Atari and Pariplay announced the launch of their Atari Asteroids instant-win game, the most recent release under the two companies’ ongoing strategic partnership.
Isle of Man.- The leading gaming technology company Pariplay Ltd. and Atari, leading interactive entertainment group, have announced the launch of their Atari Asteroids instant-win game. This is the most recent title created under the two companies’ ongoing strategic partnership. Atari Asteroids game has been developed by Pariplay’s in-house studio in HTML5 and provides players with an immersive experience, including first-person shooter functionality and HD graphics.
Back in 2014, Pariplay and Atari joined forces to develop a series of real-money gambling titles based on Atari video arcade classics. After the successful release of the Atari Black Widow online slot in Q1 2016, Atari Asteroids will be the first Atari-branded instant-win game Pariplay’s in-house studio has developed under the partnership.
“Our Atari-branded games are a key focus for our development studio, so we’re excited to bring to market a sophisticated, highly interactive instant-win title that’s based on such an iconic arcade game as Asteroids,” said Adrian Bailey, General Manager at Pariplay Ltd. “Atari Asteroids effectively balances the skill and entertainment focuses of the original arcade classic with the excitement of real-money iGaming, so it’s likely to become an important game in operators’ offerings in a range of markets.”
“Online gambling is an integral part of our strategy,” said Fred Chesnais, CEO of Atari, Inc. “Given Pariplay’s strong reputation in software development in the real-money iGaming space, we’re more than ever committed to this activity and we believe that, with the Atari brand and Atari games, we can definitely become a major player in the space.”
