There are all kinds of fun time management restaurant games out there, but I think it was the curiosity factor that kept me going with Burger Bustle: Ellie’s Organics. There is a little back story that leads into the reason why Ellie wants to take on the fast food world with wholesome ingredients, and has had it with cutting corners for the sake of the bottom line. This is her time to “stick it to The Man”, and she starts off doing so in New York, New York. As The Chairman of the Board said “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere…”
The gameplay is pretty standard fast food restaurant… deal with orders, add new equipment, hire new people, give more choices, starting from burgers, chicken, or fish sandwiches, add condiments, organic treats and sodas, good home-style cookin’, and eventually, Ellie gets to go global, with outlets in ten nations, from The Big Apple to Down Under. The voices of some of your customers seem like they can get a little irritating sometimes, but they match well with the personalities. Would that someone outside of a video game try to take on an endeavor like this, we might just see a slimming down across the world, since there would no longer be HFCS or dextrose added in anything. So, if you dream of taking on Big Agri, but are merely a simple gamer with lots of good ideas, this might be a game worth looking into.
