Denny’s Serves Up Diner-Themed Remixes of Three Atari Classics


I bet you didn’t see this cross-promotion coming.

Denny’s has partnered with Atari on a trio of classic game remixes inspired by the family diner chain’s new “Greatest Hits Remixed” menu. They are available for free on Android and iOS devices.

The three games take Atari hits and put a diner food theme on them. Asteroids is now “Hashteroids,” Centipede is now “Centipup,” and Breakout is now “Take-Out.” All of the original graphics have been replaced by pixelated eggs, bacon strips, pancakes, hash browns, and syrup and ketchup bottle spaceships.

Hashteroids is an action-packed arcade ketchup shooter where your goal is to destroy the clumps of golden-brown potatoes before they destroy you. Blasts of ketchup will break the hashteroids down, but it will take a bit of strategy and a whole lot of skill to survive. Make sure you also avoid other breakfast items like fried eggs and coffee killers!

Centipup is a fast-paced arcade survival game where you must use your magical bottle of syrup to fight off the hypnotized creatures of the Wonderfood Forest. Shoot blasts of sticky, syrupy goodness to transform enemies into eggs and defeat the evil Nannerpuss once and for all.

Take-Out is the brick-by-brick breakfast wall destruction arcade game you’ve been waiting for. Use an egg and your plate to destroy the wall of Denny’s food items. The more you clear, the more points you score!
