About Tempest 4000

About this game

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.

Tempest 4000 is already looking as dazzling as its counterpart, and while it does follow the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” sort of logic, it’s still a delight to play, with plenty of goofy quotes and flashy presentation to go around. It’s just the kind of old-school bliss that’ll come in handy for breaks between other AAA titles. Comicbook

Tempest 4000 is a great iteration on an arcade classic - Zam

The new game, which releases later this year, brings the neon lights, geometric graphics and pulse-pounding soundtrack that is a series trademark, alongside the addictive, frantic gameplay that has kept Tempest a popular franchise for over three decades.Destructoid

Tempest is back and it's every bit as frantic as it was before.TrueAchievements

Tempest 4000 is a collaborative love-letter for Tempest fans from Minter and Atari that’s been enhanced for contemporary audiences with exciting new features and gorgeous 4K graphics.

Hardcore Gamer

90 / 100
"Tempest 4000 is a fantastic conclusion to Llamasoft’s work on the games and easily holds its place amidst the classics of Atari’s flagship arcade series."

GameSpace

65 / 100
"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."

The Games Machine

81 / 100
"Jeff Minter has been able to renew the classic Tempest formula, which becomes an excellent game even after 38 years. Unfortunately, the PC version has some small but annoying...

Not even sure how I own this game, must have come in a bundle or something. Fanatical showed it to me as a game I could rate and I was excited that I have it in my library so I jumped into Steam to install it. I only played the first 5 levels or so before noping the F out. This is not the Tempest of old. This is not Tempest 2000. This is a stain on the Tempest name.
