Game Details


Six old Atari Arcade classics can now be played on your PC in Atari Arcade Hits: Volume 1 CD-ROM Game. Choose from Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, or Tempest, each shown on the screen the way they looked when you first stood in front of them in an Arcade and emulated with minute details such as Asteroids' inability to show three initials in the tenth spot on the high scores list.

Players can go into the configure box and modify the way each game is played. There are options for enhanced graphics, a "trippy mode" for Asteroids, and the ability to tweak difficulty levels, among others. There are even desktop themes to choose from which will replace the wallpaper, screensaver, icons, and sounds in your PC with ones related to your favorite Atari game.

Each game is playable with a joystick, mouse, or keyboard and the developers focused on emulating the feel of the trackball in games like Centipede and Missile Command. The same is true of the knob used to play Tempest, Pong, and Super Breakout.

Players with access to the web can go to the official Atari web site and enter their high scores into the company's server. Who's the best Tempest player in the United States? You can find out there.

Finally, there's also an Atari archives section full of interviews with founder Nolan Bushnell and pictures from the early days of the company's success both in the Arcades and in the home with the Atari 2600.

Cheat Codes / Walkthroughs


Hints
Turn your mousepad sideways when playing Pong to give
yourself more room for up-and-down lateral movement.

Be flexible in your choice of controllers. Games like
Pong and Centipede work best with a mouse; others, such
as Battlezone, are best played with a joystick.

Enhanced graphics are available for most of the games,
but this setting has been turned off by default at the
Configuration screen. Be sure to toggle this option on
for a much more attractive gaming session.
