Review: cooking fever game online
Review: cooking fever game online. The basic theme and game play mechanics are a familiar mixture because there is only so much you can do in terms of unique mechanics for a food stand game. In Cooking Fever the focus begins with your basic burger counter – you’ve got a single pan and burner to cook on, and a single rather slow soda fountain from which to serve drinks…
WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW
Parents need to know that Cooking Fever is your basic, Diner Dash-style food-assembling time-management game. Customers get visibly annoyed when you take too long, but that’s about the worst of it. Parents should be aware that there are many opportunities for in-app purchases to speed things up, and gameplay gets pretty challenging as customers make demands, so some kids may get frustrated. Some also might be concerned about the food itself: You have to serve lots of burgers, hot dogs, fries, and sodas when the game begins.
It was down to one hour for a challenge and I needed diamonds to upgrade. I spent my entire weekend trying to win and nearly $100,000 at the casino and I haven’t been given diamonds for days. I am so disappointed I am deleting this app for good and never recommending it again. The stingy casino takes away all the fun. Funny, won’t let me submit the review. Hmmm
The game retrieves data and if you don’t buy coins or gems, you cannot earn them. Using the casino should allow you to earn gems from the coins you earned. The more restaurants and levels you play, the least likely you can earn gems. The creators want you to buy the gems and I prefer to earn them. There shouldn’t be withholding the gems, just because I won’t pay for them. I have spent over 50000 coins at one time without any results. Bad showmanship.
Game booted me out
Game booted me out after paying $100’s dollars to play and did NOT restore my monies nor my GEMS I paid for & I lost my 1st place title in the tournament!
Starter gambling concerns
I heard my kids discussing the game and mentioning gambling. I didn’t like the sound of it, so I had my son show me the game. It all looks pretty harmless, until I saw the slot machine and gambling aspects. I am not okay with a children’s app introducing my kids to Vegas’style gambling. To me this is the equivalent of YouTube ‘starter porn’ that features naughty cartoon characters with boners (yes, something like this was accessed by a friend of my son’s and shown to kids at a recent gathering), or cigarette ads that glamorize smoking. In and of itself, it seems innocuous, but over time, it might have damaging effects on kids with addictive personalities. I think your ratings should include Gambling as one of the concerns other families should know about.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
You’re an aspiring chef who finally gets a restaurant. Starting off with a diner that serves burgers, sodas, and hot dogs, you have to move burgers onto a grill, onto buns when they’re cooked, and into the hands of waiting patrons. As your eatery does well, you’ll get more customers and make more money: As a result, you can upgrade both your grill and your restaurant’s decor and add more complicated meals to the menu, which will bring in ever more customers, continuing this delicious cycle. As the game progresses, it gets exponentially more difficult, as you manage more ingredients and more customers. If you don’t have enough money to upgrade ingredients or the restaurant, you can either wait or pay real money.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
Though this may be a basic time-management game, Cooking Fever is quite addictive. As the game progresses, the meals get more complicated to prepare, and the customers come more quickly. But the game wisely amps things up slowly, while also enticing you with the option to upgrade your restaurant, which can make your job slightly easier. Cooking Fever also does a good job of not being as much of a money grab as some similar games. In fact, the only downside is the nagging feeling that it’s been done before and doesn’t add anything new to the well-worn formula — that, and the fact that it might make you hungry.

Families can talk about in-app purchases and set expectations before downloading game that contain them.
Talk about running a food-service business. What are the priorities? How are they reflected in the game?
Discuss healthy eating. How could you change the meals in the game to make them healthier?
