There are so many fun cooking games on the market. I find it to be hard to decide which one will be entertaining as some others or similar to each another, just a smidge of a difference. However, when it comes to a cooking game, I like it to be easy to understand, challenging, and yet colorful and bright. That is why I’m impressed by the game My Universe – Cooking Star Restaurant.
This is actually a fun and simple game to play. It is perfect to play anytime and doesn’t require too much time to understand as it’s all told to you, clearly with guidance right in the beginning. Every dish is cooked is what makes me jump for joy. It might require you to move the tools of the kitchen to prepare, but it doesn’t require too much work, just to be close enough. I like that, as it’s still challenging but doesn’t have you pushed to cut in a certain time or speed.
The game really plays nicely and has lovely, mellow style music that plays in the background, is very cheerful, and perfectly compliments the game’s graphics and bright, welcoming appearance. The characters are all designed nicely. There is a choice of player you’d like to be, so it’s not limited to a single female option or male. Instead, you can choose a style that you like.
Another part of this game I really enjoy is that it’s simple to do the task, not just the cooking but when you have to bring someone to a table, serve them and even clean up afterward. It’s nothing you need to do or have to worry about. No mini-game to make you do the work correctly and get rated or a star rating. Some games had that included, this isn’t like that, which I do like about it!
Instead, the cooking is the only piece that really matters. I mean you do other things, but it’s just one button press, like the letter A on the controller and it’s done. Plus, it doesn’t need to be a specific side or too close, you can stand to the right, left, or even be a bit away and still get to press A without it counting against you or removing a rating for you to level up. You still get it right and can level up for doing such a good job.
Oh yes, the fun of cooking is another thing that makes this game interesting. You won’t’ be cutting up just the same dish each time. Not that it would be bad too, but can be a bit boring to make burgers all the time. Instead, of the same dish, you’ll learn new recipes to make and prepare for each customer who wants a specific food. It’s then just something new you know now how to make and can prepare over and over.
In addition to the food, you can learn to make. There are other dishes and additions introduced later in the game. I was hoping that after all this joy, there would be no gloom. However, I did realize afterward that I considered the game to be perfect, but there is this one strange flaw, which is easy to see. A few times, the group of people you are seating may almost all aim for the same seat, which can be a bit funny, and then they move to their own chair. Also, the chef is in the kitchen making food, but no food to be seen, just him doing some hand movements. It’s a little funny, but doesn’t really take away from the game, just a bit strange and looks like it’s missing or something is wrong.
Lastly, I’d like to say that this game is cheerful and full of fun cooking challenges. It’s not too difficult and perfect for everyone to play. So if you wanted to play something that isn’t difficult, provides a relaxing appearance in visual graphics and how the game is to be played and allows you to cook and serve at your very own restaurant, this is the game to play!
