Product Description

Play classic old-school games
Atari's Greatest Hits PRO
Get all your childhood favorites
Relive the Golden Age of Gaming

Do you remember playing Centipede or Asteroids at the arcade in the 1980s? Wouldn't it be great to relive these and other games from your childhood? With Atari's Greatest Hits PRO, you get a collection of the most popular retro games from the '70s and '80s--including nine free games. Now you don't need a time machine to get the classic gaming experience of yesterday. You just need this app and an Android device.

Atari's Greatest Hits PRO gives you access to 100 classic Atari 2600 and arcade games. This extensive catalog pays homage to each of the originals, with controls designed to mimic what Atari fans remember from 30 years ago. You can buy games like Pong, Tempest, Crystal Castles, and many more. For those who love the classic gaming experience, this handheld breakthrough is sure to guarantee hours of fun.

What's more, Atari's Greatest Hits PRO includes nine free games with your purchase of the app. That's eight more games than the free version of the app, in which Missile Command is the only game included.

So Many Ways to Play

When you download Atari's Greatest Hits PRO, you'll get nine games for free: Pong, Missile Command, Missile Command 2600, Centipede, Millipede, Centipede 2600 and Millipede 2600, Basic Math, and Flag Capture. You'll also get the original gaming cabinet and box art--a great way to complete the retro experience.

You can also purchase additional Atari games quickly and easily from within this app. Choose from 25 separate packs, each of which contains three to four individual Atari games. (For example, the Adventure 4-pack contains the well-loved game Adventure, as well as Haunted House, Return to Haunted House, and Save Mary.) These packs are priced quite affordably.

In the non pro version of this app you only get one free game. If you are considering buying all the games for $9.99 do it from the free version. This app does not give the feature nor is it in the description. I have to agree with all the bad reviewers. Two dollars (the stated value of this app) on the free version of the app would only get you about 6 additional games. However you always get the option to buy all the games for $9.99. Its a good value for a die hard Atari fan to say the least. This "PRO" version is less than pro. Sure you get 9 games for the $1.99 but no option to buy the rest for $8 additional dollars. Other reviewers insist that it is there but it's not in the description and I didn't find it as readily as the free version of this app.

As far as a choice for FAOTD Amazon failed us because the app was already free for the die hard fans that were going to spend money on the games. It is a good value for causal gamers who would not spend any additional money. But even if you had a favorite atari title and it was not one of the free 9... the free app plus .99 gets you the game you want plus two others that are similar to it. Again the free app is more "Professional" than the Pro version.

As an Atari fan, I wanted to like this app. However, from the bad design to the greed on which the games are sold, I am disgusted by this attempt. Shame in you Atari!

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading December 25, 2011
By Mike
This is a very silly use of FAOTD. There is nothing "free" about it, just a front for a store to spend your money. Sad and lame.
Merry Christmas everyone!!

Wow, this is a tricky little money run being played. Today, I was looking to buy all the games, since I know the non-Pro version of this app allows you to buy all 100 games for $9.99. I've checked every option in this Pro version and it only allows the purchase of about 4 games at a time for 99 cents per set of about 4 games. So to get all 100 via this Pro version would cost way more than buying all 100 for $9.99 via the non-pro version. (Total cost to get all 100 via the Pro version would be over $20.)

I also noticed, the Amazon app store offers both the Pro and non-Pro versions. The Google Play Store (Google's App store aka Android Market) only offers the non-Pro version. So at this point, Google better protects their customers from over paying in the long run. Amazon did offer this Pro version for free once as the Free App of the Day. For us who got it on that one free day, we basically won an opportunity to try a handful more games and also be taken for a ride in possibly overpaying in the long run.

So, I'm uninstalling this Amazon app store Pro version. And I'm goimg to use Google Play to install and purchase all 100 games. Take note Amazon, you should not have played this "game" with me. Now Google will get $9.99 from me that could have been yours.

I don't appreciate Atari trying to pull this on me either. But what can I say, for $10 I'm willing to pay. Just not via their enabler Amazon. This also makes me further dislike the idea of ever buying an Amazon Android device that locks customers into the Amazon app store and is not compatible with Google Play. I'll keep my Android app buying freedom and not buy any Amazon devices.

4.0 out of 5 stars app downloaded directly to SD card December 25, 2011
By Jeanne
Verified Purchase
I have an HTC EVO 3D (Android 2.3), when I downloaded this app, it moved automatically to the SD card.
I played Centipede, it was just the same as I remember in high school, though nothing can truly recreate spinning that trackball in the arcade. Darn spiders got me every time, just like old times. It was enjoyable, fun, and such a simpler video game world back then. Exactly what I needed after a night of assembling toys with 500 screws & wrapping presents, these Atari old school games are a quite relaxing. Thanks Amazon!
Merry Christmas everyone!! :)

First review ever...felt the need to defend. Can't figure out what the big fuss is about. Works great on my Asus Tablet. Controls for each game is customizable for preference. Touch sensitivity c a n also be customized. I suggest downloading the game and trying it out yourself, instead of judging it from someone else's experience.

It's EXACTLY as described. You get 9 games free. Yes, they are all there. 4 games are in the arcade section, the other 5 are in the console section. Click on the Arcade Cabinet icon to get the arcade games. Click on the Joystick to get the console games. Yes, if you want other games, you have to buy them. Everything is exactly as described.

If you didn't know the joy of an atari, or it's much sleeker cousin the 2600, then you missed out. However I did and this app was a nice reminder of how fun it was.
