Atari App Hits the iPhone

In October of 1977 the Atari was launched and quickly entered almost every household across the country. Most children and even adults of the 80s were captivated by Pong, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Pitfall and more. Oh, to go back to the days of playing Atari while I drank Tang in my french rolled jeans.

Now in 2011, the named second best video game console of all time, has hit the iPhone. Everyone can play the infamous 40 year old games in their updated form via the Atari Greatest Hits app. The free app comes with Pong, then you can purchase additional game packs including 4 games for $0.99. Or, purchase all 100 Atari Games for $14.99.

If you need me, sorry, I’ll be out for a bit while I play some 3D Tic-Tac-Toe.
