To celebrate the 40th Anniversary since the launch of Pong, Atari and Microsoft have partnered to allow gamers to play eight classic Atari video games via any HTML5-enabled browser. Asteroids, Combat, Centipede, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, and Yar’s Revenge are available to play in Atari’s Arcade. For Microsoft, it’s an opportunity to demonstrate the power of HTML5. For Atari, it’s a chance to market Atari’s games to a new generation. For us oldies, it’s a chance to relive our youth. 🙂 The games are optimised for touch, and most include multiplayer options via a special link or Facebook.
