Ground Zero Releases Temple Tantrum
8:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Ground Zero Software, the people bringing Frozen Squid Ice Hockey to the Mac, have released another shareware title called Temple Tantrum. It's an interesting concept for a game, featuring exploration with arcade-style gameplay, and it even has its own level editor. Here's an excerpt from an email sent to us from Ground Zero's Jeff Hester:
Your task is simple...retrieve the Phoenix Eye, an extremely rare and priceless gem from the Temple ruins. As you move within the Temple, along the treacherous journey lies great riches but also grave danger. The Temple will not willingly give you its treasures. Not only must you fight against the Temple denizens that seek your death, you must also be wary of traps laid by previous explorers. You have the map, your instructions are clear; do you have what it takes...do you have the skill to capture the Phoenix Eye?? At under 10MB, the download shouldn't be too taxing on anyone's connection either. Head on over to Macgamefiles to grab the game now.
Welcome to Temple Tantrum. 'Temple' is an exploration, arcade-type game for the Macintosh, and is the latest shareware game developed by Ground Zero Software (makers of Bedlam 2.) Your ultimate goal is to complete all levels in the game, gathering as many gems, treasures and other goodies as you go, eventually retrieving the Phoenix Eye. 'Temple' contains over 100 different levels, consisting of several different divisions. Your journey begins in the courtyard but will take you through the garden, fire, maze, dungeon, tower, and treasure levels. There are also plenty of bonus levels along the way through which you can gather plenty of extra goodies. And if that's not enough, use the Temple level editor (which is available for free) to make your own custom levels.
