This looks like a bit of retro fun:

Get ready to stop working: Atari and Microsoft have released an 'arcade' of classic games for free.

Celebrating Atari's 40th birthday - and Microsoft's upcoming launch of Internet Explorer 10 - the collaboration sees eight games brought back to life with HTML 5.

The games are all playable on Atari's website - ad-free if you use Internet Explorer.

The games are:

Asteroids
Pong
Lunar Lander
Missile Command
Centipede
Combat
Yars' Revenge
Super Breakout

A few games that I remember there. :)

Lunar Lander didn't seem to work. Super Breakout sucks without paddles. Missile Command was nifty. Yars' Revenge needs paddles as well. Still, all pretty cool. Didn't try any others.

Pong was a little disappointing; the graphics weren't as smooth as I would have thought, and the ball had a tendency to fall in the gap between the edge of the field and the edge of the paddle at its farthest.

I really wanted to see Defender, that was the bomb back on my Atari 400!
