Denny's -- or as Denny's and no one else calls it, "America's Diner" -- has partnered with Atari to create...interesting versions of classic games Breakout, Centipede and Asteroids. The games are free, and available now in both iOS and Android app stores via the Denny's app. Whether you can stomach what they've become in the transition -- from classic games to a "retro, remixed promotion" for a trio of new dishes at a chain of diners -- is the question you'll have to ask yourself. Breakout becomes "Take-out"; Asteroids becomes "Hashteroids"; and Centipede becomes "Centipup." There's a trailer too that's only slightly soul-crushing.

We couldn't help but share these game descriptions as well, straight from whoever at Denny's was hired to write madness.

  • 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!
