Product Description

Product Description

The concept is fairly simple. You are a claw at the end of a web. Your mission: keep the enemy from reaching your end of the web. Sound easy? Perhaps, but Tempest 2000 will suck you into its web of addicting game play. Once you start, you'll know why Tempest was one of the most popular arcade games of all time.

Fifteen years (and hundreds of thousands of quarters) later, Tempest 2000 revives the legend with evil enemies, bonus levels, awesome weapons, dazzling visual effects, and a techno-rave soundtrack. You can even get your friends addicted with two-player cooperative or competitive modes. Prepare yourself for a violent storm!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Games of all time? 8 Mar 2004
This is Jeff "YAK" Minter's awesome reworking of the classic 80's arcade game. Whilst the gameplay is simple in principle this game oozes playability making it seriously addictive.
The graphics and sound really show what the Jag is capable of in the hands of a master programmer. The visuals are psychadelic, morphing about seamlessly. The sound is huge, in vibrant stereo and the techno soundtrack is great - truly CD quality.
Along with Tempest 2000 you get three other game modes. The classic arcade version, Tempest Plus (with an AI assisstant) and Duel (two player stand off).
This is one of the ESSENTIAL Jag games. Recommended to everyone, especially fans of the strange. What's your highest score going to be?

5.0 out of 5 stars THE reason to own a Jaguar 1 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Atari released the Jaguar console in 1993/94, and the Atari fans were hoping that Atari would get it right this time. Long story short, the Jaguar was a flop, but for a while in 1994 and early 1995 it was a contender with games such as Alien Vs Predator and Tempest 2000.
Tempest 2000 is based on Atari's 1980 coin-op smash hit. Tempest 2000 takes Tempest to the next level...and beyond.
Graphics are superb! Polygonal enemies (especially the demon heads), pixel shatter, rich vibrant colors, Melt-O-Vision, and the "Jupiter Bacon" make this game very visually appealing.
The audio in this game has to be heard to be believed! Crystal-clear voice samples, outstanding sound effects, and a thumping CD-quality techno-rave soundtrack may just give you an auditory orgasm!
Controls are superb! It is easy to move your ship around the Tempest Tube. It is easy to fire your weapons, even your Superzapper. And it is also easy to jump once you acquire the Jump powerup so you can blast your enemies without them having a chance to touch you! And there is an Easter Egg in the game that will allow you to play with a rotary controller (for those handy with a soldering iron, the easiest way to build a Jaguar rotary controller is taking the potentiometer and knob from an Atari 2600 Driving controller (similar to the paddle, but the paddle only turns 270 degrees, while the Driving controller turns a full 360 and then some).
Many game options to choose from. Play Tempest (original), Tempest Plus, Tempest 2000, and a 2 player battle version of Tempest!

5.0 out of 5 stars 64-bit Trip 5 Jan 2013
By jeremiah bilas - Published on Amazon.com
Tempest 2000 on Jaguar is not only the best Jaguar game, it may be the best game of the entire 1990s. The game is based off the original Atari vector graphics Tempest arcade game. It features an amazing techno soundtrack, absurdly trippy bonus stages, and melt-o-vision graphics best served with a recreational cigarette. Released also on Saturn and PSX (as Tempest 3X) the Jaguar version is the best version, and features exclusive bonus stages. It is also compatible with Jaguar rotary controllers for those of you daring enough to hunt one down. Thank you Jeff Minter for creating this masterpiece of art.
