Now you can get your Atari gaming fix on your favorite Android device

Now you can get your Atari gaming fix on your favorite Android device
Back in April, Atari released its Greatest Hits collection to iOS devices. Retro gamers were able to get their nostalgia fix on 100 classics for $14.99.  Atari has now released an Android counterpart.

Right now, in the Android Market, you can download the Atari Greatest Hits app and receive access to Missile Command for free. There are 100 games available for the app that Atari has broken down into 25 separate game packs. Each pack costs $.99 and contains 4 games. If you know you’re the kind of person that just has to have them all, Atari is also offing the entire collection at a discounted rate of $9.99.

Some of the titles available for purchase are Centipede, Asteroids, Tempest, Battlezone, Black Widow, Crystal Castles, Gravitar, Star Raiders, Pong, Lunar Lander, Super Breakout, Major Havoc, Warlords, Adventure, 3D Tic-Tac-Toe, Fatal Run, Quadrun, Casino, Swordquest, Championship Soccer, Football, Realsports Basketball, Realsports Football, Super Breakout 2600 and Hangman.

The Atari Greatest Hits app is compatible with both Android phones and tablets. The app allows for single player and local multiplayer. Many of the games have greyed out options and "coming soon" graphics for online multiplayer and leaderboards, which strongly suggests that network support will be added very soon.

There is no word yet on an Android compatible version of the Atari Arcade Duo or Android 4.0 game controller support, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see either of those options in the future considering Atari’s continued push into mobile platforms.

There should be a converter which will convert iOS Apps into Android Apps. That will make developers life easier.
