Atari’s Greatest Hits is a joyous, faithful recreation of a hundred vintage videogames on the iPad, from icons such as Centipede to rarities like Major Havoc. If you knew these games in the 1970s and 1980s, though, you know that there’s no way a virtual on-screen joystick can replace the real thing. Atari Arcade sets things right by turning an iPad or iPad 2 into a tiny arcade machine that’s compatible with Greatest Hits, complete with a joystick and buttons. It feels so authentic you may try to feed it quarters.
