jeff minter's tempest 2000 is the only game i own for the atari jaguar. i own an atari jaguar so that i can play tempest 2000.

it's an arcade game, but it never appeared in the arcade, so it plies you with lives - then it requires that you start a stage over from the beginning with no power-ups when you lose one - but each stage starts you with no power-ups to begin with so it doesn't feel like a punishment. each extra ship is like a gift - another chance to get this stage right and a promise of a bit more time to spend with this amazing game.

the video is a collection of six of the game's stages, or "webs". it's a record of the pulsating spectacle that is tempest 2000.
