T2 - The Arcade Game rom

The T2 – The Arcade Game ROM is available to play for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game is the US English version and can be played using the BSNES or HIGAN (SNES) Emulator on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS devices.


T2 – The Arcade Game or Terminator 2: Judgment Day is a light gun shooter based on the film of the same name, produced by Midway Manufacturing Company as an arcade video game in 1991. Developed in tandem with the movie, several actors from the film reprise their roles for the game and are featured as part of the game’s photorealistic digitized graphics. The game’s plot largely follows that of the film, casting up to two players as the T-800 “terminator” cyborg from the film, sent back in time to protect John Connor from assassination by the T-1000 terminator.

Additional Information

The story of the game falls in line with the movie Terminator 2: Judgment Day: to save the leader of the Human Resistance, John Connor, and his mother Sarah from the T-1000, an advanced prototype Terminator bent on killing them both. The player takes the role of a T-800 Terminator cyborg, already captured and reprogrammed by the human resistance, and fights alongside them against Skynet in the year 2029. Eventually, the T-800 and John Connor penetrate Skynet’s headquarters and destroy the system CPU.

Discovering the time displacement equipment, the T-800 is sent back through time to John’s childhood, with the mission to protect him from the T-1000 that Skynet has already sent back. 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. If John is killed in the third, sixth, or seventh stages, the player incurs a large health penalty and must replay that stage from the beginning. The player’s primary weapon is a machine gun, which fires in automatic mode as long as the trigger is pulled.

Pressing a button on the side fires a secondary weapon (missiles in 2029, shotgun shells in the 1990s). Gun ammunition is unlimited; however, an on-screen power gauge slowly decreases with extended firing, causing the rate of fire to slow down. The gauge slowly refills when the gun trigger is released. Health/weapon power-ups and ammunition supplies for the secondary weapon are available throughout the game.
