Atari Greatest Hits brings over 100 Atari games to iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

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.

Let us know when it hits your country, and if you get it, what you think!

parabel says:

According to the description, it's not part of this set.. :/

LM says:

I'd buy it if they include Custer's Revenge.

Doolybug says:

LOL, don't think we'll see that in the app store ever!

Aaron Matthew Kaiser says:

It's live in the U.S. App Store. Prices are the same.

No Pitfall? Bummer. Probably will still get.

Amen Amen I say to you! I miss pitfall !!!!! I so want it bad, it was my favorite. Maybe the new C64 ( http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/06/commodore-usa-puts-the-new-c64-up-for... ) will have it! But I pray you dont have to load it with a cassette.

Pete Wilson says:

Sadly slot machine appears broken.

Cool! Wonder if it will be compatible with this:http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/retro-gaming/e762/
Big problem with just about any game for an iDevice is the controls. This would fix that for these kinds of games.

Dood says:

I HOPE I CAN PLAY ET ON MY PHONE!?

Ryan Rife says:

Worthless without Custer's Revenge.

RRP Video says:

What about Hide & Seek? Is that in the lists? I loved hiding under the side-walk.

RodneyJ725 says:

may be fun if runs well on ipad's screen :)

Hubby and I played these games for hours! We had a friend at Sperry Univac and he would get us all the games! We have the remake version that came out a few years back.
