Activision Releases 45 Atari Classics for Android
Fans of classic games will be excited to hear about the Activision anthology now available on the Google Play Store.
It contains 45 classic titles but even though the app is free most of the games will require you to pay to play them.
Downloading the app allows you to play Kaboom! for free, however, other games such as River Raid, Pitfall, Stampede and Demon Attack will require payment. Activision is offering bundle packs of 11 games for $2.99 so it is not too expensive. For the time being there is a special offer of $6.99 for the entire collection.
The collection comes with bonuses which allow players to collect digital versions of the game patches which were available in the 1980s. The collection is fully integrated with Facebook and Game Center including leaderboards and achievements.
The app also includes free copies of all the game manuals and box art which are sure to bring back fond memories for 80s gaming enthusiasts.
Overall it seems to be a pretty good package with a reasonable price tag. Anyone who grew up playing the Atari 2600 games is sure to love this app and the trip down memory lane it is sure to inspire.
