Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Nostalgic moments should be sweet and brief. Thankfully, the trial version of this Atari game package lasts only five minutes. Atari Arcade Hits is a collection of six of the company's earliest and most popular video games, including the classics Pong, Centipede, Asteroids, Tempest, Missile Command, and Super Breakout. Thus, you probably know what to expect: fairly primitive graphics, lots of beeping and static, awkward controls and repetitive action. But isn't that why we loved these games in the first place? Simple to use and entertaining--if not just for a moment--this program won't disappoint old-school Atari fans. Play for five minutes, then put the program back on the shelf with your other '80s games to collect dust.
