Today seems like the perfect day to talk about this rather quirky 1984 arcade title from Williams Electronics. As a Turkey Terminator you are tasked with defending the city from rampaging…turkeys…well actually they are people that have been transformed into turkeys thanks to the Great Gobble Blight of 1989. Using advanced weaponry that include a laser gun, grenade launcher, and a turkey caller you have to make it through through 100 levels, trying your best to stop the marauding menace and protect the citizens of the city!

Here is a 39:21 YouTube video of the game:
