Free Atari Emulators

Atari ST, 800, 800XL, 130XE, 5200 (etc) Emulation


Free Atari Emulators

Are you feeling nostalgic, yearning for a taste of the good old days when you played games or learned to write your first program on an Atari computer? The free Atari emulators listed on this page allow you to revisit those days using your modern computer, be it a PC, Mac or some other machine.

The emulators listed here typically emulate the Atari ST, 800, 800xl, 130XE and 5200 machines. They usually provide emulation for a variety of Atari hardware, including joysticks, track ball, paddles, touch tablet, light pen, light gun, cassette recorder, floppy and hard disks. You will probably also need Atari ROMs (which may or may not be provided) for the machines to use the emulator. If you are able to locate standard disk images for old Atari software, like games, these emulators will also be able to load them as though the images were normal disks in the floppy drive or cassette tapes in the recorder.
