Jeff Minterâ€™s Tempest 4000 â€“ originally released on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018 â€“ comes to Switch and Atariâ€™s own VCS console at the end of March.
We never reviewed the original (we were waiting on the UK physical release, which was constantly delayed) but we did cover it during a â€˜Games You May Have Missedâ€™ feature. In short: itâ€™s more forgiving than previous entries, and while it remains quite the trip, the psychedelics arenâ€™t quite as distracting as previous Llamasoft games.
Accompanied by a â€˜90s techno soundtrack, it features 100 stages and three different modes – Classic, Pure and Survival. If you played TxK on PS Vita, you may notice some similarities â€“ it’s essentially built on the foundation of Llamasoftâ€™s mini marvel.
The price is still TBA. However, the press release curiously points out that the Steam release is available for $19.99, so expect similar pricing.
