Microgame Mayhem Ensues in Atari Mania, Now Available on PC and Switch

Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — is elated to announce the release of Atari Mania, a past-meets-present romp through some of the company’s most beloved titles. Available today on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Atari VCS, Atari Mania sees players face off against the dreaded “dead pixels”, agents of chaos who aim to corrupt the beloved Atari titles of decades past.

Atari Mania is a fun, retro-fueled mashup of classic Atari titles that pays homage to the company’s role in video game history — timed perfectly for Atari’s 50th anniversary. Acting as the Caretaker of the Atari Vault, players must journey through corrupted, mixed-up versions of classic titles, beating microgames in order to restore order to the discord that’s been sewn. Along the way, players will come across familiar faces…but after the corruption, are they friend or foe? Overcome the challenging minigames, defeat the “dead pixels” in grueling boss battles, re-establish peace, and maybe even discover some easter eggs in this nostalgic-yet-new release!

I've been an avid gamer since I stumbled upon ZORK running in my local Radio Shack in 1980. Ten years later I was working for Sierra Online. Since then I've owned nearly every game system and most of the games to go with them. Not sure if 40+ years of gaming qualifies me to write reviews, but I do it anyway.
