One of the best homebrews for Atari. But only commercial available on cartridge at Video61.

From what I understand there's no active cracker scene on the Atari?

That's a shame, really. I heard this is some sort of early proto that has been rebuild? I just don't get why some people belive it's OK to sell new games / hacks of old (but still copyrighted) brands. If they do, they should ATLEAST also spread the ROM / image IMHO.

@Sixx:

Your information is wrong. Tempest Xtreem was coded from scratch. It's a totally new production.

But yes, Tempest is copyrighted by Atari. And so I doubt that it is legal to sell cartridges with the term tempest. They should have given it another name to avoid legal issues...

There was a cracker scene on the Atari 30 years ago. But nowadays there is no need for crackers. Almost all new productions are freeware. And the old ones were cracked long, long time ago. There are only a few exceptions (I think Atlantis Games Group - maker of Tempest Xtreem is the only).

It isn't too hard to dump the cartridge of Tempest Xtreem. But I and all the other customers respect the developers who want to earn some money with their programming and we don't spread the game. I have never seen a copy of Tempest Xtreem on the internet. There are so many thousands of old games you can find on the internet... No need for copying a special game.

Hm, I found the rom and it wasn't to hard. ;)

Can I still buy this gamen and what do you get? Cool case, manual and all the stuff? I couldn't find any pictures of that, just a page to order.
