Atari 2600 fans, sit down and take a deep breath, because your prayers have been answered! Following up on their "reimagining" of the classic Pitfall!, Activision has gone ahead and released a free iOS app which includes all 45 of the original games.
Activision Publishing, Inc. has released Activision Anthology, a free universal iOS app which brings all 45 of the company's classic Atari 2600 games to the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad at last.
And yes, that includes the original Pitfall!, which was recently released in a shiny new Temple Run-style version -- but if you were jonesing for the real thing, you'll get that and a whole lot more here.
While Activision Anthology is a free app, it only includes the classic KABOOM! -- to get the rest of the catalog, you'll have to pony up for some in-app purchases, available as a set of 11 titles for $2.99 or you can procure the remaining 44 games for a mere $6.99 in one fell swoop.
Between this app and the existing Atari's Greatest Hits, we're seriously reliving our youth over here, folks! Activision Anthology is available now from the App Store and requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.
Now excuse us as we bail out on work for the rest of the day…
