Atari Outlaw Arrives For iOS Devices, Dares You To Bring Out Inner Outlaw
When you are company with a pedigree like Atari, what would you do in a world where smartphones and casual gaming rule? Answer: You’d mine your backlog of games to come up with modern iterations that would fit perfectly on the small screens (bar the Galaxy Note) being carried in the pockets of millions around the world.
Atari has just re-introduced their retro Atari Outlaw franchise to smartphones, coming up with a brand new gallery shooter with the same name, but combining the Western themes of the original hit with colourful hand-drawn graphics, an expanded arsenal of weapons and smooth touch-screen controls.
From the Press Release: Developed by Flying Wisdom Studios, the Wild West shooter puts players in the boots of a well-armed bounty hunter, out to become the quickest draw in the West. By gunning down banditos, miners, and other yellow-bellied varmints, players will collect in-game silver and gold, which can be used to buy new weapons, upgrade their firearms, and restock on ammunition. Players can gun for the top spot on the leaderboards and prove to their friends just who among them is the toughest gunslinger in the saloon.
“Atari’s 40th Anniversary is the perfect time to release a fresh version of Atari Outlaw for mobile devices,” said Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari. “Like last month’s Super Bunny Breakout™, Atari Outlaw remains true to the skill-based arcade spirit of the original, fully updated to harness modern features and touchscreen capabilities.”
The game is available for FREE on the iTunes App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id553864821
