100 Atari Classics Come To Android Handhelds
By James Grahame
Atari's Greatest Hits package for the iPhone has scored over 3.5 million downloads to date. In response, the company has unveiled the same package for Android users. The core app is available for free download and includes Missile Command. If you like what you see, you can purchase all 100 Atari 2600 and arcade titles for $9.99, or mix and match from 25 4-game packs at 99 cents each.
My only complaint (apart from the obvious lack of physical game buttons) is that there's quite a lot of padding in the collection. For example, the Centipede pack includes the arcade versions of Centipede and Millipede along with their not-quite-so-fun Atari 2600 home equivalents.
Still, this looks like tons of fun for Android aficionados with a strong retro gaming streak and the price is more than fair.
