This is an experiment to learn ClojureScript. It will (probably) never be completed, but will slowly head in the direction of becoming the Tempest arcade game, until I move on to other things.
Additionally, I developed the Tempest logic without much forethought. It just morphed its way up from drawing random lines. That means you're looking at thousands of floating point operations per frame... probably not a web browser's strongest point.
Game logic is written in ClojureScript, backend is in Clojure with the Noir framework.
lein deps lein cljsbuild once
Run Jetty webserver hosting Noir app
Then navigate to http://localhost:8080/tempest/5. Replace 5 with the level you want to play.
