French Fry Diary 596: Hashteroids

Denny's recently launched a very cool new campaign that harkens back to the good old days of home videogames. Why am I talking about here on French Fry Diary, you might ask, well, I'll tell you - it's all about the hash browns, or should I say, the Hashteroids.

In the "Greatest Hits Remixed" campaign, Denny's has partnered with Atari on their mobile app to create three new Denny's-centric games from three old classics. Centipede becomes Centipup, Breakout becomes Take-Out, and Asteroids becomes the breakfast potato-themed Hashteroids.

In Hashteroids, you fly a ketchup bottle shaped spaceship in the pursuit and destruction of asteroids shaped like and/or possibly made of hash browns. Actually they look more like spiky meteors made of fries, but it's cool, still potato. And yes, it looks like you're shooting ketchup at them.

The Denny's Atari Remix app is free on most devices. You can read the full story here.
