| Atari Retro Classics

One of DS' launch games, Retro Atari Classics features ten classic arcade titles in one, including Pong, Missile Command, Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, Tempest, Warlords, Gravatar, Lunar Lander and Sprint.

Each game is playable in two modes: the classic arcade mode that made such an impact in the Seventies and Eighties, and a new 'Tagged' mode, with graphics that have been re-designed by leading graffiti artists. The DS’ unique touch-screen will be used to provide precision control and up to four players can go head to head using the handheld’s built in wireless networking connection. Brothers and sisters can be put in their place with the two-player mode that can be played using the same DS. You can see the differences between the two modes in the pictures; which do you prefer?
