Serve the customers within the time limit!

If you’re looking for a casual game that mixes fantasy and cooking together, this might be for you! I absolutely love cooking games and usually rate them quite highly, but having it mixed with the fantasy genre along with unusual ingredients is a treat!

Serve customers, clean up tables and restock ingredients within the time limit to win!


The graphics are great!

The graphics are so fun. I love how the characters move in a stiff way and how their heads are bigger than the rest of their bodies – it really adds something a bit different to your typical cooking game!

Music & Sounds

The audio in the background of the game is medievally themed which, of course, fits in perfectly with a game like this. Sometimes the music can make or break a game in my opinion but it didn’t bother me even after playing for a while!


Tap to control!

Like most cooking games on the app store, all you need to do is tap on the items, customers, and equipment to serve them! It’s all fairly simple but make sure to stay focused as it can become overwhelming even with these simple controls.

The Power of in-app Purchases

The Verdict

What did you think?!

I really enjoyed playing this, but unfortunately, it loses a star because of it not being a free game. I have nothing against in-app purchases when necessary but £8.99 for a full mobile game is a lot. Not to mention, there are many other games on the app store with the same kind of gameplay (for free!)
