Full Version Features

The free trial includes unrestricted access and allows you 60 minutes of play; which just got me started. The full version includes 40+ levels of gameplay, 4 different chains, 5 different types of customers, two modes of play (Career and Endless Shift) and high score tracking. At only 10MB, itís not a hard drive buster, nor will it clog up your dialup line for too long. And at $19.99 its not a wallet buster either: cheap enough to warrant casual play throughoutrepparttar year.



  • Appeals torepparttar 149980 rest of us (non-hardcore teen gamers)
  • High repeat playability
  • Easy to use, navigate


  • No multiple player support
  • Little high score competition (score posting available on publisherís website)

Bottom Line

A busy restaurateur provides a nice change of pace to card and puzzle games for those of us who arenít interested in shooting up aliens, goblins, or terrorists for 12 hours on end. Definitely high repeat playability, even after beatingrepparttar 149981 Career portion ofrepparttar 149982 game. Low price and download size are a real plus. Lacks in competition and multiple player support, however this only matters if youíre interested in such things. One of my top 10 games ofrepparttar 149983 year.
