Video Game: Turbo
Turbo is a 1981 Arcade Game by Sega. It requires the player to navigate a road race through different urban and rural locations, through differing weather conditions, and during changing times of day.

It was ported over to the ColecoVision (which was bundled with a steering wheel and gas pedal controller) and the Intellivision. It also inspired a licensed board game by Milton-Bradley.

This game provides examples of

  • Endless Game: You basically drive until you run out of time or out of cars.
  • Racing Game: Of the rear-view drive-to-rack-up-the-most-points variety.
  • Timed Mission: The first round requires you to pass a certain number of cars before the timer runs out.
  • Video Game Lives: You are given two cars to continue the game with when you complete the first round.
