Ever wanted to immerse yourself in a field of nostalgia? Ever wanted to be teleported to a fad from your parent’s times? It’s possible with Atari’s Greatest Hits!

The app is an emulator of the Atari Arcade Systems and the Atari 2600. It comes with 100 Atari Arcade and Atari 2600 games. The game is free on the app store, but it only comes with one game. To get the rest of the games, you must do an in-app purchase of $14.99 or pay $1.99 for Packs of 4 games.

I have to say, this is the closest you can get to the Atari experience without actually playing the Atari Arcade and Atari 2600 systems. They have the best 100 game collection from 70’s and early 80’s Atari Games. The Graphics of the games themselves are exactly as if you had the olden games on your TV. The controls are very good except the Numpad. When a game used the Numpad, they had a cover with the game to put on the Numpad so you can know how to use it for that game. Here, they don’t have the Numpad Covers included so you will probably have to look up the controls.

Overall, the game is very good if you’re not on a tight budget. If you aren’t on a tight budget, the game ranks 8.25/10. But if you are on a tight budget for iTunes cash, this game is a 6.75/10.

If you have an app you would like me to review, post it in the comments!

zmarffy’s note: I think this emu is horrible because of the wonky controls. I would not pay for any of the games.
