Atari Anthology is a collection of over 80 Atari games released in 2003 as Atari - 80 Classic Games in One! for Microsoft Windows, and in 2004 for the Xbox and PlayStation 2. It reproduces both Atari arcade games and titles from the Atari 2600 game console. The Windows version features a slightly altered collection of Atari 2600 games, as noted below. The collection includes extras, such as original arcade artwork and scans of the instruction manuals for the Atari 2600 games, as well as video interviews with Nolan Bushnell, the co-founder of Atari. Many games permit one to play each title at varying speeds, with time limits, or with a shifting colour palette. Some of these modes must be unlocked by reaching predetermined goals in other games. The Windows version also has a few extras, such as desktop themes.

Cheat codes

Play Atari 2600 Tempest prototype

At the menu that appears after inserting the CD-ROM, select the "Bonus Material" option. After the Bonus Material screen appears, click on "Images" then press the arrow to scroll left twice. On the far right, there should be a box to the right of a picture of the Tiger Electronics version of Tempest. When the pointer is held over it, the text "There was an unproduced Atari 2600 version of Tempest. It never made it beyond a one-level prototype. " Click on this box to start the prototype Atari 2600 game that the aforementioned text describes, which is not listed on the box under "Atari 2600 titles" and is not in the main game selection screen.
