Nice try, but no cigar... by LS650
This app emulates the classic old Atari 2600 VCS gaming system. I collect old Atari items, so I was really excited to see this released for the Android. The app is simple to operate, and does a fairly decent job of emulating the visuals and sound of the 2600. I have tried perhaps a dozen ROMs (Asteroids, Pacman, Frogger, Berzerk, Donkey Kong, Missile Command, etc.) and they all run fine (though the sound is a bit off with a couple of them). I only have one complaint... these old games really cry out for a physical controller. Perhaps on an Android phone mapping the controls to phone buttons works well, but on my touchscreen tablet the controls are on-screen, touch-only. You really need the physical feel of a joystick or D-pad to make these games fun. Some of the games are still reasonably playable, but others just suck. YMMV....
