Classic American diners and 70s-era video games go hand in hand. No, wait a minute. That's an insane statement. Those things don't have anything to do with one another... until now. Denny's, the after-hours haunt of college students and cross-country travelers all over the United States, has launched a special version of three Atari video games. The app icon has Denny's bacon strips in place of the iconic stripes in Atari's logo.

The titular beach bum in Beach God doesn't have a name, but he looks like a Chad. I'm going to call him Chad. Chad is hoping to impress the voluptuous ladies strolling past his tiki bar, using the time-honored technique of flexing his biceps and pectorals. His motivation might not be entirely lust-driven, because if just one of the ladies passes him when he's not flexing, he literally dies of embarrassment.

With a name like "Disco Zoo," you can probably tell that Tiny Tower developer NimbleBit isn't taking its latest game entirely seriously. And indeed, this really isn't a Zoo Tycoon-style game, and it isn't trying to be. In Disco Zoo, you "rescue" animals under questionable circumstances, then display them in marginally unsafe conditions to farm money out of gawking patrons. And then you throw a disco party.

Disco Zoo is a mix of Kairosoft-style pixelated property management (slightly modified to fit the free-to-play model), and, strangely, minesweeper.

OrangePixel's original Groundskeeper was more of an experiment than a full game, an endless survivor-shooter in the company's typical old-school 2D style. The sequel retains the look and feel, but everything has been expanded: there's now a full story behind the tiny compartmentalized levels, you have access to a staggering amount of weapons, and the graphics and on-screen action have been given a considerable boost.

The game features the developer's usual calling cards: retro basics dialed up to 11.

They call me Pete Ingalls. They should - it's my name, and it's the one tastefully set on the frosted glass on my office door, right over the words "Privte Investgatr." (I keep meaning to get those letters replaced.) What I lack in funds and polygons I make up for in grit. I'm the one you come to when the cops aren't interested. When people walk through that door, it's because they've knocked on every other one in town.

You know that feeling you get every once in a while, when you suddenly have this undeniable urge to punch a bear in the face? Tim does, and when his family is kidnapped by a secret conspiracy of ursine overlords, he's got the perfect excuse to indulge. The pixelated, flannel-wearing hero of Fist of Awesome is out to punch everything that moves and kick everything that doesn't.

Fist of Awesome started out as a Kickstarter project to fund an old-school, Streets of Rage-style beat-em-up, and is now somewhat belatedly available on Android.
