Atari has released a compilation of its famous arcade games for iPhone and iPad. There are over a hundred games in the collection, 18 classic arcade games like Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command and Pong to name a few. The other games, 82 in total are made up of classics from the first Atari home console know as the Atari 2600. Some of the games have had a modern day update with Bluetooth multi-player support. Those of you old enough to remember these classics should be very excited and rightly so; this compilation of games is awesome!
The app will be a free download and the games are all based on in-app purchases. They will be split into 25 games packs. The game has gone live in the New Zealand App Store already, with game packs priced at NZ$0.99 or you can buy the complete catalogue of games for a one off fee of NZ$14.99. We imagine US prices will be a little less.
The app is a universal binary so will run on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. You can see the full list of games available in the New Zealand App Store preview link.
