This application is free to download and you will get a free copy of Pong. Other titles have to be purchased via the in-app payment system.

The full collection includes 92 games from the classic Atari 2600 console, and eighteen arcade titles. They are sold in packs of three or four at $0.99, or you can get the whole collection for $14.99. A selection of the games has Bluetooth support so you can play your friends.

Some of the games in the collection include Missile Command, Super Breakout, and Centipede 2600. A few major games missing though include Pac-Man and Pitfall. Atari have included different versions of certain games to keep the Atari fan happy. The application is available worldwide on the App Store.

The retro market is increasing with the news yesterday about the relaunched Commodore 64, which although will have modern tech inside, will still be able to play some of those classic titles.
