I gotta say, this is my absolute favorite game I’ve ever downloaded on the App Store. It’s super fun and addictive. I appreciate all the details they put into every country and the different ways to cook the foods and the ability to earn boosts / spoons in a way that I think is fair. Other games I’ve played pretty much force a player to pay but I’ve never really felt that with this game. You just have to be patient and keep plugging away at the levels or the weekly challenges to earn those extra boosts. Personally I’ve never had too many issues with it, sometimes it does freeze but very rarely for me and it’s usually if I lost a level. It does glitch out on occasion where if I use a boost and then lose, the next time I try that level or any other level I’ve lost, my boost will reactivate. Sooo I guess I’m not really complaining about that glitch as much lol. I will say that the levels where you have to make a certain amount of money can be a little annoying / frustrating but I usually wait until I either have infinite lives so I can keep trying to beat that level or play extra shifts to earn enough money to upgrade my stuff so that I can earn more money. I think the thing I appreciate the most about this game are the weekly challenges, they are so fun and keep the game interesting for me, especially since I’m still only in Rome at the moment. So thank you to the creators for making such a fun game and continually adding updates!
I’ll start by saying this is a good game overall. I’m impressed with the responsiveness, graphics, and overall fun it has been to play this game. I also enjoy the ability to earn spoons as you progress on new levels. Again I enjoy playing and the game is one of my most played when I need to unwind. My issue is with the difficulty as you progress to the higher levels. I understand a certain amount of challenge in the group of 40 for each restaurant, but when I can’t complete a level because the game doesn’t factor enough people within the time limit or I don’t make enough money as the goal because customers only ask for one item for all 4 on the screen, this is when I have to say enough is enough. In the levels for Athens and beyond, I see this more and more (Mexico City, Tokyo, Shanghai, Moscow). I can only progress when I use my boosts that I’ve been trying to save for later cities, but I have to use 2-3 at a time to make it through then the next level is the exact same goal with 5 seconds less than you had previously. Please fix this. I really do enjoy playing this game, but it might just end up being another app that I get frustrated with and delete because it’s too difficult. Thanks for reading this and I hope to see a fix in an update soon.
Adding to my review!! So I’m in Paris level 21... there is no way of passing this level without putting money it to it only because they don’t give you enough costumers which is a bad big turn off for me!! That right there might just make me stop playing the game!! It’s unfair and upsetting!!! I too love this game, it’s a lot of fun and the challenge is great but unfortunately very unfair. I started reading everyone’s reviews and I have to agree with every single review!! I do have one other thing that’s annoying that I didn’t see much complaining about. When I lose instead of going back to map it gets stuck, not frozen because I’m still able to cook, but it won’t bring me back to the map so I have to get off the game close it out completely and then start again, it’s happened to be a couple of times but last night it happen when I was playing a bonus round I made about 1,000 bucks but since it got stuck and I had to get off I lost the money I made. It’s it upsetting. I did write to them I’m not sure if they will get back to me hopefully they will. It’s sad because I really do like to play but if they don’t take what everyone is saying into consideration then I’m going to have to stop playing as well. It’s not worth getting frustrated!! I could just go play one of the other millions of game out there. So please I hope you guys look at we are all writing and do the right thing!! Thank you!!
So I love this game, the design is fun and its overall a great game, but I have some big issues with it that WILL stop me from playing. My 1st issue is that when you travel to a new country, none of your money is taken with you, which makes the money you made previously unimportant, especially if you got all the upgrades. For example, when I left New York to go to Paris, I had over 80k coins, and now in Paris I have to start fresh. Normally I wouldnt mind, but the paris levels are incredibly unforgiving and without much pay off. By level 10 you need already a lot of upgrades so you constantly have to replay the same mundane levels. So, it would be nice if there was some form of currency conversion. Like I could use my 80k to get, say 20k of the paris coins. Something like that. Now, my next point, and possibly my biggest issue with the game isn’t difficultly but rather, impossibility. In many of the Paris levels (and some of the NY levels), when your goal is to get “likes” they dont give you enough customers to achieve that goal. Say you need 12 likes, they will only give you 11 customers so you HAVE to use a power boost of +3 customers which is ridiculous. This isnt a matter of, “oh I didnt perform fast enough” because it often isnt timed and you just dont get enough customers. Its a ridiculous money scam, and poor game development that needs to be fixed.
I really like this game. I would say that it’s one of my favorites because it is the great mixture of challenging and quick paced. I have a few issues and that’s what caused me to knock off two stars for what should be a five star review. As I said, it’s fun and I could play for hours and I have before. But my problem is 1) when going to a new world, you lose all your coins from the previous world. Because it’s also supposed to be harder levels it’s harder to upgrade and advance to new levels. That for me isn’t too big of a deal but it’s definitely not my favorite thing. I’m not saying I should keep all my coins but I shouldn’t have to leave them all behind, especially since I had about 90k when I left NY. 2) But my biggest issue is that I’m stuck on this level and I’ve upgraded all the things available to me to the highest level possible and I’m losing the level by 40 or 50 coins. I might be able to win if I had a boost but I don’t have enough spoons to buy one. If you’re going to have a level, make it possible for someone to win without any boosts, especially if that person upgraded everything in the “restaurant” to the highest level. EDIT: I got past the level I had trouble with but now I’m having trouble 2 different levels in Paris. I can’t seem to get enough customers in the 60 seconds. Like I’m 5 away from winning the level. I’ve used free boosts given to me like insta cook do it’s not me. It’s the game. The game won’t let me win the game. I’ve given up.
