Enter the delicious adventure of Cooking Tale a game that follows chef Audrey as she wins culinary prizes and adventures to her first job of delicious burgers. Play through 100s of levels in your browser or mobile as you master the art of cooking fine food and meeting your customer needs.
In each level you’ll have to serve a certain number of customers and make enough coins to pass (with bonuses if you can get all 3 stars for the level). Gameplay is click (or tap) based and starts out fairly basic for the first couple of levels with players cooking up things like grilled meat and mixing lemonade to pass to their visiting customers.
Meat for example is the most basic requiring players to collect meat from the shelf and place it on the grill for a few seconds. Lemonade on the other hand is a little more involved as you grab the jug of lemonade and a glass and mix them on your work bench (again for a few seconds).
All of this food is based on customer orders that come through the window and once met will leave some cash and a healthy tip if you’re fast enough. Cooking Tale does allow pre-preperation (ie; pre-cooking a piece of meat) which does make it more faster paced as you carefully balance your time and customer orders when compared to similar games. That’s not to say you ever feel unprepared for the levels as a handy practice option lets you practice any new recipe before you start the level.
If you’re chasing down high scores or simply having trouble meeting customer needs there are a few power ups to assist such as anti-burn to stop things burning, more patient customers, extra coins or extra customers. All of these help you earn more coins at the end of the day which is spent on simple upgrades to boost the speed of food preparation. In total there are around 40 options that take you all the way up to player level 550 (Cooking Tale is not shy on offering up content with 300 playable levels).
While a bit more basic than other cooking games in terms of design the sheer number of levels makes Cooking Tale a decent cooking title.
