Slightly fuzzy head after a day-long stag night. A lot better than when I woke up, my mouth feeling like I'd been chewing on the contents of my vacuum cleaner.

What better way to deal with it, than a day fuelled by Monster Munch, hiding from the sun, lost in a pyschedelic trance. Something caught my eye in the latest Edge magazine, something which I've been yearning for for a long time. A freeware PC version of Jeff Minter's classic, Tempest 2K, going by the name of Tsunami 2010. It's available as a tiny 96K download from Apocalypse Inc, also available from Classic Game Remakes. Shove your own CD of banging music into your PC (in-game disc of choice right now, White Label Euphora CD 2), load up the game, let the sweet swirling visuals wash over you, and let yourself go. Just you and the game, at one in the zone. Fabulously addictive old school blasting action. Looks set to well and truly take over from Spheres of Chaos as my quick fix adrenaline-inducer. Fantastic.
