Atari launches greatest hits collection for iOS!!!!!!!!!


Atari has mined 100 titles from its archives and has served them up in a tidy Greatest Hits collection available in Apple's App Store.
Atari iOS App
Atari has dusted off 100 of its classic titles and released them in Apple’s App Store as a Greatest Hits collection app. The app is free to download and includes a complimentary copy of Pong. The 99 additional games, however, must be purchased as part of an in-app payment system.
The collection includes 18 titles from Atari arcades as well as 92 Atari 2600 titles (there’s some overlap in titles covered by the two gaming systems). Games are sold in packs of three or four for $0.99 or users can opt to purchase the entire collection for $14.99. Some of the games include BlueTooth support to enable multiplayer modes.
Gamers old enough to feel nostalgic for Atari can look forward to a healthy collection of titles ported on to their iPhones or iPads. Highlights includeMissile CommandSpace RaidersSuper Breakout, and Centipede 2600. Some retro-game enthusiasts will be disappointed to find some notable absences, namely Pitfall and Pac-Man. Atari also made sure to include multiple versions of some titles,  to be sure and satisfy the Atari-connoisseur.
It’s not Atari’s first venture into the iOS. The former gaming powerhouse has released updated versions ofCentipede, Missile Command and Super Breakout as individual apps. Retro-gaming has become something of a fad in Apple’s App Store. Last year, a developer released an MS DOS emulator that included versions of Wolfenstein 3DDuke Nukem and Major Stryker. There’s also a Commodore 64 emulator that includes the titles International KarateSuper Pipeline and Space Taxi.
