Atari announced over the weekend that they had released a Greatest Hits pack for Android, dropping 100 classic titles in the Market.  Retro gamers will have the option to pick up one of 25 game bundles at a rate of 99¢ or the entire pack at a discounted $9.99 rate.  The “Greatest Hits” title itself is free for 2.2 and Android above and comes with Missile Command.  We checked it against a number of our devices and found it works for phones and tablets alike.

If you’re like us, you’re in your mid-30′s and and have strong memories of some of these games .  We’re not even going to bother with the small 99¢ packs; we’re jumping straight to the full Monty.  Who else could pass up the opportunity to grab faves such as Centipede, Asteroids, Tempest, Pong, Super Breakout, and a ton of others for a ten spot?
