From youtube's mwoodj, the Tempest 2000 video:

This is Tempest 2000 (Atari Jaguar) under Gentoo Linux using the T2K emulator. I recorded this with ffmpeg. I did not use the latest version of the emulator because it is not available for Linux. Because of this you don't hear the "Superzapper Recharge" sample between webs. Jaguar emulation is still in a pretty pitiful state. T2K is the most playable game through Jaguar emulation. This emulator, in particular, is really only meant to be used to emulate T2K.

I missed a lot of power-ups but keep in mind that while the video is zoomed in on the little window I still played the game in the little window and I couldn't really tell which segment of the web the powerup was coming up. Also, I usually play this game on a real Jag with a rotary controller. My goal was to show some gameplay with at least one bonus round.
