Ice Cream Craze Tycoon Takeover - More Ice Cream and More Fun!
You might remember the hot and mouth-watering game Ice Cream Craze released last summer. This new release takes place some years later - and offers some significant twists in game play.
Want to eat the best ice-cream in town? Try selling it!
Jan, Anna's grandmother, used to have the best ice-cream shop in town once. But BigCo, the giant corporation, came and gradually took over the whole dessert industry. Monopoly is not good for anyone except the monopolist, and Anna decides to compete with the corporation and prove her ice-cream can be even better. An old Ice Cream Truck for sale comes in really handy...
As you understand, there is nothing special about the story here. But the game play offers some strategy twists that make the game a bit more than just a time-management game.
First of all, you are given a general goal which will let you compete with BigCo - 5000
dollars and level 3 stands in each location. You will have 9 locations, unlocked one after another. Each location will offer you some challenges, and once you have more than one unlocked location, you'll be able to choose which challenge to try. But trying a challenge will cost you money, and if you fail it you won't get your money back, so be careful in what you choose. Of course, winning each challenge will give you some prize, revealed beforehand, so you can make your decisions based on what you need most. Some prizes are money or different upgrades, some unlock new locations or give you a stand. Your stands (one at each location) bring you money everyday no matter what happens.
Each challenge is a single day you spend in your truck. Here you'll have customers coming to you. The types of customers depends on the location you choose for the challenge, and each type has some favorite ice-cream variants. As to the equipment, you have three conveyors with cones, cookies and ice-cream scoops of different flavors coming to you, and this is the main difficulty here, as you have to plan beforehand which ingredients to take in order to be able to reach the necessary ones later, as you can take them only in the order in which they appear. Of course, you have some plates to store the unnecessary food, but they are limited in number. There are also topping machines which add toppings of three different kinds to your ice-cream. Surely, there are also upgrades like espresso machine or cakes that give Anna a speed boost, increase your customers' patience or make the money stay on the counter longer.
Tip: be very careful in creating your desserts, or you'll have to recycle them and lose your energy. And once you are out of energy - you fail your challenge.
The graphics of the game are very cartoonish and cute, and the whole style is very pleasant. So, if you are looking for a nice time-management game to try, Ice Cream Craze: Tycoon Takeover could be a great choice!
