Atari announced today that six games from its neo-retro Atari Recharged series are now featured in the new Retro series, a category of games on Stadia that launches today. Those six games include Breakout, Black Widow, Gravitar, and Yars: Recharged, which launched today on the Stadia store. The Recharged games feature modern, reimagined versions of some of Atari’s most famous games.
All six Recharged games, including Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Yars, Black Widow, and Gravitar, are available on Stadia for $9.99 and include major updates to the original releases. Each game includes additional levels previously only available on the Atari VCS. Players now also have the option to choose three lives in arcade mode, which was the most requested request. And as a special treat for spider-weary players, Black Widow: Recharged now features an arachnophobia mode that turns the spider into a snowman that shoots snowflakes instead of webs.
Stadia has proven to be a fantastic partner for Atari and we’re thrilled to have our Recharged games coming to this platform with a new retro-inspired section
Atari CEO Wade Rosen said.
