We're now applying our 28 years of continuous activity as a game developer and publisher to put together this next great 'Retro Games' app. Were committed to improving and further developing the App in the weeks and months ahead and to adding to the In-App Shop further packs and games such as, we hope:

drelbs's comments:


Cheezy title, but it's legit!

10 old games for a buck.

Too bad it's not universal.

I'm assuming the other Elite one-off titles will be included in this in the future.

Glad they're doing the Atari Collection bit where you can buy the rest all at once at a discount.

Very interesting how Bard's Tale 1 is in this collection, but it's always called by its subtitle "Tales of the Unknown" - I haven't been able to find the words "Bard's Tale" anywhere within the game or instructions. I guess the name would have to be licensed separately.

I'm excited that they're managing to secure licenses to these games.

Good collection but I tought other of the stand alone titles were gonna be included in this one, are they gonna come as iaps? Because im held on buying them in the hopes of having them all in a single app.

This game was supposed to be out here a long time ago isnt it? Im guessing the original lineup changed in the final build.

Very nice collection though and an excellent deal.
