Yummy Burger: Written iPhone App Review
Like many restaurant-themed time management titles, Yummy Burger is all about arranging food just the way your customer like’s it. In a simplified game style, Yummy Burger breaks it all down one customer at a time. Customers approach your stand (or restaurant if you’ve progressed on to the next level of game play) ask for their burger or meal and it’s your job to deliver it, just the way they want it. Mess up and it’s back to the drawing board.
Extra fun is to be had by all as customers start requesting you leave off certain items and add more and more sides to their meals. There are four main game mode – stand, restaurant, time trial and endurance – which you unlock as you play. You can also purchase more kid-friendly settings to make the game more appealing to younger players, but I think the app’s quite nice as is. Time management is a super addictive genre of game, and while Yummy Burger isn’t the most complex or well rendered game of the sort I’ve seen, it definitely holds its own.
Layout & Design:
As I mentioned briefly, the graphics in Yummy Burger are a bit simplistic. They’re not horribly advanced or slick, but they are clear which is a must in this kind of game where precision and order of ingredients count.
I was also a bit frustrated by the constant pop up advertisements in the game. Every time you bring up the main page the app tries to bring you to another app’s purchase page, not to mention there are also banner ads at every turn, and the app has several links that lead to in-app purchases. In other words, this app may not be suitable for children due to all the crazy outside links and advertisements, which makes it doubly frustrating that the graphics aren’t a bit more sophisticated.
It’s hard to beat free, and that’s what Yummy Burger is. This time management game is just easy enough to be addictive, and, despite all the ads, is a pretty good deal. It’s fun, amusing, distracting and you don’t have to pay a dime to enjoy it. What’s not to like?
If you do decide to upgrade the app or unlock slower modes, it’s gonna cost you. Kids modes are $7.99 each. It costs $4.99 to remove ads. And there’s a cheat button you can enable for a whopping $34.99. Click with care folks.
Yummy Burger iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
