It's Cookin Time (Diner Dash Review)

For anyone who has ever been a waiter before (or waitress), you probably realize the rigors that naturally come with the job can sometimes be a bit stressful.  From people who don't like the food that's been served to idiots who can't keep their "hyper" children under control, things can be a bit rough.  Which brings us to Flo.  Once trapped in the everlasting agony of corporate America, Flo has decided to leave her job for the greener pastures of being a waitress.  Sounds fun, right?

For those of you who have never played Diner Dash before, the basic concept of the game is to get through  a day of being a waitress while racking up tips and making as much money as possible to upgrade your diner.  Along the way you'll manage to serve people from all walks of life, from the elderly to even restaurant curators.  Gameplay is simple enough and what you could probably expect from the genre: greet the people at the door, seat the people, and serve them their food.  After they are done eating, it's just a simple matter of moving them out the door while you usher in the next group of people.  Do your job in a fast, effective manner to get a great tip and get you closer to your money goal for the day.

While it really is a simple app, Diner Dash can get very addicting when things become hectic later on in the game, and it's definitely something that you will probably sink quite a few hows into in your quest to move up the food chain.  It's a bit on the pricey side at 2.99 (.99 cents is basically the sweet spot for this app), but there is a light version available for those who would be more comfortable trying before they throw money at the developers.  For the price, it really is on the meh side.  If it goes on sale, though, I highly recommend picking this up and joining Flo is her quest to become the ultimate waitress.
