Remember Atari 2600? it's one of the most famous game console in the past, now you can also transform your iPad into a cool looking Atari 2600 by using the Atari Arcade Dock. It seems that this accessories was perfect for those who want to nostalgia with their childhood game console.
The Atari Arcade peripheral, released by Discovery Bay Games, is available for purchase at most Apple Stores, The base requires no batteries, simply plug it into your iPad to power it up. You don’t have to worry about them becoming detached either, there are two secure clamps on either side which securely tighten the base to the iPad. Simply press a button and you can unlock your tablet.
The controls should work great for all the Atari game ports out there, since most of them only really used the joystick along with a button or two. You’ve got 4 buttons just to be safe though. The buttons are a bit smaller than the usual arcade buttons those of us growing up in the 80s and 90s are familiar with, but they at least feel like them and are responsive.
This addon is meant to be played with the Atari Greatest Hits app that you can purchase over iTunes, though before using it you will need to update them once you plug in the controller. The whole download should take only a few minutes though.
With this Atari Arcade now you can play most of the Atari 2600 Games on your iPad. You can see also the iControlpad which turns your iPad into a cool handheld console or even the Gametel for Android.
