As promised last week, a new take on the classic Atari 2600 title Outlaw has arrived on the App Store today for iPhone and iPad. Atari’s re-imagining keeps the original’s Wild West theme, but applies it to touch-based shooting gallery gameplay.

Outlaw is a free game supported by in-app purchases for additional bullets — basically allowing you to play the game more — and power-up items. You can also purchase more powerful guns, including some high-tech weapons like a lightning bolt-shooting Tesla rifle.

It’s a fairly simple game, but it’s nevertheless worth a shot (sorry!) for the low, low price of free. You can check out its cartoon-style visuals in action below if you’re still on the fence.

Atari 2600 classic Outlaw reborn on iOS today originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Thu, 01 Nov 2012 19:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
