Play Atari Classic Games Free Online

 
Atari Arcade: is the official place to play beloved Atari classics online, any time and free of charge.
Adventure – Few games can be said to have created a genre. But Atari’s Adventure is rightfully considered by many to be the first ever action-adventure game. It was also the first ever to allow a player to have a stash of items, requiring the player to select which one to use at any given moment. Your mission: find the enchanted chalice and return it to the gold castle.
 
AsteroidsNo history of the Golden Age of Arcade Games is complete without praising Asteroids, a game so popular that video arcade owners were sometimes forced to install larger boxes to hold the amount of quarters that were spent by players.
 
BattlezoneA forefather of today’s 3D action games, Battlezone was introduced in 1980. It was so advanced at the time that the U.S. Army ordered modified versions of the games for training purposes.
 
Crystal CastlesNoteworthy for being one of the first arcade games with an actual ending, in Crystal Castles the player controls Bentley Bear, who collects gems located throughout castles while avoiding enemies out to get him as well as the gems.
 
Lunar LanderOften duplicated, never equaled. The objective of Lunar Lander is to pilot a lunar landing module as it prepares to touch down on the moon. With gravity, a finite fuel supply and the craft’s handling characteristics to contend with, find one of the flat areas for a safe landing.
 
Yars’ Revenge – Atari’s best selling original title for the 2600, you are a Yar: an insectoid creature who must nibble or shoot through a barrier in order to fire his "Zorlon Cannon" into the breach and destroy the evil Qotile.
