    Play old-school Atari games in any HTML5 Web browser

    Ever get a hankering for some old-school Atari? Now you can play eight classic video games in any HTML5 Web browser, even on touch-screen smartphones and tablets.

    Zap! Atari and Microsoft today launched Atari Arcade, an excellent example of how HTML5 can change the way we play video games.

    The portal of retro entertainment -- primarily launched to celebrate Atari's 40th anniversary -- includes Asteroids, Centipede, Combat, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, and Yars' Revenge. The best part? It's free, and doesn't require Flash, Java, or any other plug-in to play, running solely on HTML5.

    I've just found this independently and was looking to see if there was a thread about it - and this is it.

    Excellent retro browser-based action!
