What's New in Version 2.0.0
•Fixed compatibility with iOS 8.
A 2nd Gen Historic Collectible, but Should Add MFi and Orientation Fixes
A Beautiful Collector's and Atari Gamer's Treasure compete with many games, manuals, and documents at a great value. At face value, it's also slickly designed with a hardware-collector-style interface and a lot of difficulty/mode/control options. And at the core, the emulations are near-perfect. But it needs to work better without having to rotate the device frequently while using the app and should have MFi Wireless Controller support.
Now, allow me to talk about the rotation issues. The app design requires you to frequently rotate the device: Some games are in Portrait; most I've played are in Landscape. The game-select interface is always portrait: This should support landscape like most of the games to allow a stationary / docked device. Apple TV supports mirroring with this title limitedly. The trouble is the device, control centers, and Apple TV acts like it is in Portrait View when this app is running even when it is rotated. A workaround 'fix' for this is double-press your home key to multitask the app and then re-select it. I had that correct the orientation to landscape on Apple TV.
I tried submitting my ideas on Atari's site instead, but the form didn't confirm my submission. Atari: Keep Brining Atari Classics into the Modern Era !!
iOS 8 issues
If you are or have upgraded to iOS 8 do not buy this app. iOS 8 makes the joysticks and switches disappear but more importantly it won't let you download any games even if you have bought them. I hope Atari updates this app even though I am not holding my breath. It never was updated when the iPhone 5 came out to take advantage of the bigger screen. If they update it to fix those issues this will be a fantastic app that I would highly recommend. I became addicted to bowling on this even though I never owned the game when it came out. It works wonderfully with both the iCade and the 8 bitty.
Update: Thank you Atari!!! I tried to get through to support the issues but from their website and the problems seen in the press I thought it was a lost cause. In fact I went to see if it was even for sale and saw it was pulled from the app
store. The next day they brought V 2 out. Needless to say it made for an awesome Friday. Thank you again Atari!!! Unlocked all games. Best $$ I have spent yet in the App Store.
Worthless since IOS 8
I bought this game because it included GRAVITAR. It is a very hard game but fun to play when you master it. However since the update to IOS 8 it won't play. The control buttons disappear. I hope they fix this glitch. Then it gets 5 stars. 😊
~~~ UPDATE ~~~
Now that they have fixed the IOS8 glitch it works. I was very good at this game when it was actually an arcade game. I completed through invisible reverse gravity. On the arcade game you could control the 5 control buttons independently and have absolute control. On the iPad I find I'm using only my thumbs so I don't have the control I had on the arcade game. That being said, it's still lots of fun. 😊
