Hurricane is a one or two player, shareware, keyboard controlled shooter
based on the Atari game Tempest.
As in the original the game uses wire frame graphics to represent a well from
which spider like creatures ascend. The player moves around the ‘top’ of this
well zapping the creatures as they climb. Once they reach the top of the well
it’s just a matter of time before they catch the player who then loses one of
their three lives. The registered version of the game grants smart bombs after
The two player game is a ‘hot seat’ game with players taking turns at the
keyboard, they do not necessarily play on the same wire frame. The game has
sound and a high score card, the action keys cannot be redefined.
