Atari offers 100 greatest hits for free to commemorate 40th anniversary

Atari's 40th anniversary is this week, and to celebrate they're offering their catalog of classic games on iOS for free. Normally the 100-strong collection goes for $9.99, and even then, most of the titles still required in-app purchases. The version available now offers all of 'em for free, so long as you keep the arcade app installed, but it will be reverting back to its original pricing sometime tonight, so old-school gamers will want to hop on this deal soon. The list of included games include all of the big name titles:

  • Asteroids
  • Centipede
  • Pong
  • Missile Command
  • Warlords
  • Tempest

For the next 4 days, Atari will also be giving away some sweet swag on their Facebook page. If you're looking for something a little more modern, Atari recently released a cutesy remake of Centipede for iOS.

Hey, Steve Jobs worked at Atari for a spell, y'know. Someone, for some reason, actually paid $27,500 for an original memo from Jobs in 1974 on how to fix a bug in an arcade game called World Cup.
