Atari fans rejoice! The Atari.com website has just gotten a facelift, and one of the great new features of the site is an arcade with a number of classic Atari game for you to play in your web browser.
So far, the Atari Arcade includes web-playable Flash versions of four arcade classics: Asteroids, Battlezone, Crystal Castles, and Lunar Lander. Hopefully, they’ll add more games in the not-too-distant future. I want my Dig-Dug and Paperboy! They’ve also thrown in versions of a couple of classic 2600 games, Yar’s Revenge and Adventure. Each of the games is a faithful recreation of the original, with the addition of a global high score leaderboard.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the new Atari Arcade, and play without fear of ever running out of quarters again.
Really, how can you not love a game with instructions that read: “The primary objective of the game is to break a path through the shield, and destroy the Qotile with a blast from the Zorlon Cannon”?
