If you were looking forward to playing Jeff Minter's Tempest-inspired TxK on a platform besides Vita, keep waiting. For now, Minter is relenting to Atari's demands.
Five French teenagers have been arrested after getting drunk, kidnapping a llama and, according to The Independent, "taking on him on a tour of Bordeaux via the city's tram system".
Jeff Minter, he of Mutant Camels and Space Giraffe fame, is back with another iPhone title. This one's called Deflex, and it's a remake of sorts of Superdeflex, which Minter made in 1982. [Touch Arcade]
Hall of fame video game create Jeff Minter doesn't make bland games. They're a festival of old-school graphics and techno music. And he demonstrates his latest, Minotaur Rescue, while wearing a minotaur mask.
That's because this is a music video as directed by Llamasoft, creators of tripped out, gamer-bewildering titles like Tempest 2000 and Space Giraffe. The song? Electronic musician Tiga's "Mind Dimension."
Jeff Minter's Llamasoft is so very pleased with PC Gamer UK's 92% review of the PC version of Space Giraffe that they've spilled the beans on the release date for their next title, Gridrunner+++.
