Title Vektor Storm Game Type Shoot-em-up Publisher Inova Games Players 1 HD Installable Yes Compatibility All Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review Remember Tempest in the arcades? Well, this is the best version that I have seen on the Amiga. The object of the game is to shoot all the enemies that come flying at you. The graphics are vektor based meaning that they consist of connecting lines. The lines will form a shape, sometimes oval sometimes rectangular. You move your ship around the perimeter of the shape shooting everything that flies at you from the middle of the shape. You try to shoot them before they can make it to the perimeter which if they do, you usually get killed. You have the option of playing with either the mouse or joystick but neither one can compare to the original arcade method of the spinning knob. The controls sometimes seem to stick and don't move as fluidly as they should. This can be a very big problem in this type of game because fast precise movements is what the game is all about. Even with that minor glitch the game is still playable. There is also the option to set the difficulty and starting levels (Provided you have the password). Passwords are given out at the end of every couple of levels and saves the game from suffering from the frustrating "start the game from the beginning when you die syndrome". There are loads of levels and each one gets progressively harder. The graphics even though vektor based are nice and colorful and the sound is very good and is in stereo. Being harddrive installable is a big plus because the game loads instantly. There is even a quit back to workbench option. Finally someone got it right. In conclusion, You like Tempest? Then you will like this game. It is by far the best version available. It is almost a perfect conversion and would be if the control response was a little better. It still plays well and has a perfect difficulty level. This is another example where a game focuses on playablility and not fancy graphics (although having both would always be great). This is a nice game to have and you don't have many if any, other commercial games of this type to choose from. I like the game and I think you will too. Long live TEMPEST!
