This just came out today, Denny’s, America’s iconic family diner, and Atari®, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of video game entertainment, have joined together to bring back a few classic arcade games, but with some unique twists. I remember back in the day when Atari was the only video game console. My cousins had one at their grandmother’s house and I was able to go to her house with them sometimes and play it. It was so fun.
This news pairs with Denny’s new “Greatest Hits Remixed” menu – which features a selection of the diner’s iconic dishes all with a new culinary spin – three of Atari’s most famous games, Asteroids®, Centipede® and Breakout®, have been remixed as “Hashteroids,” “Centipup” and “Take-Out.” Beyond just a new name, the games will feature diner elements, such as flying hash browns and syrup bottle shooters. All three games are available on the Denny’s mobile app for iPhone and Android devices.
Each of the new remixed games incorporates the diner items into play:
- Hashteroids – You’re aboard the SS Denny’s Condiment Transport ship and the mission is clear: deliver 40 tons of condiments to the 4th planet in sector 7d.
- Centipup – Once upon a time, a young boy named Danny came across a bottle of syrup and with just a slight squeeze the bottle’s sticky contents had the power to turn anyone or anything into a fried egg.
- Take-out – A wall made entirely of delicious Denny’s breakfast items appears blocking all the take-out orders from their rightful owners. The only way to feed customers is to break down that wall!
- The menu includes remixed dishes such as the Red White and Blue Slam, Baja Moons Over My Hammy and Tuscan Super Bird
