Atari Releasing 100 Classic Games for iPhone, iPad
The smart fellows over at Touch Arcade keep a close eye on the Apple’s New Zealand App Store this time of week because the time difference gives a sneak peek at big new game releases that drop every Thursday. Among today’s releases: Atari’s Greatest Hits, an iPhone and iPad app that packs 100 arcade and Atari 2600 games.
Games in the app are divided into 25 packs of five games each, and each pack sells for $0.99 through in-app purchases (the app itself is free and includes Pong). Or you can opt to snag all 100 games for $14.99, which is a pretty good deal, considering. The rest of the titles comprise 18 classic arcade titles and 92 Atari 2600 games.
Most of the games are unchanged from their old-school versions, but several have been amped up to include Bluetooth multiplayer with other players.
