Turbo is the classic driving game. A steering wheel, two gears (typical of the games of the time), a pedal (after all, what is the brake?). The route is mixed: city, sea, mountains, ice, dark tunnels. Complicating the race there are competitor cars, who try to hinder overtaking causing serious slowdowns in the event of a collision. If the route is completed in time, extra time is given, and extra “cars” to be used in the event of a collision in over time too. Records are managed by a 7-segment display. From the philological point of view Turbo can be considered the son of Monaco GP which follows the gameplay ported in a three-dimensional perspective view.
The game in the collection is probably a European version. Internally it is completely SEGA and even if the different electronic parts were produced in Japan, the side art is smaller with different arts. The gear is on the left as in the original. Knob and control panel have been strongly restored but fortunately it has been possible to preserve the originals.
