Before there was Battlefield 3, the Call of Duty franchise, Skyrim, and even the original Grand Theft Auto (never mind the upcoming GTA V release), there was, well, Centipede. And Pong, Asteroids, Adventure, and scores of other blocky titles for the Atari 2600 and related consoles. Now you can relive some of those nostalgic gaming moments on your Android device.
Previously available only through iTunes where it amassed 3.5 million downloads, Atari's Greatest Hits app has now landed in the Android Marketplace. Gamers who download the app will receive Missile Command for free and have access to a catalog of 100 old-school Atari titles via 25 separate game packs for $0.99 each, or grab the entire collection for a discounted price of $9.99.
"Relive the Golden Age of Gaming with a collection of the most popular retro games from the 70s and 80s," the app's description reads. "This extensive catalog pays homage to each of the originals, with controls designed to mimic what Atari fans remember from 30 years ago! For those who love the classic gaming experience, this handheld breakthrough is sure to guarantee hours of fun.
Each separate game pack includes four titles (math is fun!), save for the Hangman game pack, which includes three games (Hangman, Black Jack, and Steeplechase). Throw in the free Missile Command game, and BAM, there's your 100 titles.
