I bought this prototype game and brought it with me to the 2014 Houston ArcadeExpo to play.

I played a couple of times early Friday morning......its not a complete (playable) game. To which I was really disappointed in it. The graphics were great.....only 2 of the AFL helmet colors in the menu were correct - all of the others were white with the correct logo on them (as if they didn't finish that part), no matter which home team you chose, it was always the "Albany Firebirds" field (endzones), you could call the play but had no control of any players (similar to the old NFL Head Coach for PS2 or Xbox), etc etc

I did shoot some video of the game play - I have to review it to see if I had the camera positioned just right to see it.

 

The guy who actually brought the Jaguar to the show had Tempest 2000 along with a rotary modified controller. I did enjoy the Tempest 2000 with that modified controller!!!

I did put down my $10 for a reserve copy of Arena Football '95 back in 1994...... for the $10 I was to get $5 off final price of game, $25 off the console, and a mini AFL football. V Real Interactive had delays in making the game and somewhere between '94-'95 they sent me a letter with 2 AFL footballs saying that they were near completion. They folded shortly after that.....no game ever made. This is a prototype - unfinished version of the game. Unfortunately.........

I haven't picked this one up yet. The videos online always impressed me.

 

If you haven't checked them out, the B&C Computervisions (myatari on eBay) protos of Barkley Shut Up & Jam and Brett Hull NHL Hockey seem pretty complete. Space War 2000 is rough but playable. It shows a lot of potential.

If I ever get an actual console - the first cart I'm getting is Tempest 2000! Played it at the 2014 Houston ArcadeExpo with a modded Jaguar controller that had a knob built in the back of it for this game - it was very cool!
