Typhoon 2001 is a freeware game inspired by both the Atari Jaguar hit game Tempest 2000 and the arcade hit Tempest. It takes ideas and concepts from both games, but rearranges and changes them. A few new ideas have been implemented as well. A built-in level editor lets you design your own "webs."

Version: Typhoon 2001 release 808
The game, being a remake of a pretty old game, looks very nice, plays very nice, and just has a nice feel to it. It's similar in that respect to Rainbow or Grid Wars: just a small nugget of fun now and then. It's so small that you might as well just get it, even if you hate the first version.
It's pretty hard and comes with a learning curve, mostly with the controls and what you are supposed to do. It won't keep you entertained for a long while, but for five minutes it's good.
