Typhoon 2001 Portable Game

Typhoon 2001 is a Free arcade game that was originally inspired by Tempest and Tempest 2000 an Atari Jaguar Game. It was designed using the same concepts but with improved graphics and sound. System requirements are minimal, so it can run on almost anything.

Typhoon 2001 Game
This Atari like remake of the Tempest arcade game starts out easy and the difficulty slowly rises per level. There are over 100 levels of gameplay, seven different enemies, starting level is selectable and the game can be controlled via the mouse/Keyboard or gamepad. It uses OpenGL and Allegro. It remains one of my favorite freeplay arcade games to play when I just want to zone out and kill time.
