Gameplay

Take orders from customers!

The Cook is another fairly simple game we’ve come across on the app store that we had to try. You get an order, a limited supply of food and you have to make the requested dish as close as possible. Sometimes they will ask for no tomatoes or carrots so it’s important to keep focused on the orders.

Graphics

The graphics are vibrant!

The graphics for The Cook are definitely vibrant and nice to look at, however, they’re not exactly the best. They’re not detailed, but they don’t need to be and I’m completely fine with it.

Music & Sounds

Despite the game being pretty fast-paced in my opinion, the music is slow and relaxing. I felt the pressure of getting the orders right but clearly SayGames have other plans to make you feel during the gameplay.

Controls

Control by dragging!

For the controls, all you need to do is drag food items onto the chopping board, drag to chop them up and then the same for frying it. It really couldn’t be more simple than that.

The Power of in-app Purchases

The Cook has no in-app purchases, however, you can collect cash by playing levels!

The Cook doesn’t have any in-app purchases, not even ads. When I come across games like this, I find it super odd, especially if they’re riddled with ads but don’t have the option to remove them.

You can collect cash from serving customers and with that cash, you can purchase new food for your restaurant, knives, and tableware.

The Verdict

What did you think of The Cook?!

Although The Cook isn’t necessarily a bad game, it just isn’t for me. This is due to the excessive ads that you can’t get rid of. I like to have the option, especially if I’m enjoying the gameplay. SayGames should really consider adding in in-app purchases as I think it would solve many problems.

If you decide to download The Cook, let us know what you think and if you agree or disagree with the things we said. Happy gaming and stay casual!
