just ditch if you ran out. Terminator has some special abilities such as zoom with eyesight, and could take alot more punishment than reece could, and all he had to do was find sara and kill her. Reece could find her easier (i dont remember how, if it was totally random or whatever) and had to protect her, he could give her commands to stay or follow or hold whatever he needed her too.

You could break into stores and rob the register or buy stuff, sporting good stores had clothes (remember they both arrived naked) and guns (I can remember seeing something like 2 pistols, 2-4 automatic submachine gun types, and 2or3 rifles) and ammo you could steal or buy, and there was also the stinger rocket launcher if you could break into military base. Cops would show up if you stole too much or hung too long afterwards, or if you were seen brandishing a weapon in public.

The game was pretty hard, the cops were no joke, reece was hard to kill, not showing himself untill after he was shooting at you usually, sara would run if confronted, and the terminator was an unstoppable juggernaut reece would either need to rocketlauncher and a prayer, or several encounters too stop.

In other words it was an awsome game i never got to play, my dad built his first computer with a whopping 1mb of ram (he was proud too, he built it with an entire extra circuit board about as big as a motherboard with chips sauldered (sp?) on to get that much, everyone knew nobody would ever need that much but he did it just to have extra *cough*) and of course, when that game came out(91 i think), his computer could run it but badly, so he didnt play it much, and wouldnt let me play it because i was really young, and the next computer we got, that game was forgotton, because it was too old to run anyways... yea you get the idea.

Anyways, if anyone can come up with that game it would be awsome, ive wanted to play it since i was like 6, i read the instruction booklet and looked at the pictures many times and seen it played a few times (my dad would get killed by cops, i think twice he saw reece got blasted and never found him again, he got tired of it quickly, with its sub par preformance on his computer)

Wish i had known about dosbox when i threw the box away :crazy:

anyways

Rant over PLEASE find this game for me k:

Heh if anyone has ever seen or even heard of this game, feel free to respond.

Good to know someone is listening, If I can think of any more abandonware type games I will post those too.

*edit*

Ahh yes, hand't noticed the edit button

Found a review of the game, if you wanna see a little more of what I was talkin about, check this

http://www.the-underdogs.org/game-re...hp?gameid=1139

http://www.mobygames.com/game/sheet/gameId,1778/

(ok, so it was a pistol with a scope not a shotgun on the front of the box)

Here, someone says the have the origional with all floppys mint condition for sale, but 50 bucks though (bottom of list)
http://www.megstoybox.com/pages/term.htm

Also, probably not that helpfull but here is a badly formed site I found searching for terminator, probably doesnt have the one I was lookin for, but I cant really tell yet... Anyways it has alot of games

http://www.mega-soft.com/games/

(if anyone botheres to look, they might have some games not dowloadable here that should be, its not the kinda site you keep track of...)

it'll take more than 10 mins to get a answer to your question so be patient (there is the edit button if you want to add relevant info as well)

Sounds like it's one of the Bethesda games.

Those are all still protected by the ESA, so they won't be appearing on Abandonia, or any other reputable AW site.

Awwwwww

Yes I think it is Bethesda software... Cant believe they would still protect that game (1991 of all things)

Guess I might be out of luck with my search then, can only hope they drop it sometime in the near future and someone can upload the game with a pdf of all the manuels

Ok I really am going to the dark part of my brain that has been undisturbed in a long time for time one.

The game was based on the orginal Terminator, you could be the Terminator or Reese, It was like 8 or 16 colours and sort of 3D and you could go about the city all you wanted. The first thing you had to do (obviously) was find Sarah Conner.

Its sooooo hard for me to remember details but heres what I can muster up:
If the terminator went into a Hospital for healing the xrays showed the obvious and the cops were called, he couldnt swim either.

You could break into a weapon shop and steal rocket launchers and stuff like that and you could steal cars and drive them about. This is really goin back a long time for me and I would love to try the game again.

Does anyone know what game I'm on about? So hard for me to remember anything more
