Tempest 2000, Atari Jaguar

Jeff Minter’s 1994 remix of the classic arcade game Tempest is quite exciting on the Atari Jaguar. It features four different play modes, including Traditional, Plus, 2000, and Duel.

The game features the same intense blasting-down-a-tunnel-style gameplay as the original, but with new enemies, new tunnel styles, bonus levels, power-ups, and challenges. This version also features loads of great Minter-style trippy colour cycling and visual effects as well.

Tempest 2000 is said to be one of the best games released for the Jaguar, but considering that fewer than 60 games where ever released for the system, that’s not saying much.

Tempest 2000 was also released for MS-DOS, Macintosh, Sega Saturn, and Windows, so wasn’t a Jaguar exclusive.
