It looks a little busy but I'll buy it if it works with a spinner.  Jeff Minter makes some cool games.

It should work with a spinner since it works with a mouse.  I have the original Free version called "Typhoon 2001" that was made years ago.  It worked great on my cabinet with a spinner.

Goodle Typhoon 2001 and you should be able to find the free program hosted somewhere.  I'm glad that he updated it and commercialized it though.  It really is a cool game.

Yeah I've played it, its really great especially since its free. Only thing we don't know yet for this game is the extent of the mouse options, hopefully he thought to put the same options like sensitivity, reverse axis... into this new game just like there was in Typhoon.

This is good to know.  Are there other fun "modernish" spinner PC games out there?  I have an extra spinner I wouldn't mind building something around.

Definitely going in my Tempest cabaret! I couldn't find an original vector monitor to fully restore it so I'm putting in a rotatable LCD as well as other spinner games. Will be nice to have this running alongside the original Tempest even if it is on an LCD.

The only other one I know of is Luxor.
