2014 may be all about the PS4 versus the Xbox One, but back in the early 1980s, there was no question which game console ruled supreme. Though it launched in the late 1970s, the Atari 2600 became the centerpiece of the family living room in the decade that followed. Who can forget shooting your friend's tank with a single-pixel-sized missile in "Combat," jumping over 8-bit logs in "Pitfall," or slaying some very boxy dragons in "Adventure?"
Both Android and iPhone provide a couple of different ways to play Atari games. Available on both platforms, Atari's Greatest Hits lets you download and play some of the company's most popular titles in packs of four for 99 cents each, though "Missile Command" comes free. On Android, you can also download 2600.emu, a $2.99 app that allows you to run old Atari ROMs, though downloading the ROMs themselves may be a copyright violation. There are also a number of Atari-style games available as standalone apps, including AirFox free for Android, which looks suspiciously like "River Raid," and "Breakout Boost" for iOS, which is made by Atari itself.
