Customer Reviews

Great to be able to see / better controls needed

This is a great release. It is so much fun to see these games again. Just hearing the sounds will take you back.

I am sure it is hard to take a game that was built for Atari and run it on touch / gyro for the iPhone, but I'd like them to take another crack at the controls. Right now it is more of a 'neat to see' opportunity than an actual game. It's a shame too. My kids are very excited to play these old games.

Perhaps consider an AppleTV mode to run the game on a tv screen (like we used to) and devote the phone to controls. Apple has to be thinking about doing this anyway. Tons of games could be powered this way. Think of the opportunities for these old games and the current / future games on iOS (multiplayer, flight sims with dedicated controls, custom feedback...)

Looking forward to updates.


Controls are completely unresponsive. Waste of 7 bucks and a whole lot of frustration for a few moments of nostalgia.

Crashes after in-app purchase & won't run

Purchased on iPhone 5, ran fine until I purchased the complete collection for $6.99. Now it crashes immediately on startup. Appears to work on my iPad 3 but the purchased games are still locked. Please fix!
