Target: Terror is the first game from Konami that will be compatible with Nintendoâ€™s new Wii Zapperâ„¢; players will be able to capture the old-school flavor of fast-paced light gun shooters from gamingâ€™s glory days of the arcades. Target: Terror puts players in the role of an elite counter-terrorist agent charged with protecting the U.S. from an ever-increasing wave of terrorist threats.
With a full-scale assault spanning the entire nation, players can show these terrorist thugs whoâ€™s boss, using an assortment of lethal weapons including machine guns, grenade launchers, freeze guns, flamethrowers and even an orbital laser beam from space. Target: Terror also features a unique â€œJustice Mode,â€ allowing players to dual-wield weapons for twice the mayhem.
