Those boys and girls at Atari are really milking it. They’re releasing a compilation for the DS featuring 50 of their best games. So, Atari Greatest Hits Vol. 1 will have Pong, Asteroids, Missile Command, Lunar Lander, Centipede and… er, the rest.
It’ll have multiplayer modes enabled too, however. Thanks to the wonders of future-tech, all head-to-head titles will have single-card and multi-card multiplayer.
And if you are unhealthily, worringly, bafflingly interested in Atari classics, they also include the old manuals for each game, as well as a trivia quiz.
The PR release boasts that “a retro gaming revolution will be ignited on the Nintendo DS.” Normally the word ‘revolution’ implies progress. But I guess they’re using it in the ‘endlessly repeating cycle’ sense.
