Classic Atari games come to Android

Posted by Mike Luttrell

The app that became an instant classic for iPad and iPhone owners has finally made its way to Android devices.

The Atari Greatest Hits app has been downloaded more than 3.5 million times on the iTunes App Store, making it one of the most popular games for the platform.

And why wouldn't it be? With classic Atari titles like Missile Command, Asteroids, and Pong, it's the perfect casual gaming solution to ease the commute or just kill some time.

The app contains an impressive 100 games in total, available for $9.99.

Or, for those who don't think they would ever actually play through 100 different Atari titles, there are game packs available at 99 cents a pop.

It's the latest platform for Atari, which has managed to extend the legacy of those vintage old-school games for decades, and they're still as popular as ever.

"The #1 selling Atari's Greatest Hits continues to expand its reach to new operating systems, devices and territories. It exemplifies our company goals as we shift our core focus towards delivering casual gaming experiences through mobile and social platforms," said Atari in a statement.

The Atari Greatest Hits app is available now on the Android Market.
