Plug-and-play game console features twenty arcade classics including Asteroids, Centipede, and Breakout
In 2004, Atari Flashback Classic Game Console was a new retro-style, stand-alone console unit configured with 20 classic Atari games including Asteroids, Centipede, and Breakout. The arcade console commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Atari 7800.
"Atari is synonymous with video games and the Atari Flashback faithfully brings back the sights, sounds and game play that started an entertainment revolution," said Wim Stocks, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Atari. "Retro gaming offers a unique blend of nostalgia for older fans and coolness for younger fans, making Atari Flashback this season's perfect holiday gift. The bottom line is classics never go out of style."
Resembling a modified replica of the Atari 7800 console, the Atari Flashback plugs directly into the TV via composite (RCA) cables, includes two joysticks and is the only retro-console to feature multiplayer gaming, with such notoriously challenging head-to-head games such as Asteroids, Centipede, Desert Falcon, and Sprintmaster.
In addition to featuring 20 classic games that defined a generation of players, Atari Flashback includes one exclusive from-the-vault classic, Atari's Saboteur.
The games found in Atari Flashback include:
- Crystal Castles
- Desert Falcon
- Haunted House
- Sky Diver
