One of my favorite game genres is simulators, so it’s no surprise that I took a liking to Lunch Truck Tycoon almost immediately.
Developed by Diggidy, Lunch Truck Tycoon is an addicting and fun game for iPhone that takes players on an exciting journey from snack shack to food truck fame.
Concept and Gameplay:
Lunch Truck Tycoon is pretty similar to like-named games such as Lemonade Tycoon. The goal is to build your business from the ground up by providing customers with a great lunch experience.
Over time, you’ll earn enough money to purchase upgrades so you can bring in even more cash.
When you first open Lunch Truck Tycoon, the game takes you through a brief tutorial that gives you a basic overview of the game and all of its functions. The left side of the screen is where players can purchase trucks and upgrades, travel around the island, view the latest news headlines, and restock their truck.
Lunch Truck Tycoon is somewhat of a “set it and forget it” kind of game. What that means is that players have to make sure everything is in order (such as stocking items) prior to taking their turn.
Once their turn has begun and customers purchase food, players can’t make any changes to their truck.
While Lunch Truck Tycoon is pretty similar to other simulator games, I rather like the fact that this one makes you work extra hard in order to unlock additional truck accessories and food.
Leveling up is a gradual process that takes quite a bit of time, so it’s unlikely that players will zip through the game in a matter of hours.
When it comes to extra features, Lunch Truck Tycoon has all the bases covered.
The game offers plenty of player flexibility, primarily because they’re free to choose where they want to set up shop. Event headlines and special challenges pop up rather frequently, but players aren’t forced to take part in them.
When it comes down to numbers, Lunch Truck Tycoon players can reach level 45, as well as complete and gain content.
There are 30 different events for players to take part in, as well as 15 different competitions in five different locations where they can set up their lunch truck.
Lastly, if you’re a bit impatient, Lunch Truck Tycoon allows you to toggle turn speed via the fast-forward button that’s located at the top right of the screen.
Lunch Truck Tycoon is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. The game does include ads that pop up occasionally after a turn has completed, but they’re not terribly intrusive.
Players have the option of acquiring cash via in-app purchase, but doing so somewhat defeats the purpose of the game. Also, ads can be disabled for $0.99.
When it comes down to it, Lunch Truck Tycoon is a very addicting simulator game that features plenty of different game elements and room for players to experiment with items and strategies.
Lunch Truck Tycoon requires iOS 5.1.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
