Got this when it was £7.95! Had never played a Tempest game before.

First impressions were that the controls were clunky and the SFX were going to fry my eyeballs.

Some of the mechanics aren’t really explained (had to google) but after a while you get in a groove and it’s a fun shooter.

Most of the time the really crazy visual effects are happening when you don’t really need to concentrate but I would have
preferred the option to turn them off as they can be quite draining.

It’s fun and challenging. Best played in short doses. Games don’t last long.

I’m still undecided whether its best to try and play precisely or just whirl around in a crazy circle shooting everywhere.

Not many people on the leaderboards so I doubt it sold that well.

I'm glad I bought it but there is also a definite chance it wont be your cup of tea and you will try it once and bin it off.

So what you're saying is that Jeff Minter made a Jeff Minter game.

Maybe! Thought I would post my thoughts as someone who had never played a Tempest game before.
Love the game, though they've made it far more difficult than 2000, I could stack lives easily in that, not so in this.
Not a single update either, it's begging for VR, look at polybius. None of this will happen due to a dispute though
I'm old enough to remember this on the Atari Jaguar :P
A bit of acid changes the game completely........
super zapper recharge!
