Did you try hitting the reset button? :)

I sat there for a minute or two before I realized that either
a) the came starts up in attract mode  or
b) for some reason the game doesn't react to the controls until it
   is reset

Either way, after I hit reset, the game was pretty much playable
(at least I was able to move back and forth, fire at the spinners,
and figured out how to use the superzapper...)

Now a question -- I thought a while back I saw a screencap for
2600 Tempest where there was a sort of title screen (the word
"Tempest" over the playfield...maybe I was wrong)
