Fast Food is a game released for the Atari 2600.


You are a mouth who's hungry for food, and the object of the game is to eat as much food that flies across the screen as possible while avoiding the indigestible purple pickles, for eating too many of them will cause the game to end. There's no penalty for missing any food, but it will slow down your scoring. For higher points, go for the higher-caloried foods such as the French fries, pizzas, and cheeseburgers. Every so often you'll get a breather from the action as the message "You're getting fatter!" appears on the screen.


You earn calories for every bit of edible food that your mouth eats, as follows:

  • Green Pickle—1 calorie
  • Root Beer—3 calories
  • Cola—4 calories
  • Soda Pop—5 calories
  • Hot Dog—5 calories
  • Hamburger—6 calories
  • Ice Cream Bar—7 calories
  • Milk Shake—7 calories
  • Ice Cream Cone—9 calories
  • French Fries—10 calories
  • Pizza—10 calories
  • Cheeseburger—20 calories
