Do you play games on your phone? Or your tablet? Do you while away your bus journey playing a few rounds of Candy Crush or do you like more interactive games? I go through phases you know, one day it’s all about matching the symbols climbing the levels, the next it’s all about the characters and building a new world. I seriously have far too much time on my hands don’t I!
Anyway when I was asked if I wanted to review a fun family friendly mobile app game, I though yeah why not. So for the past few days I have been
addicted playing Cooking Fever. The idea isn’t anything new I have played these types of games before however, it doesn’t mean it is a bad game far from from it! How exactly do you play it?
Have a read of the game description below,
More than 400 dishes to cook using 100 ingredients * 15 unique locations: Bakery, Fast-Food Court, Chinese, Pizzeria, Seafood Bistro, Indian Diner, Breakfast Café, Sushi, Chinese, Ice Cream Bar, Paradise Cocktail Bar, Corn Dog Van, Café Mexicana, House of Crab and FC Barcelona Sports Bar. More locations are on the way! * More than 500 levels to complete * Hundreds of upgrades for your kitchen appliances and interiors * Lots of spontaneous Challenges for different levels.
You start off making fast food for your customers, burgers and drinks, and start earning money and tips to be able to work your way up through the levels, there are 15 locations too. The aim is not to burn any food and serve your customers before they leave. There are many different options to earn extra coins and gems by completing challenges eg make 30 drinks. These then enable you to be able to upgrade your restaurant and equipment meaning you can serve more customers quicker and earn more money. Simple. Simple but effective right. You are also awarded more coins and gems upon each successful level completion. As you work your way up through the levels this opens up a whole new host of different products and new businesses to buy including FC Barcelona Sports Bar. But obviously this requires coins and gems and lots of them. Different places open at different levels, reuiring your gems and/or coins to make a purchaseNow as well as being able to earn them, you can actually buy them if you are so inclined, with prices ranging from 79p to more for larger packs. I have to say I have been down this route before buying the odd pack of coins etc to further my game but this just serves to accelerate your game and whizz you through. Playing without purchasing is still fun and doable you just need to have patience and hone your skills. I have been popping back to previous completed (easier) levels to be able to make some more cash so to speak to aid with upgrading for harder levels. Level one requires you to make a lot less money than say level 10 and is easier to get through. This gives you a better chance of being able to make some more to upgrade for higher levels where you need to be quicker. Upgrades are essential to progress through the levels and I found myself struggling to complete them without losing any customers once I got past 7. So my top tip would be to keep popping back down to lower levels to earn as much as possible to keep going. My Thoughts? Seriously seriously addictive, so addictive I haven’t even let Olivia have a go so she doesn’t ruin my score! The girl will have to download her own lol. So far I haven’t come across any bugs or glitches whilst playing which is good. I hate getting so far into a game and it’s like it hasn’t been finished by the developers. I have been playing on my Samsung s4 and game play is really smooth and easy. There is nothing complicated and I picked it up in a matter of minutes. There are also helpful tips popping up every time you reach a new level or unlock a new item, like lettuce and tomatoes on your burgers ahhhh I’m just not quick enough for this. I would like to of had the option to buy an assistant for example, whilst your are flipping your burgers you have a character on drinks or vice versa. Maybe there is on higher levels and I’ve just not reached them yet? With regards to earning extra coins/gems. I thought it would be quite hard. Initially I thought maybe they could have been more generous? However I found I managed to earn them quite easily so no problems for me there. As I mentioned above, if you are struggling just go back to the beginning whilst you earn more. I give this game 4.5/5 A really good, yet addictive family (mine) game which will keep me busy and probably awake at night, a lot!
