Atari Recharged Series


Recommended Posts

I'm a huge fan of Atari's new "Recharged" series of games. Following onto last year's Missile Command: Recharged, which was released on mobile, Steam, Switch and VCS, the more recent entries expand the concept for consoles and include an Arcade Mode, Challenges Mode, achievements and co-op. Games so far are single life, high-score chasing affairs and pretty difficult.

Each of the of the games feature power-ups, updated graphics and music by composer Megan McDuffee. Despite the upgrades, the core game play is largely intact.

The first games are out now and available everywhere, appearing on VCS, Switch, XBOX One/S/X, PS4/5, Steam and Epic.  This includes Centipede, Black Widow and Asteroids. Breakout Recharged is due out in Q1.

For VCS owners, there are 10 exclusive bonus challenges and alternate controller options. 

Have you played any games in the Recharged series? If so, what are your thoughts on the games so far?

One of the things I've really liked about the Recharged series is the key art for each game.  ATARI just revealed the art for Breakout.

It's cool that it's a throw back to the original jailbreak theme.  I can't help but think of Don Knotts in that ridiculous commercial.

I'd love to see a poster set from this series!
