Tempest 3000 - Nuon

Tempest 3000 NuonTempest 3kOf all the weird, innovative and ultimately failed platforms Jeff Minter supported, the Nuon was the one that got itself the fewest games (the Konix MultiSystem doesn't count, mind). Eight games to be precise, and Jeff's Tempest 3000 was by far the most intriguing. You can bid on it and hopefully grab a complete boxed copy via this Tempest 3000 Nuon eBay auction. Seller ships worldwide.


  1. I must of missed the Nuon age... Don't think I have ever heard of one...

    "Psychedelic Mind Candy For The Brain"

    yeah, thats all I need... Hundreds of levels of that stuff...

  2. Well, nobody had really... It was a fancy DVD standard that also played games... Judging by Tempest 2000 it must have been glorious!

  3. Oh, the Nuon is great! For Tempest 3000, anyway. That's the sole reason I purchased one. Have a look at my Tempest 2000 / 3000 / Nuon writeup over at Byte Cellar.

    Video linked in, etc.

  4. Fantastic link! Thanks a ton! Oh, and excellent write-up.
