ARASHI1.1.1.sit_.bin (1.54 MB)
For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

A fast action vertical shooter. Immediate descendant of STORM (the Mac port of Tempest) and a precursor to MacAttack.

Excellent arcade-style Tempest clone. The sound and graphics are perfect. If you're a fan of Mac Arcade games this is a must download! - Supercletus

This game can be thought of as an interpretation of 'Tempest 2000' on the Atari Jaguar. Its fast, colorful (if the old Star Wars wire frame 'colorful' is your thing, which it is mine), and well worth the couple of minutes to download. I'm playing this on a G3 iBook running MacOS9.1 and it runs just fine. Try it, you might like it. - One Brain Cell

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

Includes scripts, notes, manual and predecessor STORM

I rarely enjoy looping arcade shooters, but not only did I carry this everywhere, I bought copies for co-workers with Macs. The wireframe graphics make the enemy movement patterns stand out, and there is a steady supply of weapons, so you always feel you have a fair chance even as the speed and difficulty increase. New opponents and booby traps are introduced gradually so you have time to adjust your own footwork. It's also loud and sarcastic, but that just makes it a period piece. :>

This is a very good port of Tempset (1980). There is a cool practice mode that lets you play all of the levels. I've been playing it on Mac OS 9 all the time since 2012.

This is actually more "playable" and better animated that the original arcade game!

This is one of the finest games ever released for the earlier colour Macs. The sound is superb, and the gameplay is perfect for the mouse. The fact that I was a huge Tempest fan has nothing to do with it Smile

"Arashi" is actually Japanese for "Storm".
