Atari Mania Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET I’ve been a huge fan of Atari almost my entire life, especially their classic arcade games. Although there have been oodles of compilations released over the years, I don’t think there has ever been a crossover game that blends their classics together. Thankfully, Atari Mania is here to do just that. If you’ve ever played any WarioWare game then you’ll immediately be familiar with the formula presented here as you’re basically tasked with completing a succession of bite-sized microgames with a limited number of lives in the hopes of completing the final one. In between these segments, you’ll wander around a museum as a caretaker while utilizing inventory items in order to solve simple puzzles and this adventure-style structure acts as a perfect counterbalance to the frantic microgames; it’s a lot of fun! Considering Crystal Castles is one of my favourite Atari games, it delighted me to see that Bentley is the antagonist of Atari Mania. You see; he’s tired of starring in his game while going through the same motions for 40 years so he decides to harness the power of dead pixels in order to claim freedom.

It’s such a silly premise for a game and the fact that you play as a caretaker of the Atari Vault is clever, especially because you’ll meet many familiar Atari characters along the way; some of which are fresh takes on the classics such as Milli the Millipede. There are so many references and silly jokes that it was hard not to smile throughout every story sequence. The collection of microgames in Atari Mania is full of variety and not only do you play through modern takes of retro games; you’ll also enjoy many that blend elements of multiple games. For example, you’ll shoot arrows while playing Pong, use a tank in a dungeon, and deflect balls while playing Centipede. Many of these mixtures are so unique that they feel like fresh experiences despite being based on classic games. Of course, you’ll only play each one for a matter of seconds but they’re still quite fun for the most part with some being more challenging than others. Meanwhile, you’ll have to tackle more difficult boss stages that mostly involve figuring out how to master them which may require some repetition but once you move on and unlock the ability to re-play that section, it feels awesome.

As I mentioned, you’ll play as the Caretaker in between microgame sessions and you’ll do so in a Zelda-like structure where you explore a room-based hub area that’s filled with puzzles. As you do so, you’ll collect usable items such as a magnet that can attract metal objects, a hammer to smash pegs, and a grappling hook that latches onto walls to move them out of the way. There’s also a broom that you can use to collect 50 piles of dust. What will happen when you get all of it?  Anyway, there are also 25 game manuals and 25 pieces of cover art to collect via solving puzzles, exploring, and playing optional microgame collections. However, collecting everything won’t take all that long so I wish there were many more pieces of Atari memorabilia scattered around such as playable classic games, etc. No matter how advanced the video Game industry becomes, every single gamer out there should know that it all began with Atari. They were the creators and innovators of coin operated and home Video Games, and just about everything we play today began with the simple games from the era of Atari. Now, 50 years since their creation. Sifu Switch XCI

Atari is still with us, bringing back their classics and creating new challenges with Atari Mania, a combination of new and classic elements guaranteed to bring the fun! Atari Mania is a retro microgame collection very similar to the WarioWare titles. You play as a caretaker of the actual Atari Vault, a museum of classic Atari games and Characters. Think of it as a “Night at the Museum” situation, except not only are the characters alive all the time, but the vault is their home. One night, a dead pixel appears and begins to grow, pulling the Atari Characters into the void it is slowly creating. In order to combat the dead pixels, you have to enter the voids and play a series of Atari themed mini games and then face the Dead Pixel in a one on one battle. In order to get access to the many rooms in the vault where the dead pixels are wreaking havoc, you’ll have to collect tools, and solve simple puzzles scatted in most of the rooms. Completing these puzzles will not only open new sections, but you can collect the many Atari themed Collectables like Posters, Atari Box Art, Instruction manuals and some great artwork. The mini games you discover all have very simple concepts but that doesn’t mean that they will all be a cakewalk.

Go face to antennae with some of the greatest games and characters in videogame history.

Some are very straight forward like “shoot the Millipede before it reaches the Bottom” or “Score a point In Pong”, while others will have you reaching a checkpoint in a short amount of time or protecting a character from laser fire as he runs to the goal. If you fail a challenge, you lose a “Life” and move on to the next challenge. Running out of lives resets your progress and you have to begin again. Do you have a fondness for quirky PlayStation 2-era B-grade games? If your answer is no, then you’re all done here. You’re not going to like this remake of the 2006 PlayStation 2 game any more than you would have liked the original. This game was made by Acquire, a developer best known for creating the Tenchu and Way of the Samurai series. Kamiwaza leans a lot more towards the latter than the former, despite it centering stealth mechanics in its gameplay. You play as a former thief who returns to a life of crime in order to help his sick daughter, and that means you’re going to do a lot of looting. It has janky, complicated controls. The camera is a pain in the neck. It’s not always clear what you should do or where you should go. Paper Beast

The enemy AI is really stupid. The visuals may have been updated but it’s not hard to ascertain what generation it comes from. This game is PlayStation 2 as hell. That’s just the kind of mood I am in, however, so it works well for me. Naturally, by modern standards, this game is really awkward. Stealth games have come a long way over the past few generations. Heck, they had come a long way even before this came out. It wasn’t localized back in the day but I can almost smell the middling reviews if it had. In its favor, Kamiwaza is incredibly novel, and I guess sixteen years is about long enough for me to have a bit of nostalgia for its vibe. See an enemy guard in your way? Put down your sack full of loot and soccer kick it at his melon to knock him on his butt. Everyone’s turned around? As long as you’re sneaking you can pretty much graze their butts without anyone noticing. Ideally you want to avoid fights, but if you get into one you can pick your opponent’s pockets while you beat them down. You’re pretty much trying to steal everything that isn’t nailed down, and anything that is nailed down can usually be coaxed from its moorings with enough time.

A charming neo-retro art update to the classic Atari 2600 style.

All of it goes into your sack, which slowly increases in size as you fill it up with comically large objects. Don’t take my score to mean this is an average game. It most decidedly is not. It’s very niche in both its gameplay and appeal, and I think you’ll have to be just the right person in just the right mood to enjoy it the way I did. There are probably more rough edges than smooth edges here, but if you’re looking for a stealth game that does things very differently from the norm, this will certainly fit your needs. It even has a decent story attached. I’m glad this remake exists and I’m glad NISA localized it, even if I think it is going to struggle to find an audience even more than its stablemate Way of the Samurai. I’ve been greatly enjoying Atari’s mini renaissance of late, and as such I was looking forward to Atari Mania. Part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebrations, the game presents a bunch of WarioWare-style microgames inspired by Atari’s famous classics. The basic idea here is that you’re a caretaker working at Atari’s headquarters, reporting in for another day at work. Some dead pixels have appeared in the building and are sucking in the various Atari characters. It’s up to you to help them out and get to the bottom of who and what is behind all of this.

There are two components to this game. One is a loose adventure game of sorts. You wander around the building and use items to solve puzzles that will uncover secret collectibles or open the path forward. You can unlock cover art and manuals for a number of Atari games, and it’s pretty fun. I wish you could also unlock the original games, but I suppose we have a remedy for that coming in a few weeks. You’ll meet various Atari characters as you explore, and it’s fun to see some characters who had very little characterization by necessity get infused with personalities. The other part of the game, and probably the intended main course, is in playing the microgames. You’re tasked with completing a certain number of them in a row without failing too many, which is similar to the structure in a WarioWare game. Some of these sequences are mandatory, while others serve as extra challenges for unlockables. As mentioned, all of these microgames are inspired by Atari classics. Most of them go as far as to mash up multiple games at once, with Pong paddles battling Millipede or the Asteroids ship navigating a corridor of Super Breakout blocks. It’s a cute idea, especially for those who know these games well.

At the best of times, these microgames can be just as clever as the ones seen in WarioWare. Sometimes, they’re just confusing, overly complicated, too lengthy, or don’t control the way you would expect. Broadly speaking, Atari Mania hits more than it misses with its microgames. There are moments of frustration when you get a bunch of microgames you can’t figure out and end up having to start the whole chain over again, but such is how this sort of thing goes. After completing a set of microgames and toppling the boss stage, you can play them again at your leisure on an arcade machine that will pop up. It’s a good game, particularly for fans of Atari. Unfortunately, this Switch port has a few issues that might make you want to check out the game on another console. Response can be sluggish at times, with noticeable lag in the controls. Loading times are just long enough to be uncomfortable, and sometimes it doesn’t let you know it’s loading and makes it feel like the game is hanging. I’m not sure if this is something that could be fixed in an update or not, but I hope we see some kind of improvements here if only to make transitions less awkward. Pokemon Scarlet Switch XCI
