Description of The Terminator

An excellent and inventive 3D action game that casts you as either The Terminator or Reese from the hit movie of the same name. Although primarily an action game, the typical shoot-em-up formula is augmented by the seemingly endless gameplay varieties: you can drive cars, add new bionic weapons, and take on diverse missions while avoiding bystanders. Great fun!

Had similar issue to player below, got it to load the start splash screen in D-fend but then it gets stuck at a black screen with the music playing. I did change the config to 386 prefetch, however anyone else have an idea?

You'll need to download and install DosBox to run the game.

Open DosBox and type the commands my in my next comment.

This worked for me.

Mount your game Directory

mount c [drive letter]\[game dir]\term (for example, c:\games\term)

'Switch to c drive (your dosbox game dir)'
TYPE
c:\

INSTALL THE GAME
TYPE
install.bat

WHEN ASKED FOR DIRECTORY
TYPE
install c:\term\term

WHEN ASKED FOR VIDEO PREFERENCE
Choose VGA (#2)

'wait for files to install, press key when asked'

TYPE (required to run game)
cputype=386_prefetch

'change dir'
TYPE
cd term

'change dir again'

TYPE
cd term (should say c:\term\term)

You'll need the pdf file (run with adobe reader) from fontaine's link. The game will ask you to match the picture in this chart.

The game is playable, you just need to learn how to use DosBox properly. Too bad I can't seem to find a manual haha, ohh well I'll just figure out the controls myself then

DMC14 2012-11-24 0 point DOS version

HAHA i had this game when i was a kid wow . im downloading it now.

Jaye 2012-11-22 0 point DOS version

I had the game back in the early 90's. It's crap anyway, even with nostalgic value. Don't bother downloading - it's practically unplayable.

Zat 2012-11-07 0 point DOS version

OK...so I made it to intro with credits, but still....nothing happens when intro ends. :-(

Zat 2012-11-07 0 point DOS version

Damn...somehow it wont start. When I start it in DosBox only one empty row appears in DOS and thats it. Nothing happens. :-(

fontaine 2013-05-02 0 point DOS version

Dude, is this what you're looking for?

I have this game but I don't have the symbols sheet. Without the sheet i can't play the game. So, for now, the game sits on a shelf, waiting for the day I find it at some garage sale.
