Midway Presents Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1 is a compilation of various classic arcade games created by Atari, Inc. It was brought to the Sega Saturn by Digital Eclipse and Midway Games.

Games included

  • Asteroids
  • Battlezone
  • Centipede
  • Missile Command
  • Super Breakout
  • Tempest

The game has analog controls in Centipede, Missile Command, and Super Breakout when played with a Mission Stick. This analog mode will not work on the 3D Control Pad.

History

Even though this compilation was produced by Midway, who owned Atari Games at this point, the games were licensed from Atari Corporation which retained ownership of Atari, Inc.'s games after it had split into two companies in 1984. This was one of the few times the two Ataris associated with each other.
