Terminus, also known as Terminus: The Prison Planet, is a video game by Mastertronic. It was released in 1986 for the ZX Spectrum, MSX and Amstrad CPC. The game is set inside a futuristic prison consisting of 512 screens. The purpose is to release Brain, the leader of a teenage gang called The Wanglers. [1] The player controls one of four characters: Mobod and Xann who move by flying, Spex who moves around by bouncing, and Magno who uses "reverse gravity" to cling to roofs (this feature was used in the 2010 Windows and OS X game VVVVVV). The player can change characters by using one of the transports hidden around the prison and must unlock sections of the prison by using teleports.

During the game the player must also avoid traps which include lava pools, needle beams, creatures, compressor rooms (activated by touching wall sensors) as well as the numerous guards. Energy can be restored by using recharge units located around the prison complex.
