I have been a HUGE fan of Atari since way back before I can remember. Starting with an Asteroids arcade machine and the Atari 2600, both of which I coveted every time my family went to the mall. The countless quarters I dropped in the arcade titles like Asteroids, Battlezone, and Tempest spent awe struck the whole time. I have spent a huge amount of my time and my allowance with Atari games.

Well now Atari has released some of their greatest hits, 100 in all, in a single universal iOS app. And I’m instantly transported back to those early times with Atari from my oh-so-long-ago youth. Many of my favorite arcade games and Atari 2600 games are included and available to unlock . The app includes packs of games which are variations on the different titles for purchase in-app for $0.99 each or $14.99 for all of them. $14.99 for 100 Atari games in my pocket? Yes, please!

While Atari has told us that this is not the Atari classic games pack we’ve been expecting for the iCade iPad arcade dock, we hope that will be coming soon! For now we’ll have to make ourselves happy with this app on the iPad and the iPhone.

For a full list of the games on the app, hit the jump.

Think of all the quarters I could have saved back in the 80s!
