Atari and Internet Explorer bring to life, classic gaming at Atari Arcade

Atari has announced the release of 8 classic titles on the occasion of its 40th anniversary. The titles have been re-built from scratch specifically for HTML5 and touch controls and will be fully compatible on Tablets using multi-touch gestures and multi-player mode. The 8 games are, Asteroids, Centipede, Combat, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout and Yars Revenge.

The Atari Arcade brings more “experienced” Gen Xers a chance to relive those Saturday afternoons, without blowing their monthly mortgage payment or grocery budget. And Millennials can discover the joys of old-school gaming firsthand, while using the touch-first browsing capabilities that are part of Internet Explorer 10.

With this improvement, Atari Arcade now comes to life and offers you a new gaming experience on a Windows 8 touch device and Internet Explorer 10. It also works great in IE9 on a Windows 7 PC, or any other modern browser.

For developers, the team has created an opportunity to build your own games for the Atari Arcade platform.
