New Hombrew for tjhe Atari 8-Bit - Tempest Elite
« on: February 12, 2017, 19:42:10 PM »
I saw this announced at Atari IO and wanted to share it.  There's a new Tempest coming for the Atari 8-Bit computers called Tempest Elite.  The announcement was made by Atari IO member peteym5.  This is a game they have been working on for almost 5 years. Tempest Elite runs on a standard 64K Atari computer and has the ability to detect VBXE and Stereo Pokey. When detected it loads the subroutines (drivers) to take advantage of the upgraded hardware in 320x192 256 color mode. If not detected it will run with original Atari 8-bit Antic GTIA player/missile graphics in 160x192 4 color mode.


Going to the final frontier, gaming...
