Cooking Craze is a game developed by Big Fish Games.
This is the classic serving game that you probably already played but it has something fresh that makes it really fun to play. I’ve been playing for a couple of hours and I need to say that I’m getting pretty hungry! I think I’ll take a break and go get donuts at my local donut shop.
This game is really simple and fun and I highly recommend it especially for parents that want their kid to learn by playing. If your kid doesn’t know how to read yet this game is perfect for him. You are the owner of a restaurant and customers show up at your counter and order food by showing you an image of what they want. You need to cook your food and put the right topping on it and serve them to the customers as fast as you can. This is excellent to make your brain working fast and learn to think quick.
Here is some tips and tricks that we found that could help you on your way to become the greatest chef the world has ever known.
Make sure your food is ready
Food doesn’t expire if it is in the main basket/plates. Make sure it is always full. You can anticipate the orders by cooking more food.
Let’s say you have 4 plate ready in the basket and 3 customers show up, you can straight away put at least 2 other food on the grill because you know that they’ll order at least that. Don’t wait until your plates are empty!
The first upgrades you should get are the cooking upgrade which gives you the ability to cook more product at the same time and faster. The second one you get should always be the one increasing your number of basket/plates to keep more food “ready”.
After that, do not forget to always upgrade when you can. Upgrades that increase the amount of money you get can be really good but don’t forget that upgrades that let you serve food faster should be your priority. Don’t forget the drinks! 🙂
Pro: Restaurants change each 10 levels and there is new upgrades for each new restaurant. If you are near the end of a chapter and you can handle the customers easily, stop buying upgrades. Keep your money for the next chapter because your money carry on. Once you unlock the next one, you’ll be able to buy upgrades straight away.
Get more money with combos.
Getting combos earn you extra money and points. If you can handle it, don’t serve customers straight away. Wait until you have 2-3 and serve them all at once. You get bonus coins by serving many plates in a short laps of time.
But, watch out! If they wait for too long, they get mad and you earn less money and they can even leave your restaurants. Be careful with this but learn to use it at your advantage to maximize your rewards. You’ll need that money to buy your upgrades.
Do not put any toppings on your food before you know the customers order. You cannot guess their order and you don’t want to waste any food by having the wrong toppings.
This is even more relevant the further you are in the game because there is more and more combination of toppings.
In this game, it doesn’t cost you any energy to play a level. You only lose hearts if you fail to complete a level. This means that you can replay the levels that you cleared to get extra money in order to buy more upgrades and unlock the extra rewards for each level.
Each level can be replayed 3 times and earn you with extra coins and spoons. The only challenge, is that the requirement to succeed the level increase with each replay, such as “make sure no customers leave your shop angrily”.
Boosts can help you succeed if you are having trouble. Especially the boost that prevent your food from burning. This means that you can have full amount of food cooking at anytime which greatly increase your output potential. This is why it’s important to gather spoons so you can get more boosts!
