Denny’s & Atari Cook Up Retro Games

Looks like someone at Denny’s is a fan of vintage video games. When I saw mention of Atari on a Denny’s placemat, it transported me back to the early days of video game /food partnerships. Seems like the McDonalds & Atari promotion was just the other day. Now, Denny’s has partnered with Atari to offer iOS and Android versions of some classic Atari games. Each game adds some food elements to the original concept. Instead of Breakout, there’s “Takeout” and instead of Asteroids we have “Hashteroids”. If you’re not a purist appalled by the modifications, then it’s a chance to get some pretty fun games for free. The graphics have been tweaked to add the diner elements, but the original sound effects are just the same. I’d say it’s a grand slam for both Denny’s and Atari.
