Tempest 2000 / Typhoon 2001
I was revisiting an old game for the PC (Typhoon 2001) that was a remake of an even older game (Tempest 2000) for the Atari Jaguar and Sony Playstation 1 which is a remake of an even older game, Tempest by Atari. For those that don't know Tempest 2000, it was a remake of the old Atari game, Tempest.

And it's so beautiful on the PC at full 1920x1080 graphics and 100+fps...

But what struck me was how it'd be perfect for the Kinect. It's just as beautiful as Child of Eden with even simpler game mechanics. All you have to do is scroll the claw left and right, have a jump feature, and a special attack feature.

Here's a sample video (sorry for the poor quality, it was recorded with a screen capture program and on top of that, Youtube compressed the heck out of it):

The video isn't that exciting because it's just the first couple of levels which were easy enough to get you to learn the game strategy and mechanics. In the higher levels, things get super intense.

the game is free on the PC. And it's even better than the commercial Tempest 2000 or the Nuon sequel, Tempest 3000.

If you want to try out the game, make sure you set the graphics settings to the max and also turn on antialiasing inside the game.

Here's the website:
