FAQs and Troubleshooting:

  • The app crashes when I try to launch it on my Android device! If you are running Android OS 5 ("Lollipop") or later, there are changes to the operating system that are not compatible with many older apps. For this reason, a new version called Atari's Greatest Hits ReMaster has been published in the Google Play Store. You can migrate your purchases to this new version by following the steps here.
  • Can I buy it once and play on both my iPad and iPhone? Yes. You will be prompted to Restore Purchases on the second device, but you will only need to pay once.
  • I bought the games but they won't download! Atari's Greatest Hits downloads the content after purchase. This is done outside the App Store. We have heard reports of some firewalls (e.g. child-safe content filters) that will block access to the Atari content servers. To resolve this, either (a) check your firewall's logs and whitelist Atari's server or (b) attempt to download the content outside the firewall. If needed, you can reset the App by removing and reinstalling it. You will still be able to access your purchases.
  • Why is Pong broken? It's not. Atari's Greatest Hits includes a painstakingly accurate recreation of the original 1972 arcade rendition of Pong, including all its quirks. Among the authentic quirks we've reproduced is the inability for the paddles to reach the top and bottom corners. If you prefer, you can forego authenticity and get full coverage by changing the "Gap at Corners" option to "No" under the game's Settings.
  • The games are in a small window on my iPad! If you are still using iOS version 3.2 on your iPad, you may find the games do not fill the screen properly. This has been resolved in Version 1.1 or our App. Download the update from the App Store. A similar problem exists with the 1st generation iPhones, and has also been resolved in Version 1.1.

We're constantly working to make this App better. If you have a question or comment not addressed above, please feel free to send us feedback.
