Breakdown Podcast – Atari’s Tempest Arcade

Gameroom Junkies Tempest Podcast Breakdown

We’re trying a little experiment here at Gameroom Junkies by producing some “in-between” podcasts that will focus on a singular game title. These podcasts are shorter and informative and will come between the regular Gameroom Junkies Podcast episodes with Preston and Patrick.

In our first-ever “Breakdown” episode, Preston spills all there is to know about Atari’s Tempest arcade machine. From it’s history to development, references to pop culture, and even some gameplay tips. Let us know what you think of the episode in the comments. Any suggestions on the next “Breakdown?”
