Atari's Greatest Hits app lands on iPad and iPhone

Another app to breathe new life into an old medium

Atari has granted the dreams of millions of retro gaming fans by launching its 100 greatest titles for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The Atari's Greatest Hits app is free to download and comes packing a copy of Pong with the other 99 available to buy as in-app purchases. Most of the games are from the cherished Atari 2600 machine, with 18 from the arcades also up for grabs.

You can buy the entire library of 100 games, including such gaming luminaries as Asteroids, Centipede and Battlezone, for a mere $14.99 (less than a tenner) or chose 25 packs of four for just 99c each.

The app even features Bluetooth connectivity so you can play head-to-head on games like Warlord and Pong and each game features the original cabinet and cover art. The app is also optimised for the iPad so there's no need to mess about scaling up the app to fit the screen of your tablet.

If you're worried about how the games will translate using the touchscreen of your iPad then we'd recommend this little stroke of genius which is approved by Atari.

We love how new tech can make old tech new again. Hopefully Atari's attempts to breathe new life into it's massive library of beloved title can inspire the makers of this dead tech to do the same.
