YMMV: Tempest
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The Tempest 2000 soundtrack, as expected from Jeff "Yak" Minter.
  • Good Bad Bugs
  • Nightmare Fuel: Inverted; this game was inspired by a nightmare.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Developed by Jeff Minter, the sequels to Tempest constantly flood the game field with psychedelic visuals like flashes of light, particle effects, multicolored abstract backgrounds and deranged sounds. The flashiness had gotten so extreme in Space Giraffe that gamers protested that it made it almost impossible to understand what was going on in the level, so Jeff Minter made an alternate mode (called "NUXX", as opposed to the normal "Acid Mix" mode) where the backgrounds are dark.
