Terminator 2: Judgment Day or T2 is a light gun shooter video game based on the film of the same name, produced by Midway Manufacturing Company for video arcades in 1991. Gameplay: Running on the Williams/Midway Y-Unit arcade hardware and Midway X-Unit, the game allows one or two players to assume the role of a T-800 cyborg programmed to protect John and Sarah Connor and the resistance fighters against the Skynet offensive. Gameplay is set in a first-person perspective. The game consists of seven stages, with the first four set during the human/machine war in 2029 and the last three during John’s childhood in the 1990s. Cross a battlefield to reach a hideout for human refugees. Travel through the hideout, protecting the refugees against Terminators and other attackers. Fend off Terminators and hunter-killer aircraft as John drives to the main Skynet facility in a pickup truck. The player can earn a bonus for completing this stage on the first attempt. Invade the facility and destroy its main computer, after which the player’s character is transported back in time. Destroy as much equipment in the Cyberdyne research lab as possible while employees and SWAT officers fight back. If all equipment is destroyed during this stage, the player earns a large bonus and will receive the better of the two possible endings to the game as described above. Fight off the T-1000 as it uses a police chopper and tanker truck to attack the SWAT van in which Sarah and John are escaping to a steel mill. Shoot holes in the tanker to douse the T-1000 in liquid nitrogen until it freezes solid; fight off mill workers as John flees through the mill; then knock the T-1000 into a vat of molten steel to destroy it before it can kill John.
