Typoon 2001

Effort to preserve for use on SteamOS/Debain. Typhoon 2001 is a Tempest 2000 clone. This snapshot is from, what I assume per the original tarball here revision r3992.

The game is a static binary, so there is no current way I have to correct any issues. Please do not submit issues agains this project of this nature.

Legacy info

Typhoon 2001 for Linux (c) 2006 - 2007 by Thorsten Kuphaldt -


This is a remake of the Atari Jaguar classic game Tempest 2000. T2K, as it is sometimes called, was originally created for Atari by Jeff "Yak" Minter as a remake of the arcade-game Tempest, which was in turn created by Dave Theurer.
