Tempest 4000  

 

I don’t know what I expected from Tempest 4000. I thought it would be a modern video game based on the retro Tempest franchise. I thought there would be some cool amazing graphics and things to do. Atari was already off to a bad start by failing us completely. How difficult is it to reply to emails? Obviously the millions of readers in Family Friendly Gaming Universe are not enough for them to want to make sales. No wonder Atari has gone bankrupt so many times in the past.

We move around these objects in Tempest 4000 and shoot things that come up at us. This might be interesting and this might be fun if the controls were a bit better. The lag in the controls make playing this game a miserable experience. I tried over and over again and died on certain objects in Tempest 4000. The 1.7 gig installation made me feel like I wasted my disc space on this game. Yes we have a physical copy. You would know that if you were watching our FFG Haul videos. Go here for more information.

The retro font and the visual special effects are really cool in Tempest 4000. The techno music will keep you awake and energized. There are two modes to play Tempest 4000 in. They are Pure and Survival. There are supposed to be one hundred levels in Tempest 4000. I was only able to get to ten of them because of the controls and difficulty. There are levels that are fun.

The best level in Tempest 4000 in my opinion is the flat one line. That level worked better than the others. I am not sure why some of the others were so difficult. There are power ups and smart bombs in Tempest 4000. Be aware those smart bombs are limited. I needed them more times than I had them. Those things got to the top really quickly and I could not get them all.

Tempest 4000 does not feel very different from past Tempest games in my opinion. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy so I could review Tempest 4000. I value this game at five dollars brand new. Anything more than that will be a waste of money. Tempest 4000 feels small, looks small, and is a weekend rental at best for most families.
