Atari 50’s free update arrives, and here’s the full list of 12 new games

The new update is here for Atari’s already excellent celebration, and includes 2600 games, homebrew , and even something from the Lynx .

Go back in time. Again

If you missed Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration, then you missed what was legitimately one of the best-produced ‘collections’… maybe ever. The title was loaded with lots of games, plus an interactive museum that somehow managed to be actually interesting, retelling Atari’s lengthy history.

But that collection was apparently a work in progress, as the company recently revealed that a series of post-launch updates would deliver even more games for the set. At the time of the initial announcement, there was no word on what those drops would actually include, but now with the arrival of the first such update, we’ve got the list.

Mainly loaded up with Atari 2600 titles (some previously unreleased), “the holiday update” also includes homebrew games as well. And yes, there’s even an inclusion from the Lynx handheld, in the form of Warbirds.

The complete list of incoming titles includes:

  • Adventure II (homebrew) 2600
  • Bowling 2600
  • Double Dunk 2600
  • Maze Craze 2600
  • Miniature Golf 2600
  • MotoRodeo 2600
  • Aquaventure (prototype) 2600
  • Save Mary (prototype) 2600
  • Super Football 2600
  • Return to Haunted House (homebrew) 2600
  • Circus Atari 2600
  • Warbirds Lynx

All of the above is out right now, and all editions of Atari 50 should be good to go to grab the download. Stay tuned as well, because as mentioned this is just the start of the fun, and more free updates for Atari 50 are expected. There’s no dating on any future drops just yet however, but we do know that they won’t include just games, as “more in-depth interviews”, and “behind-the-scenes goodies” are coming up too.
