Atari Reveals Tempest 4000 Gameplay

I used to love playing this in Arcades back in the day.


The first footage of Tempest 4000 give fans a healthy dose of neon colors and
fast-paced shooter gameplay set to an adrenaline-pumping techno soundtrack. The
powerful Claw spacecraft returns, fully equipped to destroy deadly creatures and
other obstructions with rapid-fire shots on vibrant geometric prisms. It’s simply
polygon perfection!

Set for release this holiday season on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4,
Tempest 4000 sees the return of legendary game designer Jeff Minter, for a faithful
and thrilling sequel nearly two decades in the making!

Tempest 4000 is a collaborative love-letter for Tempest fans from Minter and Atari

gorgeous 4K graphics. With three game modes to choose from and 100 levels to
conquer, players must eliminate all enemies as quickly as possible to survive,
