Not much to review here, since there's only one level, no sound, and no way to die.

This was supposed to be the Vectrex version of Tempest (not counting Bedlam), but Dondzila didn't finish the game. All you've got present are spikers and flippers, and that's it; all you can do is move and shoot.

One good thing about this is that the left and right controls are used with the buttons, and not the joystick, which you can still move your blaster really fast (some people think Tempest can NOT be played unless you use the original arcade spinner, which is kind of proved wrong here).

To rate this demo as it is would probably merit only about a 3 or so, but that's unfair since the game wasn't finished. I still occasionally "zone out" and find myself taking 20 minutes just shooting things in a circle. Too bad, this had potential. Oh well, there's plenty of other full games on the compilation to make people happy though :)
