Hey geeks, the gaming console of your early childhood is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. The Atari has been around that long so that means you are getting old. I’m not mocking you as I’m party of the same generation who was first mesmerized with the Atari joystick. Now, it’s considered retro that having the gaming gadget or at least the Atari games on your phone or emulator is cool. The Atari Pong games has reached 40 years.
To celebrate the past four decades, Atari is releasing a new version of Pong called Pong World. It’s the first iOS app ready for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. This one was part of the Pong Indie Developer Challenge. It’s a geeky search contest for the iOS developers to win the $50,000 grand prize.
