The latest in Atari's Recharged series, which includes the likes of Centipede, Asteroids, and Breakout, Yars: Recharged is once again developed by Adamvision Studios and SneakyBox, and adds in elements of arcade, shoot-em up, and bullet hell into the classic game's formula.

  • Hey Matt, that link in the second paragraph goes to an error screen.
  • I grew up with a hand-me-down 2600, and Yars was one of their games for me. These retro updates (Pac-Man CE, Space Invaders) are like catnip to me, so I am super excited.
