Responding to requests on the fly is an interesting concept, and one that is fleshed out very well in Cook, Serve, Delicious. It's fun, and yet also quite tense - a mere second could spell the difference between serving an order and just missing it, and as you progress through the game this happens more and more often as you encounter more and more complex foods to prepare - in fact, that's my sole criticism. Some of the foods are just a little TOO complex, sometimes detracting from the experience a bit. Aside from that though, Cook, Serve, Delicious is a "delicious" little strategy-slash-management simulator which will keep you entertained for a long time. Expand

    Cook, Serve, Delicious is a restauarnt management game where you have to set up you restaurant and prepare a whole bunch of meals for yourCook, Serve, Delicious is a restauarnt management game where you have to set up you restaurant and prepare a whole bunch of meals for your customers. The art style of this game drew me in, but it was the game play that hooked me and kept me playing for a very long time.

    Most dishes are somewhat simple to prepare. Click a few buttons, try to replicate what the customer asked for, let it cook, and send it. The difficulty is in perfecting the dish so that you can serve it many times over the course of the day, and do it quickly and correctly. Choose your menu items carefully, because some dishes might really trip you up when you're presse for time. The farther you get through the game, the harder it gets, and New Game+ mode is pure insanity. Insanely tough and insanely fun.

    There's really not much to complain about with this game. The controls are pretty solid (I recommend a game controller), the music is very nice, and the art is stylish and pleasant. This game is surprisingly well polished for an indie game.

    Cook, Serve, Delicious is absolutely worth buying, and I could recommend it to just about anybody. It's honestly among the best games I've played in recent years.

    This game is great! You start out at a 0 star restaurant and have to slowly work your way up to a 5 star restaurant by purchasing upgradingThis game is great! You start out at a 0 star restaurant and have to slowly work your way up to a 5 star restaurant by purchasing upgrading foods, and serving customers day by day. It sounds simple and boring, but it's really fun and charming.

    Food is prepared and served by hitting the right key combination so that you get the requested ingredients right. Most foods you purchase will have several different ways of preparing them, and as you upgrade your foods, it adds even more recipes, while allowing you to charge more.

    In order to increase the star rating of your restaurant, you must meet a different list of requirements each time. These sometimes include some of the "side missions" such as catering, cooking shows, etc.

    It is difficult to explain but the structure of the game feels right. The art style is really great, the music is great... everything just fits together to make you want to keep playing. Not the most complex game ever, but totally worth its price.

Especially the wine, because I have to tab, and my arm hurts after 1 single in-game day. Nevertheless, the 'Rush hours' are very funny. Just doing stuff ridiculously quickly. I really enjoy the game!

Simplistic interface, very grindy, and lots of impatient people. Just like real life! I looked forward to the next "food upgrade" while my cash and buzz drop to nothing as I am the only employee doing everything from cleaning the toilets only to rush back and make a pizza. It reminds me of Lucille Ball runs a restaurant. It can get really funny. Expand

    If you've ever wanted the thrill of running a restaurant, well this is a game so you're not going to get any thrills like that. However ifIf you've ever wanted the thrill of running a restaurant, well this is a game so you're not going to get any thrills like that. However if you've ever wanted the thrill of pretending you run a restarant with tasks done in the form of minigames, then there are lots of thrills to be had here.

    First off, you start out with 4 menu slots and enough cash to buy some stuff. You can buy a grill, a fryer, an industrial stove for making soups and stuff, etc. You also get to pick food ranging from simple to complicated, and quick to "needs lots of prep time". Food can also be upgraded to allow you more options and more money.

    A typical day goes like this: you choose your menu items, you start the day and people stop in and give you orders. It could be "I need a large water with flavor blast and no ice" or "one corn dog with nothing on it" or maybe even "3 meat patties, cheese bacon and tomato" or whatever. As long as you don't make any mistakes and don't take too long, the customer is happy and you get some extra "buzz" from it. Make a few mistakes and the customer walks away unsatisfied but otherwise ok (no buzz). REALLY screw things up and he gets mad and you lose buzz.

    Oh and while you're doing all of this, there's dishes to be done, there's trash to throw out, rat traps to reset, toilets to flush, and the occasional blog post that needs thumbing up because it could raise your buzz.

    The game is relatively simple, but yet it's just challenging enough to make you feel like you accomplished something when you go a full day with no bad orders, or if you made a really good streak of perfect orders. It takes some practice to get used to it, and sometimes adding a new item to the menu can throw you off your game, but you really have to keep changing up the menu to keep it fresh and interesting (both for you and for the customers in game).

    The game is very charming with jazzy music that plays at various times of the day, for various weather conditions, and during rush hour (among other events). The art style is kinda like a childrens book, but it doesn't detract from the game and maybe adds a little flavor to it (since the customers you get depend on how good your restaurant is).

    If you dislike minigames or QTE style games, you should probably pass on CSD, but if you like trying to multitask and you don't mind the physical challenge of having to hit certain keys (sometimes in a certain order) then this is worth a look. I've enjoyed CSD... maybe you will too?
