Tempest 2000 on the Jaguar. This game is highly addictive and probably my favorite game on jaguar.

I'm playing the Atari Anniversary port on GBA. I'm fairly certain I don't even "get it," because I pretty much get a GAME OVER in about 20 seconds.

I plan to play the Jaguar and the PS1 ports and do some comparison.

Anyone want to sell me a rotary controller?

I'm going to do this one on MAME. See how well my trackball substitutes for a spinner.

Oh man I haven't played Tempest since I had one of the pc ports on my families old 486. I remember our big Kensington pro trackball worked pretty well for it. Giving that thing a good spin was almost as satisfying as a real spinner, I have a feeling playing it with mouse or gamepad won't be nearly as fun :( .

Another tease to get a ball mouse spinner mod going.
And I'm still waiting for Atari Ages to release the 5200 Tempest.
