Destineer's MacSoft unit is shipping Atari Arcade Classics, a collection of bought-up-to-date 3D versions of Breakout, Centipede and Pong for Mac OS X.

Breakout features the story of Bouncer's rescue of his girlfriend Daisy from the evil Batnix, using a paddle to battle through ancient Egypt, historic castles, distant space and even chicken coops.

MacSoft general manager Al Schilling said: "Each game in Atari Arcade Classics gives you a nostalgic game redone in a whole new way. This collection makes for great family fun and we're delighted to make it available in time for the holidays."

Atari Arcade Classics costs $19.99 (UK price not yet announced). Centipede and Breakout require Mac OS X 10.1.5 or higher, a 400MHz or faster processor, 256MB RAM, 16MB video card, and a CD-ROM drive. Pong requires OS X 10.2.8.
