I still remember when I bought my DS and bought the Atari Retro set that was out at the time. I felt betrayed by that set. The “new” versions made all the graphics look like urban graffiti in a seeming attempt to make the game more “kewl” and the controls were awful. I felt as if they had stolen my money and my memories. Now they have released another set. This time they got Jeff “Emulator God” Vavasour and Co. to do the emulation. Apology accepted! this is really like carrying around nine arcade machines, an Atari 2600 VCS, and a large group of cartidges in your pocket. The emulation is spot-on. Code Mystics is a new name, but the people involved are from the legendary Digital Eclypse. They pioneered the art of commercial arcade emulation and are still doing it. This is a lesson to young video gamers and a guilty pleasure/blast to the past for us older gamers who had 2600 systems in the 80s and went to the local convenience stores to pump quarters into the machines. Thanks, Atari. This time you hit the target spot-on. Now to go pre-order volume 2.

Love this game and can’t wait for Vol 2 to be released. I had an Atari 2600 growing up with a large library of games back in the day. I just can’t believe that 50 Atari 2600 games and arcade games also fit on this one cartridge and can be taken with me anywhere I go. Having the original arcade games in addition to the classic 2600 games is also a bonus. I don’t notice any problems or slow down on any of the games at all. Every game on here I have had on my Atari 2600 or played the arcade game in the arcades. Atari also included the Us Army training version of Battlezone that was never released in the arcades. I remember back in the 80′s reading about it in arcade magazines and now you can play the game on the DS. What I thought was also nice is the instructions for the Atari 2600 games are also included in digital format on the cartridge for viewing.
