Journey To Silius – Terminated

Anyone else remember how badass this was?

Journey To Silius is a sidescrolling shooter from 1990. I don’t remember the plot much. You were basically a dude and you ran around and shot things, usually robots.

It is hard. It also had some cool tunes.

This guy on Youtube wants to play one for you.

More interesting is that Journey To Silius was supposed to be the NES version of The Terminator.

Journey to Silius began life as a “Terminator” game. Unfortunately, the original copyright text and some unknown graphics are all that remain from that development period. Note the original copyright date of 1989, compared to the final’s 1990. I wonder how long it took Sunsoft to strip the game of all “Terminator” references?
