Targ was a successful 1980 game by Exidy depicting vehicular combat in a future world.

The locale is described by the game cabinet as “The Crystal City”: it is a simple 9×9 grid of roads demarcated by rectangular buildings. The player, piloting the Wummel, which looks like a small green car, maneuvers through the maze trying to shoot enemies and avoid collisions. Most of the enemies consist of angry-looking red wedges, or “Targs”. Occasionally, a small cyan-colored “Spectar Smuggler” will appear; shooting this is worth a significant point bonus. When all the enemies have been destroyed, a bonus is awarded and a new round starts. If the player takes too long to clear the board, the speed of the Targ ships increase until they are traveling faster than the player’s Wummel.
