DescriptionEdit

Tempest is an arcade game by Atari, originally designed and programmed by Dave Theurer. Released in October 1981, it was fairly popular and had several ports and sequels. The game is also notable for being one of the first video games with a selectable level of difficulty (determined by the initial starting level). The game is a tube shooter, a type of shoot 'em up where the environment is fixed and viewed from a three-dimensional perspective.

Game cabinets manufactured in 1980 contained a software bug that allowed players to obtain forty free credits. After obtaining over 180,000 points, a player must end the game with a score whose final digits are 06, 11, or 12.

Ready Player One HistoryEdit
