Target plays similar to the game "Skeet", with the only difference that the dot never flies off the screen but keeps bouncing back from the edges.

Players move their tanks through a maze on screen, avoiding mines and shooting each other. The tanks are controlled by two joysticks in a dual configuration. Pushing both joysticks will move the player's tank forward, and pulling them both back causes the tank to stop. Moving the right joystick forward while pulling the left joystick back will cause the tank to turn right, while reversing the motion will cause the tank to turn left. The players are represented by one black and one white tank sprite, and mines are denoted by an "X". Points are scored by shooting the opponent or when a player runs over a mine; the player with the highest score at the end of the time limit wins the game.

Tank was also one of very few games to be ported onto 1st generation consoles, usually under the title "Tank Battle".

Shark Jaws is a 1 player arcade game by Atari Inc. originally released in 1975. Atari head Nolan Bushnell originally tried to license the Jaws name for the game, but was unable to secure a license from Universal Pictures. Deciding to go ahead with the game anyway, it was retitled Shark JAWS, with the word Shark in tiny print and JAWS in large all caps print to create greater prominence. Bushnell also created a second hidden subsidiary corporation, Horror Games - the previous being Kee Games, to help isolate Atari from possible lawsuit. The player controls a deep-sea diver trying to catch small fish while avoiding a great white shark that is trying to eat him. Points are scored by running over the fish to catch them.

Surround was an unofficial port of the arcade game Blockade, released the previous year by Gremlin. As such, it was the first home console version of the game that would become widely known on other platforms as Snake. As with other early Atari games, it was licensed to Sears, which released it under the name Chase. The cartridge was subdivided into 14 different games. The first 12 of these were variations on the Blockade theme. Like its predecessor Blockade and successor Snake, the object of Surround was to maneuver a sprite across the screen, leaving a trail behind. A player wins by forcing the other player to crash into one of the trails. Various options allowed for speed-up, diagonal movement, wrap-around and "erase" (the choice to not draw at a given moment); in addition, the sprites could be set to operate at a beginning "slow" speed, or progressively speed up through five speeds.

Video Olympics is a collection of games from Atari's popular arcade Pong series. The games are a collection of "bat and ball" style games, including several previously released by Atari as coin-ops in the early 1970s. The games are played using the 2600s paddle controllers, and are for one to four players (three or four players requires a second set of paddle controllers).

Knock a ball back and forth to keep it in play with mesmerizing colors and textures that shift and change as you play. Just touch or tap the screen to intuitively move the paddle. The game gets more challenging the longer you last, and levels you unlock expand the variety of colors and visual effects.

Circle's End is a small mobile arcade game which is easy to understand but hard to master.
Your task is to move the circle and make the ball hit every segment of it while holding the ball inside the screen. Every time a segment is hit it disappears and the ball gets reflected. The ball gets faster with every hit and so should you!
With each of the 15 levels the circle will be divided into more and smaller pieces.

Don‘t let the ball escape the screen, otherwise you´ll have to start all over again.
