Video Game / Turbo
is a 1981 Arcade Game
. 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
Not to be confused with the video game character of the same name from Wreck-It Ralph
, although it may have been the inspiration for him.
