PC Atari brings back good old memories for those who experienced their first gaming adventures in the 1970s and the 1980s. The software emulates the Atari 2600 Video Computer System – a milestone in the video game history. The emulator was created to bridge a gap between history, nostalgia and modern technologies. It was designed to run on Microsoft Windows machines only. PC Atari 2.6 is the latest version released – meanwhile, the project has been abandoned.
There are more aspects that make PC Atari a front runner and the super-fast emulation of most applications is one of them. You have full collision checking, support for cartridge bank switching schemes and the capability to emulate a couple of joysticks, four paddles and multiple Atari accessories. PC Atari also has a unique and intuitive menu for a wide variety of games, as well as an interactive debugger and excellent sound emulation.
