Mobile Wizardry To Release Atari 2600 Emulator
MobileWizardry and Mobile Digital Media (MDM) have announced the upcoming release of a Atari 2600 emulator, named "Atari Retro."
The software collection contains a complete Atari 2600 emulation engine using original cartridge ROM images to give that classic original in front of the television while with game console quality. The product is officially branded and licensed in collaboration with Atari.
Initial titles that will be included in the Atari Retro package include: Adventure, Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, Missile Command, Pong, Yars Revenge, and others.
The release is set for the christmas season on MMC card - bundled with a number of selected Atari 2600 game images. Individual game releases for sale over the Internet via sites such as PalmGear, Handango are being planned and exact details will be provided at a later date. The pricing of this MMC product is yet to be announced.
Aaron Ardiri co-founder of Mobile Wizardry says, "The development of the Atari 2600 emulator has been a challenging, yet enjoyable task - with many hurdles in the path to completion. We had to step closely around to achieve what we originally had set out to do. It surely has been one of the most complex machines to emulate! The authentic graphics and sounds will bring you right back to the mid-seventies - like when you sat in front of the TV as a child."
