[New Game] Denny's Atari Remix Is The Weirdest Discount Restaurant / Arcade Game Crossover You'll See Today

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.

[New Game] Conquest Of Elysium 3 Makes The Jump From Steam To Android, Keeps Its $10 Price Tag

Want to travel back to the golden age of fantasy strategy games? Well, maybe "golden age" is a bit dramatic, but the 90s brought all manner of well-crafted strategy games that focused on gameplay in place of graphics. Conquest of Elysium II was released in 1997, but the third incarnation came to Steam a while back with the same traditional vibe. Now it's on Android, but it won't come cheap.

[New Game] Cinemaware's Amiga Classic Defender Of The Crown Invades The Play Store

Defender of the Crown was an oddity when it debuted in 1986: a highly-polished game with impressive visual presentation (for the time), but one that didn't fit into any established genre. Civilization players of today might recognize a sort of proto-strategy in the slightly fantastic Medieval England setting, where you raise an army and conquer Britain in bits and pieces. But the actual gameplay requires real player interaction with the pre-rendered background, including various forms of fighting, jousting, and management.

[New Game] OrangePixel's Groundskeeper 2 Combines 2D Shooter Chaos And Roguelike Elements

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.

[New Game] Noir Syndrome Serves Up 8-Bit Detective Stories, Hardboiled And Procedurally Generated

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.

[New Game] Widget RPG Is A Tiny One-Button Role Playing Game That Hangs Out On Your Homescreen

Some of the more cynical game reviewers out there (looking at you, Croshaw) have described the standard RPG as a game where you ultimately push buttons to make the numbers go higher. As dismissive as that position is, we've found a game where it's literally true. Widget RPG is a full role-playing game, complete with non-player characters, equipment inventory, and a battle system. But the only way of interacting with the world around your character is by tapping on a homescreen widget like a maniac.

[New Game] Turn The Tables On A Tired Genre And Smash Some Endless Runners In Not So Fast

You may have noticed that we cover a lot of games here. That means that there are lots of developers who contact us hoping for some coverage... and some are more deserving than others. I literally cannot count how many half-hearted endless runners we've been shown, and it's only gotten worse since the rise and fall of Flappy Bird. So when someone shows us a game that turns the entire genre on its head and lets you play against those annoying running jerks, we stood up and took notice.
