Tem­pest 4000

Retro Gamer - - RETRORATED -

Jeff Min­ter’s lat­est evo­lu­tion of Tem­pest will feel fa­mil­iar to any­one that played TXK. Sure, there are ad­di­tional Atari lo­gos, 4k vi­su­als and the in­clu­sion of the Tem­pest 2000 tunes, but make no mis­take, this is still the same bril­liant blaster from 2014, but it’s had a few tweaks, not all of which we’re keen on. Weirdly, the claw feels like it has a lit­tle more inertia than it did in the orig­i­nal TXK, which does take a while to ad­just to. There’s a big­ger fo­cus on on­screen py­rotech­nics as well, which makes it tougher to get ‘into the zone’. The price is the killer how­ever, which is bound to put off some. We’d ar­gue it’s still worth it though, as few coders man­age to de­liver this sort of blast­ing bliss.
