Turkey Shoot - Cabinet - Video Game Marquee


The year is 1989 and mutant turkeys have taken over. As one of Chief Ludzia's turkey terminators, it is your job to make the streets safe once more. A unique thing about the game was at the end of the level, actual turkey feathers would fly up between the protective plexi glass and the CRT. All you have is your gun with grenades on ammo. Good Luck!
