Nokia today announced that it has shipped Atari Masterpieces Volume 1 for the N-Gage platform. This bumper pack includes not just one but eight classic games such as Asteroids, Battlezone, Black Widow, Millipede, Missile Command, Red Baron, Lunar Lander and Super Breakout.
Some things are better left untouched and the proof can be found here with original graphics and game play together with a host of tips and tricks. However, gamers can now revisit these old favourites while they are on the move!
For those who get their biggest thrill from showing off, gamers can upload their high scores on the N-Gage Arena, and compete worldwide for the title of retro gaming guru. As an added bonus gamers will also have the opportunity to unlock additional Atari 2600 titles - 2600 Adventure, 2600 Surround, 2600 Video Chess and 2600 Yar's Revenge.
"Atari Masterpieces shows how originality can stand the test of time," said Gregg Sauter, Director, Games Publishing, Nokia. "Nokia has created a worldwide league table within N-Gage Arena so retro gaming enthusiasts now have a forum to tell who is truly the king of the old school."
This collection will be followed by Atari Masterpieces Volume 2 next year.
