Mac Ledge (May 21, 1998)
If you are a fan of 1980s arcade games, particularly the original Tempest, you will love Tempest 2000. The simplicity of design and gameplay associated with this game gives it a charm that you can't help but like. The addition of the variants Tempest Plus, Tempest 2000 and Tempest Duel, spices up this remake just enough to bring it up to a level that today's game player will appreciate. If you're looking for a complex theme or a dazzling variety of weapons, you may want to look elsewhere. If you are a fan of the original Tempest or if you're looking for an arcade style game with classic styling and a singular appeal, this one's for you.
Macworld (Feb, 1999)
Go back to the future with this update of the classic arcade game, shooting wave after wave of rapidly approaching aliens. The update adds the ability to jump over oncoming enemies and enhances the graphics, but it's still a repetitive eighties arcade game at heart.
