Llamasoft, Atari, and Jeff Minter brings the past to the present with the release of Tempest 4000. The graphics and music from the 1981 classic have received a noticeable upgrade, but does the timeless gameplay carry over too?
The robotic worlds of Capcom’s Mega Man series were challenging enough as it is, but leave it up to Batterystaple Games and Fire Hose Games to kick things up a notch.
