TEMPEST / Atari / Atari 2600


Atari's 2600 port of the arcade hit Tempest is just ... ooky. And yes, that was "ooky", not "okay." They couldn't replicate the vector graphics of the original, so they apparently settled for doing really ugly and confusing sprite work instead. You now circle around what appears to be a pair of striped gentlemen's briefs, and often get hit and die when there were no projectiles or enemies anywhere near you. One of those ports that is so bad it's actually worse than not playing the game at all.
