"Atari's Greatest Hits" no longer works with iPadOS 14.5.1

Hello Code Mystics,


I love your "Atari's Greatest Hits" on iOS! However with the most recent iPadOS 14.5.1, it no longer works!

I get an error message saying that the app needs to be updated to work with iPadOS 14.5.1.

Are there any plans for Code Mystics to do this?


All the best,
Richard

That would be a question for Atari... Atari makes the plans. We merely execute them. :)

Seriously, Atari is both the owner and publisher. We have no authority over the app itself. So, it's up to them whether they wish to update or maintain the app and, if so, whether they wish to retain us to do so.

As it stands, the last time they asked us to update the app was in 2015, and at present it no longer appears in the App Store. So, sorry to say -- and admittedly we're only guessing as we have no inside information on this -- these things suggest that Atari is no longer supporting the product and so further updates are likely.

Like you, we're sorry to see it go, but we hope to have the opportunity to bring it back in some form. As it stands, if you happen to have a Nintendo Switch, Atari Flashback Classics is currently probably the best way to experience these games portably.
