Content Rating: Everyone
Tempest 4000 is a visually stunning, action-packed tube shooter based on the classic hit arcade game, Tempest. Developed by legendary game designer, Jeff Minter, Tempest 4000 remains faithful to the original fast-paced gameplay by putting you in control of the Claw, a powerful spacecraft equipped to destroy deadly creatures and other obstructions with rapid-fire shots on vibrant geometric prisms. Featuring fantastical graphical environments, 100 levels, three game modes, and more, you must eliminate all enemies as fast as possible to survive and compete for the highest score on the leaderboards.

Jeff Minter has been behind the game’s previous sequels or re releases (Tempest 2000 in ‘94, Tempest 3000 in 2000) and it is a true rendition of the Tempest I grew up with. However, despite porting it over to the newer operational systems, I don’t feel that there was enough of a difference from previous versions to warrant a release at this price point.
Tempest 4000 is the final Llamasoft Tempest and an incredibly strong game to go out on. The years of experience with the series are on full display in everything from the flow of the levels, speed of introducing new enemies while mixing in the familiar ones, web design and even the spikes in difficulty followed by a short break before ramping back up again.
Schade, dass es keinen kooperativen Multiplayer-Modus oder etwas anderes wirklich Neues gibt, den Classic Modus möchte ich dagegen ausdrücklich loben: Er bietet neun Leben, zwei mehr als eine Katze, und Wiedereinstiegspunkte. Hab ich's bis Mission 15 geschafft, darf ich nach einem »Game Over« dort weitermachen, mit nur einem Leben allerdings.
