Sushi Master Chef
I was bored. I had just eaten sushi, very good sushi. I checked sushi in the iPad app store.
We ended up with this. It’s a standard food prep game—memorize the recipe and dish it out to the customers before they shit themselves with hunger. These little motherfuckers can’t even wait until their food reaches them to start losing their shit. You’re standing in front of them, making their food, and they’re turning red and making faces at you like "what did I do to deserve a sushi roll three seconds later than I wanted it???”
Also, that dude that looks like Wolverine? No shit, that’s Wolverine. Also, there are three that look like they needed to be carded. That little boy at the end is a sake fiend. Seriously, dudes. Also, loving how this is all just various shades of white people in an otherwise empty restaurant staring down their ambiguously brown chef. Me. I am ambiguously brown. Maybe not you.
Gameplay is pretty simple up until you reach this level I’m on here, where they hit you too hard and too fast with the most complicated pieces of fish-n-rice that you can possibly do. Then it’s just hard. Other than that, you deck out the simple recipes like it’s nothing. Tyler was able to play it without being shown any of the recipes whatsoever, and he did pretty good.
Probably my only real complaint is the translation issues that cropped up. You get a lot of sentences that come out kind of grammatically confusing. There are ads (it is a free game), but the one that hovers over gameplay is out of the way and can be completely ignored and the one that pops up between levels can be closed without a second thought. It’s kinda fun, kinda eh, but it was enjoyable enough for me to keep playing up to whatever level I’m on.
