In terms of so-called micromanagement, or restaurant games, 2006 was even more fruitful. Many developers produced a number of diner-dash-like titles based on the same scheme: they created new graphics and characters, while game play basics remained untouched. A title character (yep, that's a rare type of casual games with a live character!) is to accept and fulfill customers' orders to make customers happy at a time limit.
It took Dingo Games about 4 years to create a sequel to the Katamari Damacy-like indie game Tasty Planet that got the name Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds. Though the basic idea of controlling a small grey blob that can eat everything smaller than it is was left unchanged, there are rather many novelties in the fresh release. First of all you'll travel to much more different time periods then before. Your journey will start on the table of the scientists and take you to prehistoric era where you can regale yourself with dinosaurs and then to ancient Egyptians, Romans and more. Besides now your pet that truly believes our planet to be the tasty one (and there is no surprise as it can really taste every piece of it) will grow from the tiny size of an amoeba to the size of a galaxy within the same level.

When I was a child, I remember to bother my Mom to read a bedtime story every night, though she was even more sleepy after work. Nowadays new mobile devices make the task easier. As you come back home you find your advanced offspring estimating a new app she has just installed on your tablet. If the situation sounds familiar, than interactive kids books is the option. One of my last findings is The Elephant's Child, a dubbed interpretation of the famous fairy-tales by Rudyard Kipling. The application is actually a 20-page picture book full of different animations. Thus, apart of reading the text at the page bottom, a child may also tap the characters and the background image. 300+ animations promise almost never-ending discoveries and at least a couple of quiet months. Phew!

The origin of the term the promised land goes back to the ancient times when a nation was promised a land with farms and houses that they did not build. But they still had to concuer the land.

This means that you have to start from nothing. You will have lots of work to do. The tasks for you here are simillar to those of many games of this genre.
