    Tempest 2000 only works on really old Macs. It doesn't even work in Classic, never mind a Macbook Pro (well, it sort of runs in Classic, but goes 50X too fast).

    You can play the original Tempest using MAME. There at least two current mac ports of MAME: sdlmame (link to source, link to compiled version) and MAME OS X.

    You will need the rom to be able to play Tempest however (or any classic arcade game, for that matter), which is up to you to find.
