    Thanks, grabbed and installed :)

    From what it says in the game, all downloads will be free forever... UNTIL you re-install the game on your iOS device.

    As much as I stay away from Apple devices, sometimes I wish I had one (or two [see MBP with retina display])

    mebbe - but after looking through the list of games they have.. i'm quite disappointed.

    no river raid, no plaque attack, no barnstorming etc... so i doubt i really can be bothered putting them on the ipad too.

    I agree, I was disappointed too. How can a "Greatist Hits" compilation not include River Raid!!?? :confused:

    I was hoping it included Tomcat F14, but no. Absolutely loved that game when I was a kid!

    Because its an Atari Greatest Hits compilation, and not Activision's Greatest Hits?

    Looks like it's finished :thumbdn:

    I just tried now and it's trying to charge me 99c for 4 games or $10 for all 100.

    Ah that would make sense. I was thinking Atari Greatest Hits as in Atari the console, not developer. Wasn't familiar with the app before now.

    Yeah a good chunk of the games in there are Arcade ports, so it's not specifically the Atari VCS, but anything Atari. Mind you I'd love to see an Activision or Imagic's greatest hits on there :)

    Man I love lunar lander. I still remember playing some web version of it as a kid on our old 486.
