US restaurant chain Denny's release, umm, breakfast-themed Atari games


Ever wished videogames were more about breakfast? Then Denny’s might have you sorted. The company has – inexplicably – released a new app for iOS and Android that contains three classic Atari titles… with a twist.


Here’s how the three included games are described by the company:

Hashteroids [Asteroids] 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 [Centipede] 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 [Break 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!

Surprisingly, the implementations of the games are pretty good – and the good news is that despite the chain only existing on the other side of the pond, the app is also available over here too.

Perhaps this is some of the weird new stuff that Atari’s CEO was hinting at?
