The Atari TV Games was a plug and play gaming unit that was manufactured by Jakks Pacific. It contains Centipede, Breakout, Gravitar, Yars' Revenge, Pong, Missile Command, Adventure, Circus Atari, and Real Sports Volleyball as its built-in games. Unlike the later-produced Atari Flashback 2, the Atari TV Games does NOT play actual Atari 2600 games on a system emulator chip, but rather recreations of those games. The system unit is modeled after the original Atari 2600 Joystick controller.
