I have been waiting for a good version of some Atari retro c classics to hit the DS for a while now. The old DS Atari pack is a pathetic POC, but this new one looks to make up for it and more!
This $29.99 pack has about 50 games included. There are both arcade classics as well as Atari 2600 favorites:
Atari Arcade Classics
Asteroids, Battlezone, Centipede, Gravitar, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Space Duel, Tempest
Atari 2600 Favorites
3D Tic-Tac-Toe, Adventure, Air-Sea Battle, Asteroids, Atari Video Cube, Basketball, Battlezone, Bowling, Centipede, Championship Soccer, Dodge ’Em, Flag Capture, Football, Fun with Numbers, Gravitar, Hangman, Haunted House, Home Run, Human Cannonball, Math Gran Prix, Miniature Golf, Missile Command, Outlaw, Realsports Baseball, Realsports Boxing, Realsports Football, Realsports Tennis, Realsports Volleyball, Sky Diver, Slot Maching, Slot Racers, Sprintmasters, Starship, Stella Track, Submarine Commander, Surround, Swordquest Earthworld, Swordquest Fireworld, Swordquest Waterworld, Tempest, Video Checkers
You can even play head to head via Wifi with other DS players in the same room. Space Duel is one of my favorite games of all time, and I cannot wait to try it out on the DS. I hope they make a 7800 + Atari 5200 + Atari XE pack next. Maybe they can follow that up with an Atari ST Pack, and then a Jaguar / Lynx Pack!!!
We are looking to get a copy to give away, so keep your fingers crossed that we do. We’ll probably have some sort of a micro-retro game development contest to pick the winner.
