Space Giraffe is a remake of an older game? I only saw the 360 version on GameStats. Which console was it on and when?

I'm going to assume he was talking about how it is similar to Tempest (it is not a remake of Tempest, however).

Well I guess since it is from the same creator, it is a psuedo-remake.

Minter created Tempest 2000 which was the official sequel to Tempest. Personally I consider it an update and not a true sequel, but whatever. Space Giraffe is an update of Tempest 2300 base yet again with added game mechanics.

Although not an official Tempest since it has no involvment with Atari it is really a continuation of updates from the original.

I didn't like Space Giraffe, and liked the old Dos, and Mac versions of POP better then the remake.
Too bad about BOB though. :(

Okay, so the Xbox voting is over, but there's a new place you can vote for your favorite indie, turn-based-strategy game: the Indie Game Showcase!
Head on over to check out the other cool indie games in the contest, and then vote for Band of Bugs! You can vote for as many games as you'd like (it's more like ranking the games rather than voting for just one), so go voting crazy if you want, and tell your friends! Here's the link:

Thanks!
