Atari has announced the release of Atari's Greatest Hits
, a collection of more than 100 classic arcade and 2600 titles for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
Boasting standouts like Adventure, Missile Command
, and Centipede, Atari's Greatest Hits
is distributed through a series of 99-cent game packs downloadable from a free core application.
Users may also opt to buy the full 110 game collection, priced at $14.99. The app offers a single game, Pong
Each game included in Atari's Greatest Hits features
its original cabinet or box art, along with other extras. Select titles (e.g. Warlords
) also feature multiplayer gameplay over a Bluetooth connection.
The multi-game release contrasts the approach many other developers have taken with the iOS App Store; companies like Namco and Taito previously opted for individual releases or remakes for classics like Pac-Man, Space Invaders
, and Dig Dug
Also featured in Atari's collection are a number of well-regarded vector display games, including Major Havoc, Tempest, Black Widow
, and Battlezone
