GourMania - Your own Restaurant Business!
Welcome to the land of GourMania, where you will use both your hidden object and time-management skills and learn the recipes of numerous dishes from several world cuisines. You will build your restaurant empire and choose which place to work in.
Best chef in the city? That's you!
The game can't offer much of a story, actually. You just start working as a chef in a fast-food, and as the game progresses, get an opportunity to purchase this business as well as some other restaurants in the vicinity, from a pizza hut to a sushi bar, and from a small seaside cafe to the Grand restaurant.
The game play in most aspects resembles that of the Go-Go Gourmet series. You have a number of customers ordering some food you have to cook, each with limited patience, a cash goal for each level and a time limit for the day. in order to cook a dish you have first to find all the necessary ingredients, hen perform some actions with them, and afterwards take our money.
Tip: try to look for ingredients order by order - this gives you additional bonuses.
The ingredients in one stage appear in the same spots, so after at least one level you already know where to look for sugar cubes or red caviar - that's convenient when time is almost out.
The cooking itself doesn't require actually using tools for processing food, you just assign tasks for the tools and order the processes. This sometimes needs strategical thinking, as hungry customers won't wait too long.
Between levels you are welcome to visit the shop for upgrades - they decrease the time for cooking. But be careful with spending all your money, as some levels will require you to acquire definite upgrades, and if you don't have enough cash, you'll have to replay the preceeding level, that can be quite frustrating at times.
One the most attrative features here is the possibility for you to choose the businesses you'll buy and develop. From time to time some of them will be for sale, and once you have the necessary amount, you are free to purchase and change your environment. At any moment of the game you can go back to any of your restaurants and continue earning stars for their rating. Thus they will bring you additional revenue.
On the whole tha game gives you quite a freedom in your decisions. And the visuals are present and attractive. Are you ready to start your restaurant business?
