Gameplay

Serve customers to be on your way of opening a 5-star restaurant!

Like the vast majority of cooking games, you have been given a building that desperately needs renovating. At first, you hire a barista, open a cafe and serve a few customers. Once you’ve served some customers, you need to hire a cupcake chef.

When customers order, you need to be quick but one thing I noticed is that if a customer orders a cupcake and a coffee, you can’t just give them a coffee while they’re waiting. Both items need to be served at the same time. If you want to change this, you can by using gems but of course, you need to make a purchase with real cash to do so. My takeaway from the gameplay is that there’s a lot of waiting around and personally I’m not a fan of games like this.

Similar to oldies like Farmville, you have to grow your own coffee beans to be able to serve them so you also need to keep up with inventory.

Graphics

The graphics are nothing special!

Comparing Tasty Town to other cooking games, the graphics are nothing special. If I was to compare them to just one game, it would be Gardenscapes. They’re vibrant, colorful, function properly and make a nice looking game. I have nothing against the graphics, but I feel like they could be slightly better.

Music & Sounds

Imagine your favorite cooking game, now imagine the music… this is exactly how the game sounds. Although when it comes to most games, I hate when the music is generic and not much thought has been brought into it, I feel like cooking games have a pass. Even though the music doesn’t help with the actual gameplay itself, it does add to the relaxing feelings the game already brings.

Controls

Tap to control!

Tasty town has no set controls. To collect orders, you need to tap, to send them to the chef you need to drag and to serve them to the customers, you need to drag again. The controls are fairly simple so there’s no way of not understanding them. As I said, there are no set controls, it’s just a touch-based kind of system.

The Verdict

Tasty Town could’ve been better!

In all honesty, I didn’t enjoy Tasty Town anywhere near as much as I thought I would. When I had a look at it on the app store, Social Point made it look like it was one of those cooking games like Cooking Craze where you get to make and serve the food yourself. However, I do think Tasty Town has the potential to be a better game with a few small improvements – it’s just not for me, unfortunately.
