Atari's Greatest Hits: 100 retro titles for iOS

Missile Command, from Atari's Greatest Hits

Missile Command!

Rejoice, retro gamers – Atari has donned its Fairy Godmother costume, and is bringing 100 old-school games to your iOS device. Atari’s Greatest Hits is a Universal app (so it’ll work on your iPhone and your iPad), and also brings with it original cabinet and box art along with the timeless titles.

The app itself is a free download, with PONG thrown in for free. If you want to add to your library, there are 92 Atari 2600 games and 18 classic arcade releases available as in-app purchases. Pick them up either as 25 separate game packs for $0.99 each, or fork over $14.99 to pick up all 100.

…and while many of them are just the same as you remember, some are even better with the addition of Bluetooth multiplayer.

Atari and ION Audio have teamed up to make one of last year’s [surl=http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/retro-gaming/e762/]ThinkGeek[/surl] April Fool’s Day pranks a reality – the iCade enclosure is now a totally legitimate product.

ThinkGeek's iCade

iCade - it's real!

This new gaming cabinet turns your iPad into a nifty little retro experience, connecting to the tablet via Bluetooth and giving you a familiar-feeling joystick and some buttons to mash. How better to test it out than play through some of the 100 classics included in Atari’s Greatest Hits? I know of at least one old-school gamer who’s snapped this one up, and I bet that number will increase before the day is out.
