Classic Tempest is the original arcade hit. Tempest Duel faces you off against a second player.

The X3 mode is very similar to Tempest 2000, but with improved speed, visual effects, and a remixed soundtrack.

TriviaThe game also had more music on the disc... There were 12 songs created by the band that the person who did the game's music (Eric Nofsinger) and sound effects was in when he worked on Tempest X3. The band name was "Spider Lung", but the only song of the 12 that was ever given a name was the shortest one- "Robot Neighbor". Through email, Mr. Nofsinger commented that there wasn't enough time to name them nor implement them. They are accessible with a computer only if you have some knowledge of Playstation game audio format and programming.
Because of the negativity associated with the word "furry", I won't say WHO...but one of the people who worked on the game was furry. They had some influence in the game's development... not only the notorious code "YIFF" in the game, but through conversation they told me that there were also a couple levels shaped like animals; though they weren't implemented in the normal game, the programming for them still exists and can be loaded with a GameShark. (Just a note: not EVERY member of the furry community is a crazed and disturbed freak like those you see on MTV or other network television, or read about on websites full of immature college students who like to criticize categories of people just for a few radicals who have created a negative stereotype. These people make your food, they work alongside you at your job, they create music you listen to, and most importantly (for this website) they work on the games you play and love. Don't pass judgement on someone you don't know.)
